The Old Guy Oath

Tue Mar 11, 2014 4:54 pm

From "The Fence Post":

Another birthday? Raise your right hand and repeat after me: " I, (your name), being of questionable mind and aging body, do solemnly declare myself an Old Guy. I am hereby officially permitted to scratch any place on my body in public, drive forever with my left blinker on, belch (or worse) loudly on an elevator and not excuse myself, mumble incoherenetly to myself, snore like a chainsaw, wear hats of all kinds, wear overalls everywhere, constantly complain about the present while glorifying the past, complain every day about some body ache or pain, don't let work interfere with play, and fall asleep with absolutely no warning."

I'll be 55 in 2 months and most of those things apply to me. That's pretty bad!

Glad you posted this 2 days before my birthday. It must apply, though I am not yet over da hill. (still seems like a steep grade, but it must be getting near the flat)
