Seven Great Truths About Growing Old

Laug a little
Next December I’ll be 62 years old, or 62 years young, depending on your glass perspective.  Remember, half full or half empty?  In my experience, aging is painful and exhilarating at the same time.  Suffering from physical pains everywhere in your body is bad, but receiving a pay check every month without working is very pleasant.  Reflecting on the aging process, I found the following truths which you might find worth reading.

  1. Growing up is mandatory; growing old is optional.
  2. Forget the health food. I need all the preservatives I can get.
  3. When you fall down, you wonder what else you can do while you’re down there.
  4. You’re getting old when you get the same sensation from a rocking chair that you once got from a roller coaster.
  5. It’s frustrating when you know all the answers but nobody bothers to ask you the questions.
  6. Time may be a great healer, but it’s a lousy beautician.
  7. Wisdom comes with age, but sometimes age comes alone.

I asked my wife to put only one candle on top of my birthday cake.  Sixty-two candles would be much brighter than New York city at night.
