As I Get Older I Realize ...


Amazing what you can find on the Internet, isn't it? I ran across this yesterday, and it's just spot on with my own experience, especially #'s 4, 5, and 8 ...

1. I talk to myself because sometimes I need expert advice.

2. Sometimes I roll my eyes out loud.

3. I don't need anger management. I need people to stop pissing me off.

4. My people skills are just fine ... it's my tolerance of idiots that needs work.

5. The biggest lie I tell myself is, "I don't need to write that down - I'll remember it."

6. When I was a child, I thought nap time was punishment. Now it's like a mini-vacation.

7. The day the world runs out of wine is just too terrible to think about.

8. Duct tape can't fix stupid, but it can muffle the sound.

9. Wouldn't it be great if we could put ourselves in the dryer for ten minutes and come out wrinkle-free and three sizes smaller?

10. "Getting lucky" means walking into a room and remembering why I'm there.

What would you add to the list, Dear Readers? Leave a comment and let us know.

Have a good day. More thoughts tomorrow.

Adulthood involves responsibilities. Do you really want to grow up?

11. Never pass up an opportunity to pee.

#12. My eyes still tell me to eat as though I'm a growing boy - but my body tells me it found a new way to grow (out, not up).

You've just triggered an epiphany for me!

I just experienced #10, but often forget until I walk back from whence I came to retrace my thoughts!

#5a - You write it down and can't remember what your note refers to.

My very first post (more than 9 yrs ago) was on anger management (sort of).

Since I'm a tech moron and don't know how to make that a link, you'll have to copy and paste. Sorry.
