40 PLUS

So as my impending 40th birthday approaches (still a bit to go but I'm anxious about the b-i-g 4-0), I read this excerpt by Andy Rooney and loved it!!

BY ANDY ROONEY:

"As I grow in age, I value women over 40 most of all.. Here are
just a few reasons why:

A woman over 40 will never wake you in the middle of the night
and ask, 'What are you thinking?' She doesn't care what you think. If a
woman over 40 doesn't want to watch the game, she doesn't sit around
whining about it. She does something she wants to do, and it's usually
more interesting. Women over 40 are dignified. They seldom have a
screaming match with you at the opera or in the middle of an expensive
restaurant. Of course, if you deserve it, they won't hesitate to shoot
you if they think they can get away with it. Older women are generous
with praise, often undeserved. They know what it's like to be
unappreciated. Women get psychic as they age. You never have to confess
your sins to a woman over 40. Once you get past a wrinkle or two, a
woman over 40 is far sexier than her younger counterpart. Older women
are forthright and honest. They'll tell you right off that you are a
jerk if you are acting like one. You don't ever have to wonder where you
stand with her. Yes, we praise women over 40 for a multitude of
reasons. Unfortunately, it's not reciprocal. For every stunning, smart,
well-coiffed, hot woman over 40, there is a bald, paunchy relic in
yellow pants making a fool of himself with some 22-year old waitress.
Ladies, I apologize. For all those men who say, 'Why buy the cow when
you can get the milk for free?', here's an update for you.

Nowadays 80% of women are against marriage. Why? Because women
realize it's not worth buying an entire pig just to get a little sausage!"
