Men's Monday Meme - Who me? Get old? Not me!
Mood:  a-ok
Topic: Men's Monday Meme

If you have been reading my blog at all, you know that I am a member of TOS Homeschool Crew, a group of homeschool bloggers that reviews homeschool products on our blogs. We have our own forum where we can chat with one another, ask questions, give prayer requests, etc. One of the topics recently has been about old age. Some of the ladies (I'm the only male Smile) have been talking about getting old. Since I am one of the oldest ones in the group, I was very interested in there discussion. Finally, I decided to respond. Here is my response:
Me? Falling apart? Never! ~ Oops. My bifocals just fell off. There we go...back to the message at hand.

Now come on ladies! I am almost the oldest one here and there is nothing wrong with me at all. ~ Hold on a minute..."What's that Sarah? My hearing aid is buzzing again? Sorry."

I mean, come on, I'll never grow old. ~ Just a second while I switch positions...my back is killing me.

I'm glad that we are going to have new bodies in Heaven. Some folks sure need them...not me, though, you don't know how many people compliment me on my good... ~ Oh, I'm getting tired of this phone ringing all day long...or maybe it's that blasted ringing in my head...I never can tell the difference...hold on a minute..."Hello?" *Pause* "No I was not the person who sent my picture in to the rat poison company!" *Pause* "No you may not use it in your experimental study on nonpoisonous ways to kill rodents! Goodbye!" 

I'm telling you. The nerve of some people. ~ Now, where was I? I forgot. Sarah says I'd forget my head if it wasn't attached.  ~ Oh yeah. Old age. Like I said. I'll never grow old.

Gotta go ladies. I'll talk to you later. Time to take my supplements and meds.

iTm ...I mean Tim... Blasted fingers. Don't know why they aren't typing like they used to?!

Despite my funny response, the whole conversation got me to thinking about how I really feel about getting old. I mean, I'm almost 50 years old, and, believe it or not, the AARP has been sending me mail asking me to join. I got one just today. A trial membership card that they wanted me to activate. I wanted to yell at the letter..."I'm only 49! Don't you have to be 55 or 60 before you can become a member of the AARP?" I'm not really sure how I feel about it. Which leads me to my new Men's Monday Meme question.

How do you feel about getting old? Do you relish it? Hate the thought? Are you somewhat scared? Give me your thoughts.

Here are the rules:

  1. This is a man's meme, so the answers must be the answers from a man. Either the man can answer on his blog, or a wife can interview her husband for her blog. However, if the wife puts it on her blog, she must stay true to what her husband said.
  2. You are encouraged to put one of the Men's Monday Meme buttons found to the left on your blog. Just copy the code below the button of your choice. The more folks who link, the more readers you may have to visit your blog.
  3. You may answer the question any time during the week up through next Monday. After you answer the question, add the address to your post to the Mr.Linky below. If you could, please only add the direct link to the post to make it easier for readers to find the entry.
  4. My answer along with a new question will be posted next Monday. The new Mr. Linky will be added at midnight Monday night.

And here's the new Mr. Linky:

LMBO  This is really funny because my husband is old!  I can say that because he is older than me, therefore, he is old.  Don't you love my rule?  He thinks and often acts 16, so I really want to know how he answers THIS question.
