Thoughts for the Day


Things to consider:

  • The easiest way to find something lost around the house is to buy a replacement.
  • The Roman Numerals for forty (40) are ‘XL’.  Do you think the clothing industry knows this?
  • The sole purpose of a child’s middle name is so he can tell when he’s really in trouble.
  •  When you put the word ‘the‘ together with the ‘IRS’ it spells…  Theirs.

About Aging:

  • Eventually you will reach a point when you stop lying about your age and start bragging about it.
  • Some people try to turn back their odometers. Not me, I want people to know ‘why’ I look this way.  I’ve traveled a long way and some of the roads weren’t paved.
  • The older you get, the tougher it is to lose weight…   because by then your body and your fat have gotten to be really good friends.
  • When you are dissatisfied and would like to go back to your youth, think of Algebra.
  • You know you are getting old when everything either dries up or leaks.
  • One of the many things no one tells you about aging is that it is such a nice change from being young. Ah, being young is beautiful, but being old is comfortable.  (Just don’t tell my frenemy, Arthur Itis!)

  1. My favorite is the one about the IRS. My husband will especially like it!

    I don’t want to repeat my youth either; not that it was bad, but I have no reason to want to. I prefer the excitment that’s ahead. Hey… Call me an optimist!

  2. Simply perfect! I’ll try and translate it to Swedish – although I may have to omit the one about IRS and Arthur Itis, since the joke would be lost in translation.
