Settling In

I’m 3/4 of the way through being 60.  Sadly, I find most of the declarations below accurate.

Maybe you do also?

The Perks of being over 60.

  • Your supply of brain cells is finally down to a manageable size.
  • Your secrets are safe with your friends because they can’t remember them either.
  • You sing along with elevator music.
  • Your joints are more accurate than The Weather Channel at predicting rain.
  • You have a party and your neighbors don’t even realize it.
  • People call at 9pm and ask “Did I wake you”?
  • People no longer view you as a hypochondriac.
  • Things you buy now won’t wear off.
  • You can live without sex, but not without glasses.
  • You enjoy hearing about other people’s operations.
  • You get into heated arguments about pension plans.
  • You an eat dinner at 4:00pm.
  • There is nothing left to learn the hard way.
  • You no longer think of speed limits as a challenge.
  • You quit trying to hold your stomach in, no matter who walks into the room.
  • You know (hope) your eyes won’t get much worse
  • Your investment in health insurance is finally beginning to pay off.
  • Kidnappers are not interested in you.
  • In a hostage situation you are likely to be released first.
  • No one expects you to run into a burning building (I do miss doing that, though)

    And people have lower expectations of you, making it easy to live up to such expectations.

  3. You kids. Try over 70. Then, the only expectation people have is what day you will die. Of course, a life sentence doesn’t have the deterrent effect it used to.
