The "grown-up" list REALLY made my 23-yr-old laugh. Me too. Mr. Change refused comment. On the other hand, I found 50 to be an excellent year, when I went to Paris, learned SCUBA, discovered my ardent love for Belize and realized that what other people think of me is absolutely none of my business.
At 50 I went back to my maiden name and entered the most romantic and sizzling love affair of my life. At 56 I got my SCUBA certification and started making trips to exotic places. At 60 I dyed my hair red, bought a red convertible and said I was looking for a husband and this time I didn’t want it to be someone else’s. At 61 I came to Belize in time to be evacuated for Hurricane Mitch and just kept coming back. At 65 I moved here . . . and lived happily ever after.
When your belt size keeps getting larger When you moan every time you bend over When you speak of the Kinks, you're no longer speaking of a rock group When your back goes out more than you do When you have more laugh lines than it's possibly funny When you notice more hair in the sink than on your head When you consistently forget to turn off your left-hand directional signal When your arms aren't long enough to read the menu When it's easier to tell the Doctor what's not hurting, than what is hurting When the only exercise you get is walking to the golf cart When talking of getting lucky, you're referring to your golf game When you refer to Thirty year olds as kids When you flirt with chicks at a bar & they tell you, you remind them of their father When you attend your high school reunion and everyone there looks like your parents When your children are studying in history what you've lived through When everyone you know, you call Buddy, because you can't remember their name When every day you take nearly the entire alphabet of vitamins When you start receiving mail from AARP When the host at the restaurant asks to see your senior citizen discount card When Social Security notifies you of what you have to retire on is less than what you made when first started to work When you look in the mirror and you've still got it Kid!
