200 Sure-Fire, Lead-Pipe-Cinch, No-Question-About-It Ways to Tell if… You Might Be Getting Old!
In 2007 I launched a new website aimed at seniors and those who love them, Senior Moments Online. One of the regular site features is “The Lighter Side”, and as the title suggests, it is there that we focus on some of the more humorous aspects of being a senior. (And trust me, there are quite a few!) So, in an early attempt to generate material for “The Lighter Side”, my wife and I began batting around some “You Might be Getting Old If . . .” one-liners, à la Foxworthy. We found it great fun (we’re easily entertained these days!), and 200 of those one-liners we considered to be “keepers” are included in this book. Enjoy! – Michael Garee
