THE BIG 40!!

They say that Inside every old person,
is a younger person wondering
what in the world happened!!!

And so, now that I am now at the
ripe old age of 40, as of yesterday,
that about sums it up!

But Hey.

So my thoughts on being 40?
It stinks! Seriously.
I'm am in denial about getting old,
but my body doesn't always let
me stay that way unfortunately.

Every time I think about exercise,
I lie down til the thought goes away.

I realise that the
"I just woke up" face of
my 30's, is the "all day long"
face of my 40's.

And that Forty isn't that old...
if you're a tree!!

And of course in regard to
body shape and weight:

Eat right, Stay Fit,
Die Anyway!

And did you know,

Old age comes on suddenly,
not gradually, as I thought? 

A woman tells her doctor, 'I've got a bad back.'
The doctor says, 'It's old age.'
The woman says, 'I want a second opinion.'
The doctor says: 'Okay, you're ugly as well.'

So, as you can see, I'm not really
that excited about turning 40.
I never thought I'd really mind,
but now it's here, well,
man! I feel old!!

But hey, I can still turn a cartwheel (I think),
 I can still run up the stairs,
I can still somersault into the water,
I can still ride a skateboard,
I can still play dodgeball at youth group,
I can still play a mean ragtime on the piano,
so I do have a lot to be grateful for really.

And to all you 'young ones',

Respect old people.
They graduated school without
Google or Wikipedia.

Being 40 means I've had lots of
experience and you know what experience is...

Experience is what you get when
you didn't get what you wanted:)

And on that note, to anyone who is
approaching my age, I'll leave you
with this encouraging thought...

Brain cells come,
and brain cells go,
but FAT cells live forever!!
