Lighten up Mondays

Posted on Updated on

I celebrated my birthday last week, an event that really doesn’t bother me. There are those who aren’t quite enamored with getting older. Here’s some humor for you:

Rock stars used to say, “Don’t trust anyone over 30!”
Now that many of them are over 50 they say, “Oops, we didn’t mean us.”


You Know Your Old When:

  • You and your teeth don’t sleep together.
  • People call at 9 p.m. and ask, “Did I wake you?”
  • You begin every other sentence with, “Nowadays…”
  • The clothes you’ve put away until they come back in style… come back in style.
  • Things you buy now won’t wear out.
  • You sing along with the elevator music.
  • You wear black socks with sandals.
  • You get into a heated argument about pension plans.
  • When all you want for your birthday is to not be reminded of your age.
  • Your address book has mostly names that start with Dr.
  • You sit in a rocking chair and can’t get it going.

      It was great: hiked early in the day, dinner out that evening.
