Great Truths About Growing Old

eureka
  1. Growing old is mandatory; growing up is optional.

  2. Forget the health food. I need all the preservatives I can get.

  3. When you fall down, you wonder what else you can do while you're down there.

  4. You're getting old when you get the same sensation from a rocking chair that you once got from a roller coaster.

  5. It's frustrating when you know all the answers but nobody bothers to ask you the questions.

  6. Time may be a great healer, but it's a lousy beautician.

  7. Wisdom comes with age, but sometimes age comes alone.

And the Beat Goes On

farting

"I was in a coffee shop recently when I suddenly realized I desperately needed to fart. The music was really loud so I timed my fart with the beat of the music.

"After a couple of songs I started to feel better. I finished my coffee and noticed that everyone was staring at me ... And suddenly I remembered I was listening to my iPod.

"(That's what happens when old people start using technology!)"

Go With the Flow

Pills, no thrills

A man goes to the doctor and tells him that he hasn't been feeling well. The doctor examines him, leaves the room, and comes back with three different bottles of pills.

The doctor says, "Take the green pill with a big glass of water when you get up. Take the blue pill with a big glass of water after lunch. Then just before going to bed, take the red pill with another big glass of water."

Startled to be put on so much medicine, the man stammers, "Jeez, Doc, exactly what's my problem?"

The doctor says, "You're not drinking enough water." -- Unknown

Mr. Tough Guy

teeth

The Millers were shown into the dentist's office, where Mr. Miller made it clear he was in a big hurry.

"No expensive extras, Doctor," he ordered. "No gas or needles or any of that fancy stuff. Just pull the tooth and get it over with."

"I wish more of my patients were as stoic as you," said the dentist admiringly. "Now which tooth is it?"

Mr. Miller turned to his wife. "Show him your tooth, Honey." -- Unknown
