I haven't posted here for some time, so I figured, "What the heck."
A brief update: Last time I participated here, we were all talking about Colonoscopies. Well, I had mine done, in October of '07. Nothing showing, I'm good for ten years. Interesting procedure. Good drugs they put me on for the procedure, whatever it was. I could have gone over to Harvard Square, and hung out with the kids. I would have fit right in.
My glasses are now no-line Bifocals.
So what do you enjoy about being over 50? My list:
-If I go into Best Buy (I try not to, but they're the only place left I guess) I can walk all over the store and the blue jerseys leave me alone, which is fine by me.
-Cops in their 20's call me "sir". What a hoot!
-I know what this "˘" is. (Uh, is that even used anymore?)
-I can go buy beer at the local store, and not get the "hairy eye" from the store manager. (No really, that happened up until I was about 40. I was last "carded" at age 33, I think.)
-My fixie has brakes on both wheels. The 20-something "cool crowd" doesn't like it? Too bad, I don't have to care.
-A good amount of accrued vacation time, which I can use for riding my fixie. Hey, some people take vacation days to go fishing or play golf. I'll take a ride.
