The Perks of Being Over 50

Snagged from this website:

1. Kidnappers are not very interested in you.
2. In a hostage situation, you are likely to be released first.
3. No one expects you to run -- anywhere.
4. People call at 9 p.m. and ask, "Did I wake you?"
5. People no longer view you as a hypochondriac.
6. There is nothing left to learn the hard way.
7. Things you buy now won't wear out.
8. You can eat dinner at 4 p.m.
9. You can live without sex (though not without glasses).
10. You enjoy hearing about other people's operations.
11. You get into heated arguments about pension plans.
12. You have a party and the neighbors don't even realize it.
13. You no longer think of speed limits as a challenge.
14. You quit trying to hold your stomach in, no matter who walks into the room.
15. You sing along with elevator music.
16. Your eyes won't get much worse.
17. Your investment in health insurance is finally beginning to pay off.
18. Your joints are more accurate meteorologists than the National Weather Service.
19. Your secrets are safe with your friends because they can't remember them, either.
20. Your supply of brain cells is finally down to a manageable size.

I set my date for next month; I was admonished by the nurse practitioner when I asked about being awake or in twilight; apparently their routine does not include either, and as such I had to coordinate a date to allow for a ride home.     So the decision of awake/out-cold has been made for me.

Comment by Edward Warden on December 6, 2014 at 9:14pm

I did 11 pullups Wednesday, after doing 100 pushups.  I don't think I've done a set of more than 10 pullups since 2007, when I was 45.  My best is 13 or 14, so I may get back there.

Out. Recently had a stress test, shit, didn't like it at all.

Comment by Carl Monster on November 16, 2014 at 7:46am

I heard the term "twilight" used instead of awake, as in they do give you something that keeps you barely conscious.

When I was out cold I got up and nearly vomited on the way home, as the anesthesia made me quite nauseous. May wanna consider that.

Comment by Scott J on November 12, 2014 at 10:28pm

I've been awake for both of mine, found it interesting. 

Comment by Tim on November 12, 2014 at 10:07pm

Pocono Charlie, thanks for the reminder to schedule mine. I'm thinking out cold but awake could be oddly fascinating....

Comment by Pocono Charlie on November 12, 2014 at 9:52pm

Edward: great stats!

Comment by Pocono Charlie on November 12, 2014 at 9:51pm

So I am taking a survey.  

Colonoscopy:

  • Awake
  • Out cold

Your vote?

Comment by Edward Warden on November 8, 2014 at 3:30pm

This morning I had my fourth run this week of over 5 miles, including a 7-mile run Tuesday. This is my best-ever week for running, and yesterday, I did 103 pushups, also a new high. Our bodies are great gifts.
