Mid-life is when you go to the doctor and you realize you are now so old, you have to pay someone to look at you naked.


~*~*~*~


The good news about mid-life is that the glass is still half-full... of course, the bad news is that it won't be long before your teeth are floating in it.


~*~*~*~


Mid-life women no longer have upper arms, they have wingspans...they are no longer women in sleeveless shirts, they are flying squirrels in drag.


~*~*~*~


Mid-life has hit you when you stand naked in front of a mirror and can see your rear end without turning around.


~*~*~*~


You know you are getting old when you go for a mammogram and you realize it is the only time someone will ask you to appear topless in film.


~*~*~*~


You know you've crossed the mid-life threshold when you're in the grocery store and you hear a Muzak version of "Stairway to Heaven" in the produce department.


~*~*~*~


Mid-life is when you bounce (a lot), but you don't bounce back. (It's more like Splat!)


~*~*~*~   


Mid-life brings the wisdom that life throws you curves... and that you're now sitting on your biggest ones.


~*~*~*~


Mid-life is when you want to grab every firm young lovely in a tube top and scream, "Listen, honey, even the Roman Empire fell, and those things will too!


~*~*~*~


Mid-life can bring out your angry, bitter side. You look at your latte-swilling, beeper-wearing know-it-all teenager and think, "For this I have stretch marks?


~*~*~*~


Mid-life is when you start to repeat yourself... and your chins follow suit.


~*~*~*~


Mid-life is when you realize that if you were a dog, you'd need a control top flea collar.


~*~*~*~


Mid-life is when your memory really starts to go. The only thing you still retain is water.


~*~*~*~


You become more reflective in mid-life. You start pondering the "big" questions... what is life, why am I here... how much Healthy Choice ice cream can I eat before it's no longer a healthy choice?


And for those of you not there yet...


Just wait!!!

"OLD" IS WHEN..... Your sweetie says, "Let's go upstairs and make love," and you answer, "Honey, I can't do both!"

"OLD" IS WHEN..... Your friends compliment you on your new alligator shoes and you're barefoot.

"OLD" IS WHEN..... A sexy babe catches your fancy and your pacemaker opens the garage door.

"OLD" IS WHEN..... Going bra-less pulls all the wrinkles out of your face.

"OLD" IS WHEN..... You don't care where your spouse goes, just as long as you don't have to go along.

"OLD" IS WHEN..... When you are cautioned to slow down by the doctor instead of by the police.

"OLD" IS WHEN..... "Getting a little action" means I don't need to take any fiber today.

"OLD" IS WHEN..... "Getting lucky" means you find your car in the parking lot.

"OLD" IS WHEN..... An "all nighter" means not getting up to pee!

My forgetter's getting better
But my rememberer is broke
To you that may seem funny but,
To me, that is no joke

For when I'm "here" I'm wondering
If I really should be "there"
And, when I try to think it through,
I haven't got a prayer!

Oft times I walk into a room,
Say "what am I here for?"
I wrack my brain, but all in vain
A zero, is my score.

At times I put something away
Where it is safe, but, Gee!
The person it is safest from
Is, generally, me!

When shopping I may see someone,
Say "Hi" and have a chat,
Then, when the person walks away
I ask myself, "who's that?"

Yes, my forgetter's getting better
While my rememberer is broke,
And it's driving me plumb crazy
And that isn't any joke

If you pass this page on
I won't get mad...

In fact, it would make
this old lady glad.
