these are so cute...and true!

Someone had to remind me, so I'm reminding you too. Don't laugh....... it is all true... Perks of reaching 50 or being over 60 and heading towards 70 and beyond!

01. Kidnappers are not very interested in you.
02. In a hostages situation you are likely to be released first.
03. No one expects you to run--anywhere.
04. People call at 9 pm and ask, did I wake you?
05. People no longer view you as a hypochondriac.
06. There is nothing left to learn the hard way.
07. Things you buy now won't wear out.
08. You can eat supper at 4pm.
09. You can live without sex but not your glasses.
10. You get into heated arguments about pension plans.
11. You no longer think of speed limits as a challenge.
12. You quit trying to hold your stomach in no matter who walks into the room.
13. You sing along with elevator music.
14. Your eyes won't get much worse.
15. Your investment in health insurance is finally beginning to pay off.
16. Your joints are more accurate meteorologists than the national weather service.
17. Your secrets are safe with your friends because they can't remember them either.
18. Your supply of brain cells are finally down to a manageable size.
19. You can't remember who sent you this list.
20. And you notice these are all in Big Print for your convenience. Forward this to everyone you can remember right now! And remember, never, ever, under any circumstances, take a sleeping pill and a laxative on the same night.

Can i not laugh? now i only realized kidnappers are not interesting in me.

but on a serious note, "Your secrets are safe with your friends because they can't remember them either."

I beg to differ. :)
