On Getting Old

You know you’re getting old…
…when you feel like it’s the morning after, and you didn’t go anywhere the night      
…when you look forward to a dull evening.
…when a little old lady helps you across the street, and it’s your wife.
…when you get winded playing chess.
…when you sink your teeth into a thick steak, and they stay there.
…when everything that doesn’t hurt doesn’t work.
…when the gleam in your eyes is the sun hitting your bifocals.
…when your children are older than you re-member your parents being when you 
    were young.
…when your mind makes contracts that your body can’t keep.
…when you finally know all the answers, and no-body’s asking you any questions.
…when the favorite part of the newspaper is the section under the heading “25 years 
    ago today.”
…when you sit down in a rocking chair and can’t get it going.
…when your knees buckle but your belt won’t.
…when your back goes out more often than you do.
…when you get excited and your pacemaker makes the garage door go up.
…when your house is too big, and the medicine cabinet is too small.
…when you wake up and realize that the best part of the day is over.
…when you figure that if God wanted you to touch your toes, He would have put 
    them on your knees.
…when your spouse says, “Let’s go upstairs and make love,” and you say, “Honey, 
    we can’t do both.”
…when your friends compliment you on your new alligator shoes, and you’re not 
    wearing shoes.


A group of senior citizens were talking at the breakfast table in a Palm Springs nursing home.

"My arms are so weak I can hardly lift this cup of coffee," said one.

"Yes, I know. My cataracts are so bad I can't even see my coffee," replied another.

"I can't turn my head because of the arthritis in my neck," said a third, to which several nodded weakly in agreement.

"My blood pressure pills makes me dizzy," another went on.

"I guess that's the price we pay for getting old," winced an old man as he slowly shook his head.

Then there was a short moment of silence.

"Well, it's not that bad," said one woman cheerfully. "Thank God we can all still drive."
