for men only – and it’s based on a true story (uh oh . . .)

Men, do you want to know a sure sign that you are growing old?

Not OLDER—but OLD?

Surer than those emails you received in the last decade that listed all the reasons why being 50 was so good?

Surer than the ones that followed ten years later that listed all the reasons why being 60 was so good?

Sure you do!

It’s when your wife or lover gives you cologne for Christmas or your birthday or Valentine’s Day and it’s NOT some hot new combination of  pheromones and a secret extract of Satyr musk.

Uh uh . . .

Old Spice!

And why did she give it to you?

“It reminds me of my Father when I was young.”

Uh oh . . .

  1. A few weeks ago, a young nurse complained to me that her 30th birthday was “around the corner” and she felt as if she was getting old. Is that a laugh or what. Therefore I must ask what is old?

    When you go to your mailbox and its filled with A.A.R.P. mail, you might be getting old.

    When you have 5 gold teeth and wear bifocals as thick as coca cola bottle bottoms, you might be getting old.

    You over hear someone talking about the latest thing on Yahoo, and you think, Yea, I used to do that too.

    When you go into a McDonalds or Wendys and the first thing they ask you is if you want the senior discount, you might be getting old.

    When you catch yourself glancing at “girly” magazines” just for the articles and interviews, you might be getting old. I will be 66 in April and yes, I think I’m getting old.
