Yet another disastrous aspect of the ageing process has manifested itself.

I can no longer manage a large pizza at one sitting.

I can feel my toes gradually turning up.

Perks of being over 50

(this may apply to a few of us, the rest can chuckle away, their turn is coming....)

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 PM 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 supper at 4 PM

9. You can live without sex but not your glasses.

10. You get into heated arguments about pension plans.

11. You no longer think of speed limits as a challenge.

12. You quit trying to hold your stomach in no matter who walks into the room.

13. You sing along with elevator music.

14. Your eyes won't get much worse.

15. Your investment in health insurance is finally beginning to payoff.

16. Your joints are more accurate meteorologists than the national weather service.

17. Your secrets are safe with your friends because they can't remember them either.

18. Your supply of brain cells are finally down to manageable size.

19. You can't remember who sent you this list.

And you notice these are all in Big Print for your convenience.

Are you seriously suggesting that sex is a acceptable alternative to pizza?

Try with a litre of San Miguel, helps it go down a treat, might add a few potato wedges and chicken wings for variety as well.

They might make me smile, but I can't see some of them as perks.
