Old

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 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 spouse 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!!
