    If my body was a car 
     
     

    If my body were 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 Cremes 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

    I went to one quack who told me to think of my body as a car and if my car/body was in an accident I would take it to a repair shop/doctor.I told the quack that I had been taking my body to doctors for awhile and that the doctors had were just like car repair shops. That they charge you for the work even though they never fix anything. That if you don't know or have one in your family your going to get taken.
