The advantages of being old

Old guyI’ve come to terms with my age.
At least for this week.

I’ve even decided there’s a few good things about our elder years.

Something for you to look forward to.

Write these in your diary and then look at them in a bunch of years.

I generally give less of a damn about what people think of me.
A skill I wish I had in my 20’s when some lady turned me down for a dance at the local Friday night hangout.

9:00 pm has become a socially acceptable bedtime.

Gossip bothers me way less now.
I still like to hear the dirt on people though.

I don’t feel the need to join every single new social media network.
However, people can join this blog if they want too.

All my friends are just as tired as I am.

I have no problem telling people to go jump in a lake if they make me grumpy.

Getting ready now takes less than 5 minutes because I wear what’s comfortable and not too dirty.

If I have a crush on someone, I just tell them.
They like to hear it because they think I’m harmless.

Sadly I admit they are probably right.

I ponder my late teens and wonder what the hell was I thinking.

Vacations don’t have to involve any plans besides naps.

I’ve learned to take everything a lot less personally.

I guess that’s why us old folks are considered grumpy.

I don’t care.
