I looked on the internet to find some of those old jokes, I mean, jokes about getting old. I want to put on a happy face about that today. Here are a few:
You know you are getting old when…
…the names in your little black book are mostly doctors.
…the candles on your cake cost more than the cake.
…work is a lot less fun and fun is a lot more work.
…you and your teeth no longer sleep together.
…you have a party and the neighbors don’t even realize it.
…your back goes out more than you do.
…you turn lights out for economic reasons rather than romance.
…taking your pills in the morning takes longer than eating your pancakes.
…it takes you two tries to get off the couch.
…you go to bed before your kids.
…you give up all your bad habits and still don’t feel good.
…you are too old to feel this old.
Except for the one about the teeth, all of these apply…but I am afraid the teeth are started to give me warnings.
