Your investment in health insurance is finally beginning to pay off!
Kidnappers are not very interested in you.
It's harder and harder for sexual harassment charges to stick.
If you've never smoked, you can start now and it won't have time to hurt you.
Your secrets are safe with your friends because they can't remember them, either!!
Your eyes won't get much worse.
Things you buy now don't have time to wear out.
And, one of the best advantages of being old is:

"I've seen it all, done it all, heard it all. I just can't remember it all!"

Remembering the good times from childhood to now and the funny things that happened to you ie. here is  a little story and it begins on my 7th birthday. I got a pair of roller skates from my parents and I decided to take them to school. I had planned  to not go to school but to go up to my Gran's house nearby. As it was nearly summer I was working in her garden and had built a wall of dirt which I could hide behind. I waited till she went to the shops and pulled out my shiny roller skates and put them on. I loved skating up and down the street until unknown to me a hand reached out and grabbed my  hair  and it was my mother who started to hit me and my Gran stood there laughing. I was then  frog marched to the school and my Mother told the teacher what I had done and she in turn gave me the belt (sore) as I was bad. My Gran had saw me heading up to the back of her garden and when she met my mother in the village she told her where I was. The skates were taken off me for a long time and I never did it again or did I?. Hope you all get the story and its very true because I was there. he he he .

I find now that when I misbehave, am outrageous, raucous or loud, people find it amusing, even admirable! 

If I did those things when I was young it was normally followed by some sort of castigation or threats of incarceration LOL.
