If my body was a car, a little chuckle

    I thought some of you others may relate to this also. I sure did. Hope it gives you a little chuckle.

    If my body was a car, this is the time I would be thinking about trading it in for a newer model. I've got bumps and dents and scratches in my finish and my paint job is getting a little dull, but that's not the worst of it.

    My fenders are too wide to be considered stylish. They were once as sleek as a little MG; now they look more like an old Buick.

    My seat cushions have split open at the seams. My seats are sagging. Seat belts? I gave up all belts when Krispy Creme's opened a shop in my neighborhood!

    Air bag's? Forget it. The only bags I have these days are under my eyes. Not counting the saddlebags, of course.




    I have soooooo many miles on my odometer. Sure, I've been many places and seen many things, but when's the last time an appraiser factored life experiences against depreciation?




    My headlights are out of focus and it's especially hard to see things up close.

    My traction is not as graceful as it once was. I slip and slide and skid and bump into things even in the best of weather.

    My whitewalls are stained with varicose veins.




    It takes me hours to reach my maximum speed.




    My fuel rate burns inefficiently.




    But here's the worst of it - almost every time I sneeze, cough or sputter ... either my radiator leaks or my exhaust backfires.

    If my body were a car, I too, would be at the new car dealership first thing in the morning to trade it in on a new "deluxe" model!!!

    The best thing about new models, if they don't work, you can take them back for a new one!!! (Yeah, right! That applies to other things, but not cars!!!)

    (I certainly wouldn't want to get a lemon!!)
