Tuesday Tidbits...

Here are some interesting, hmmmm, facts about getting older that everyone should be warned aware about...

...think about the word menopause;  men...on...pause.  Despite what some celebrities say (i.e. Suzanne Somers) about the fab-u-lous  sex life you can look forward to as you age; don't kid yourself!  Not that a mature sex life isn't okey-dokey, but the facts are, after hauling your sorry butt off the couch and getting to the bed well...mostly, all you can think about is how comfy it looks for sleep! 

So...unless you have gobs of money for biohormonal whatchamacallit's, personal trainers and chefs it is best to stay in the "real" world and accept sleep often trumps you-know-what...sorry!

...as we age, things don't just go south, they head for the Antartica.  Our parts change shape and suddenly, your butt goes "flat" and your belly's got "back"!  J-Lo just wait, it'll happen to you, too!

...your patience declines equivalent to your husband's hearing loss.

...developing aches and pains is normal as we age.  It often begins in our late 30's or 40's, but there comes a time when we suddenly start hurting in places that are immoral and illegal!

...you're looking through old photos of your mother who is 50+ and abruptly realize you're looking at your face!

...your husband is laughing as he tells you a story about some "Old Gal" who was hitting on him at the coffee shop and when you ask, "How old?", he says, "Oh, around ______ (fill in your age)!!

...our memory isn't what it once was so, we cleverly substitute words like; thingabobs, doodads and &%!Z0 forget it!

And finally...

“There is a fountain of youth: it is your mind, your talents, the creativity you bring to your life and the lives of people you love. When you learn to tap this source, you will truly have defeated age.”
Sophia Loren

Tha..tha..that's all folks!
