YEI – A bit of fun..
Ten benefits of being a sixty-plusser
The two things you need most as you age, is good health and a good sense of humour!
YEI knows of a wonderful, feisty 86 year old lady who only buys
green bananas and small tubes of toothpaste!
Here are ten tongue-in-cheek benefits when it comes to being a sixty-plusser.
- It’s likely that kidnappers are not too interested in you
- In a hostage situation, you are likely to be released first
- You are not expected to run, anywhere
- People call at 8pm and ask – Did I wake you up?
- People no longer view you as a hypochondriac
- There is nothing left to learn the hard way
- Things you buy now won’t wear out
- You can eat supper at 5pm, you can have breakfast at 5pm if you want!
- You can live without sex, but definitely can’t live without your glasses
- You can’t remember who sent you this list!
Forward this to anyone you know who is a sixty-plusser, and let’s hear if you identify with anything or everything on the list, and what further you have to add.
And last pearl of wisdom – don’t ever in any circumstance,
take a sleeping pill and a laxative on the same night!
Until next month…
Marilyn and the YEI Team
