JoJoisms: JoJo on Aging

Finishing off Birthday Bash week!  Today is Friday and you know what that means here at Communication FUNdamentals!  It's Friday Funnies! Birthdays always remind us of our age whether it's our own, our kids' or the anniversary of an event.  Eight years ago (almost) we began our family business, Art of Eloquence, and eight years ago I was MUCH younger!  lol  When I think of getting older, I think of humor because it helps the process along! ROFL So today for Friday Funnies, I thought I'd share some of my JoJoisms on aging.  Enjoy! JoJoism#8 Midlife Crisis is having to reconcile gray hair and pimples. JoJoism#9 Getting old’s not so bad.  The cold you feel from hypothyroidism is neutralized by the hot flashes from Menopause. JoJoism#10 Just when your brain is old enough to house some useful information, your mind forgets where it’s stored! JoJoism#12 Old age is when senility neutralizes a lifetime of knowledge. JoJoism#17 Age is just a number. So when I reach 50, I’m going to begin DEaging by celebrating my anti 49th birthday. JoJoism#28 I've noticed that the English language does, indeed, have gender words like they do in Spanish. For example, when a man gets grey hair, they call him DISTINGUISHED. The feminine form of that word is…OLD. JoJoism#29 I’ve also noticed that if your dh is distinguished, chances are very good… JoJoism#32 I don't mind getting older, but aging is a whole 'nuther story! JoJoism#33 Don't think of them as grey hairs; think of them as nature's highlights! JoJoism#40 I don’t need to worry about losing an inch as I age. I come preshrunk. JoJoism#50 In September, I’m going to be a year older.  Of course a minute from now, I’m going to be older too...and so are you young whipper snappers! JoJoism#51 You know you’re getting older when you get a notice from The Scooter Store and AARP in the mail! JoJoism#54 Birthdays are why they invented New Math JoJoism#55 After a while, Old Age is always about 10yrs older than whatever age you are. ''' JoJoisms: Revealing Life's I think of 'em! ''' '''
