My Top Ten Reasons to Celebrate Turning 65

Just having a little birthday celebration here... releasing a few baloons in honor of this landmark day.

Having watched David Letterman frequently, I thought I would write the top ten reasons to clelebrate turning 65:

10. I am now eligible for senior discounts at Dunkin’ Donuts, McDonald’s, and Kentucky Fried Chicken.

9. I’ve probably been there, done that—I just don’t remember it.

8. Anything I buy from here on probably won’t have time to wear out.

7. I now qualify for Obama’s Cash for Clunkers Program.

6. I could take up smoking and it probably would not have time to hurt me.

5. I no longer have to provide ID in order to by booze at the supermarket or liquor store.

4. I’m still young at heart, though slightly older in other places.

3. I now have an excuse to speed; I have to hurry or I’ll forget where I was going.

2. It will be much harder now for those sexual harassment charges to stick.

AND, the number one reason to celebrate turning 65:

Very good, I should have done that at 50 instead of dreading it. Look for a 51 list coming up too soon.

Hi Eva! Happy birthday whenever it was/is!

My Lord, 65 is hardly old these days. If 40's the new 30 and 30's the new 20 then 65 must be the new 50 or something, no? My mom retired about ten years ago, at sixty, and she was delighted that she got to ride the bus for free and could leave her car at home, meaning she could go eat dinner in town with my sister and drink some wine! Me, I'd be more like you. Dunkin' Donuts you say? Bring it on. :)

Happy Birthday! And many more.
I LOVE your list.

One bit of advice; be thankful for the dis-remembering of "been there, done that". There's less embarrassment that way. =)

Returning the favor from when you dropped by my site from SITS. Happy Birthday and thanks for the laugh, I really needed it today. Super funny list! My Dad retired last year, he says he doesn't have to do anything now that he's retired. Guess he wasn't counting on the honey-do list from my Stepmom!

Have a great day!
