The joys of getting old

Oh, sure. People put it down. They want to look young (for some reason). And they're scared to death of, well, death.

But there's a lot to be said for aging. I like it! Here are some of the advantages that accrue to the aged person:
1. You can get away with anything. The worst that happens is someone says, "Ignore him. He's just some crazy old coot." Yay!

2. Most of the people you know are dead. Okay, I can see how some people might see this in a negative light. But the important thing here is that their memories of your most embarrassing moments died along with their bodies. Poof! All gone. It's like you're a new person.

3. Well, okay. I can't think of another positive thing about aging. But I like 1 and 2. Anyone want to append another?
