    The Perks Of Being Over 50

    1. Kidnappers are not very interested in you.

    2. In a hostage situation you are likely to be released first.

    3. No one expects you to run into a burning building - or anywhere else.

    4. People call at 9 PM and ask, "Did I wake you?"

    5. People no longer view you as a hypochondriac.

    6. There is nothing left to learn the hard way.

    7. Things you buy now won't wear out.

    8. You can eat dinner at 4 P.M.

    9. You can live without sex but not without glasses.

    10. You enjoy hearing about other people's operations.

    11. You get into heated arguments about pension plans.

    12. You have a party and the neighbors don't even realize it.

    13. You no longer think of speed limits as a challenge.

    14. You quit trying to hold your stomach in, no matter who walks into the room.

    15. You sing along with elevator music.

    16. Your eyes won't get much worse.

    17. Your investment in health insurance is finally beginning to pay off.

    18. Your joints are more accurate meteorologists than the national weather service.

    19. Your secrets are safe with your friends because they can't remember them either.

    20. Your supply of brain cells is finally down to manageable size.

    21. You can't remember who sent you this list.

    I loved this! Thank you so much, you made my day! (Of course it would be funnier it if wasn't so true!)

    It is all so true.

    I still try and suck in my stomach though.

    I found that did'nt change the flab on my thighs.

    We have won a lot, but, we can'nt win them all.

    Keep on trucking! Denamay

    This is great! I had to copy and send to both of my brothers who are also "over 50"!

    find yourself searching all the grocery ads in the Sunday paper for sales. My parents did this and it drove me crazy, but I guess it's a 50's thing, ( I turned 51 yesterday). With the gas prices going up so high, I feel I may be doing this a lot more and cutting a lot more coupons!!
