AFTER BEING MARRIED FOR 46YEARS, I TOOK A CAREFUL LOOK AT MY WIFE ONE DAY AND SAID, “HONEY, 46 YEARS AGO WE HAD A CHEAP APARTMENT, A CHEAP CAR, SLEPT ON A SOFA BED, AND WATCHED A 10-INCH BLACK AND WHITE TV, BUT I GOT TO SLEEP EVERY NIGHT WITH A HOT 18-YEAR-OLD GAL.”
"NOW I HAVE A $500,000.00 HOME, A $45,000.00 CAR, NICE BIG BED, AND PLASMA SCREEN TV, BUT I’M SLEEPING WITH A 65-YEAR-OLD WOMAN. IT SEEMS TO ME THAT YOU’RE NOT HOLDING UP YOUR SIDE OF THINGS."
MY WIFE IS A VERY REASONABLE WOMAN. SHE TOLD ME TO GO OUT AND FIND A HOT 18-YEAR-OLD GAL, AND SHE WOULD MAKE SURE THAT I WOULD ONCE AGAIN BE LIVING IN A CHEAP APARTMENT, DRIVING A CHEAP CAR, SLEEPING ON A SOFA BED, AND WATCHING A 10-INCH BLACK AND WHITE TV..
AREN’T OLDER WOMEN GREAT? THEY REALLY KNOW HOW TO SOLVE YOUR MID-LIFE CRISES.
“We have bigger houses
and smaller familes;
more convenience, but less time.
We have degrees, but less sense;
more knowledge, but less judgement;
more experts, but more problems;
more medicine, but less healthiness.
We have been all the way to
the moon and back, but have trouble
crossing the street to meet
the new neighbour.
We built more computers to hold
more information to produce more
copies than ever,
but have less communication.
We have become long on quantity,
but short on quality.
These are times of fast foods,
and slow disgestions;
tall men and short character;
steep profits, and shallow relationships.
It is the time when there is much in the window,
and little in the room.”—His Holiness The XIVth Dalai Lama (via tailhop)
