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!!!
