Advantages of living after 50!


This article was forwarded to me by a young man called Timothy. Someone had to remind him, so he is reminding me too. Don't laugh.....it is all true...he said. BUT i think Timothy had forgotten, things have changed. What he received was the old version of thought. Read the following and see the different. His is in black and mine is in red.

Perks of reaching 50 or being over 60 and heading towards 70!

01. Kidnappers are not very interested in you.
It depends! Female kidnappers are still very much interested in me.

02. In a hostage situation you are likely to be released first.
Most likely they are afraid, their ladies might be attracted to me.

03. No one expects you to run--anywhere.
Hey Not true! I run all corners of the city everyday.

04. People call at 9 PM and ask,"did I wake you?"
Ayah! At 9 pm i am still painting the town red. At midnight i only write my blog.

05. People no longer view you as a hypochondriac.
Yes! Is because they see me as a very knowledgeable man.

06. There is nothing left to learn the hard way.
In selling life insurance, we still have to learn. I need to score 30 learning points a year, in order to renew my yearly license with Bank Negara.

07. Things you buy now won't wear out.
My little darling keeps changing my clothing to the latest fashion all the time.

08. You can eat supper at 4 PM.
At 4pm is my tea time with all my dears in town.

09. You can live without sex but not your glasses.
Life would have no meaning without sex for me. I have 2 to 3 sessions per week. What about you?

10. You get into heated arguments about pension plans.
I don't need pension plans because my career as a life insurance agent is a very highly paid profession till my last breath on Planet Earth. Only to those who is committed like RF.

11. You no longer think of speed limits as a challenge.
Come and sit in my car and you would scare out of your bottom. How i wish our speed limit could reach 180!!!

12. You quit trying to hold your stomach in no matter who walks into the room.
Unless that is a beautiful sexy lady.

13. You sing along with elevator music.
Not only sing but i dance along with the tune too.

14. Your eyes won't get much worse.
How i wish i don't have to go too often to see my optician yearly.

15. Your investment in health insurance is finally beginning to pay off.
I only see friends in the hospital. Thanks God! No friend has ever seen me admitted to hospital before.

16. Your joints are more accurate meteorologists than the national weather service.
I still have not acquired this ability yet coz i am a slow learner in this subject.

17. Your secrets are safe with your friends because they can't remember them either.
I avoid seeing those old folks who have little drive and i interact more with young, intelligence and aggression friends only. Like Timothy.

18. Your supply of brain cells is finally down to manageable size.
Unless you don't think and talk. My hobby is talking and my greatest interest is blogging.

19. You can't remember who sent you this list.
The one who is sending me this list is my most admirable friend, Timothy Loh.

20. And you notice these are all in Big Print for your convenience.
Big and small are no different to me. As long as the sharing is sincere and thoughtful.

Specially for Timothy - "Do not seek to follow in the footsteps of the men of old; seek what they sought" — Basho
