I really did not need to know that Thirsty (but funny). And I predict this thread will go down the toilet with it.You still need that. Unlike a lot of older guys, I'm lucky I have a bowel movement promptly at 8 every morning. But without an alarm, I don't actually get up until 9.
Funny you mention that , I turned 50 on the 5th of this month, so good advice here so farThrow out all the AARP solications you'll receive in the mail.
And thats a FACT ladies and gentlemen , if your gamefully employed at this point of your life- starting over - so to speak - is a LOT tougher than being 35-40 and starting over.Schedule that colonoscopy.
Don't lose your job; ageism is illegal but that doesn't stop companies from applying it.
Let's see... I will be in about a month. In the past year I have gone from a cane and walker to now walking a couple miles and exercising each day. Of course, it took the intervention of modern medicine (knee and hip) to do so, but I'll take it any way I can get it at this age.
- I'm 56 and I just rode a bicycle 102 miles in one day.
Seriously, more than anything stay active.
So you have a bowel movement at 8, but don't get up until 9??? Are you changing the sheets at 10?You still need that. Unlike a lot of older guys, I'm lucky I have a bowel movement promptly at 8 every morning. But without an alarm, I don't actually get up until 9.
Thanks for that clarification, I was concerned. I figured it must hav been an old joke, but I hadn't heard it before and I LOLed.Just for the record, I don't actually crap myself at 8 and get up at 9! That's an old joke I heard before most of you were born... Get off my lawn!
Once you get to your 50s you realize the truth in the statement that youth is wasted on the young. I think a thrill really exists in building your bucket list and potentially being able to afford it. I took up cycling in my 50's as well as scuba diving and Jetskiing. Next up, I want to jump out of a perfectly good airplane, go in a hot air balloon, hang glide, and, if they still do it, bungee jump.The "Carpe Diem" philosophy is usually one for the young. Seize the day! Don't waste your youth! But it applies to any age. If you've gotten to 50, and there's anything you've wanted to do but never had the chance, don't put it off!
