Observations on Growing Older ---

I received this in email from a friend.

~It's harder to tell navy from black!
~Yellow becomes the big color...walls...hair...teeth!
~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.
~You forget names.....but it's OK because other people
forgot they even knew you.
~The five 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 sleeps better on a lounge chair with the TV
blaring then 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!"
~The best place to have a conversation with your husband is in
the bathroom ... you have his full attention.
~Who wants to wear 3" heels anyway?
~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 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.
~Many of the people in People Magazine you've never heard of.
~Your lipstick bleeds. Your mascara clumps and your
eyebrows are disappearing. You don't have hair under
your arms and very little on your legs but your chin needs
to be plucked daily!
~What used to be freckles are now liver spots.
~Everybody whispers.

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