Observations on Growing Older

~ Your kids are becoming you ... and you don't like them
...but your grandchildren are perfect!

~ Going out is good.
Coming home is better!

~ When people say you look "Great"...
they add "for your age!"

~ When you needed the discount, you paid full price.
Now you get discounts on everything ... movies, hotels, flights,
but you're too tired to use them.

~ You forget names ... but it's OK because
the other people forgot they even knew you!!!

~ The 5 pounds you wanted to lose is now 15 and
you have a better chance of losing your keys than the 15 pounds.

~ You realize you're never going to be
really good at anything .... especially golf.

~ Your husband is counting on you
to remember things you don't remember.

~ The things you used to care to do,
you no longer care to do,
but you really do care that you
don't care to do them anymore.

~ Your husband sleeps better on a lounge chair with the TV blaring
than he does in bed.  It's called his "pre-sleep".

~ Remember when your mother said
"Wear clean underwear in case you GET in an accident"?
Now you bring clean underwear in case you HAVE an accident!

~ You used to say,
"I hope my kids GET married ...
Now, "I hope they STAY married!"

~ You miss the days when everything worked
with just an "ON" and "OFF" switch..

~ When GOOGLE, ipod, email, modem ... were unheard of,
and a mouse was something that made you climb on a table.

~ You used to use more 4 letter words ...
"what?"..."when?" ???

~ Now that you can afford expensive jewelry,
it's not safe to wear it anywhere.

~ Your husband has a night out with the guys
but he's home by 9:00 P.M. ...
next week it will be 8:30 P.M.

~ You read 100 pages into a book
before you realize you've read it.

~ Notice everything they sell in stores is "sleeveless"?!!!

~ What used to be freckles are now liver spots.

~ Everybody whispers.

~ Now that your husband has retired ...
you'd give anything if he'd find a job!

~ You have 3 sizes of clothes in your closet ....
2 of which you will never wear.

~ But old is good in some things:
old songs
old movies
And best of all OLD FRIENDS!!

Love you, "OLD FRIEND!"

Send this on to other "Old Friends!" and
let them laugh in AGREEMENT!!!
