Seenager!

SENIOR_CITIZENS_SP_2005052g

I received this in a group mail to my classmates from a classmate who, as you can see, is a seenager.

I am one of the people that he hangs around with and I am sure that most of my regular readers can find someone like him or may be they already are like him.

” I am a Seenager (Senior teenager).  I have everything that I wanted as a teenager, only 60 years later. I don’t have to go to school or work. I get an allowance every month. I have my own pad. I don’t have a curfew. I have a driver’s  licence and my own car. I have an ID that gets me into bars and the wine store.  I like the wine store best. The people I hang around with are not scared of getting pregnant, they aren’t scared of anything, they have been blessed to live this long… why be scared? And I don’t have acne.

Life is Good! Also, you will feel much more intelligent after reading this, if you are a Seenager.

Brains of older people are slow because they know so much.  People do not decline mentally with age, it just takes them longer to recall facts because they have more information in their brains, scientists believe.  This also makes you hard of hearing as it puts pressure onyour inner ear.  Much like a computer struggles as the hard drive gets full, so too, do humans take longer to access information when their brains are full. Researchers say this slowing down process is not the same as cognitive decline.  The human brain works slower in old age, said Dr. Michael Ramscar, but only because we have stored more information over time.  The brains of older people do not get weak.  On the contrary, they simply know more. Also, older people often go to another room to get something and when they get there, they stand there wondering what they came for.  It is not a memory problem; it is nature’s way of making older people do more exercise. SO THERE!!

I have more friends I should send this to, but right now I can’t remember their names. So, please forward this to your friends; they may be my friends, too.  (Please also share with your spouse.)

    This once more proves my daughter’s axiom, “It’s all in the spin”. Love looking at everything as a positive.

    I believe this falls under the heading “Everyone grows old but noteveryone grows up”.

  4. 😀 Yay, Seenagers!

  5. PS In spite of dealing with the downside of aging, I’d rather be a seenager than a teenager. 🙂

  10. Sniff; I want to be a seenager now! Oh well, I’ll wait my turn and hopefully pad my bank account so I can hang out and have fun. 🙂 Then again, I don’t have many friends so I’ll just have to hang by myself…
