Commandments Growing Old

Sixteen Commandments for growing old:

  2. Consider "In Style" to be the clothes that still fit.
  3. You don't need anger management. You need people to stop pissing you off.

  5. The biggest lie you tell yourself is, "I don't need to write that down. I'll remember it."
  6. You have days when your life is just a tent away from a circus.
  7. These days, "on time" is when you get there.
  8. Even duct tape can't fix stupid - but it sure does muffle the sound.
