The older I get, the less interested I am in….

hop scotch

The list is long.  I began compiling it after reading an article in Real Simple magazine by Kristin VanOgtrop that caught my attention.

I agreed with her on most items that no longer appeal to me, and I even added a few.  See if these resonate with you – that is, if you’re growing older.  (And aren’t we all?)

Here goes:

growing_older_privilege_tshirt-p235693823805829228qmkd_400 • junk food – Oops this hasn’t made my list yet.

• show-offs, hotdoggers, and loud mouths

• movies with depressing endings

• mediocre books (If a book doesn’t grab my attention by page two it goes back to the library.)

• trying to turn my hair into something it’s not. (This has not made my list yet either – the number of bottles, tubes and jars in my shower are proof I haven’t accepted my hair in its natural state – whatever that is – and probably never will.)

• people who just want to talk about themselves

• darning socks  (I’m still darning socks, as in “Where’s that darn sock,” I scream while folding the laundry.)

• liars

• big cities with bad architecture

• popular music (anything that has been produced since 1970)

• chain e-mails

• “fat free” anything

• reality shows

*reading about the plights of the “stars”

Can you add others?

  1. Let me get this straight . . . .
    We’re going to be “gifted” with a health care
    plan we are forced to purchase and
    fined if we don’t,
    Which purportedly covers at least
    ten million more people,
    without adding a single new doctor,
    but provides for 16,000 new IRS agents,
    written by a committee whose chairman
    says he doesn’t understand it,
    passed by a Congress that didn’t read it but
    exempted themselves from it,
    and signed by a President who smokes,
    with funding administered by a treasury chief who
    didn’t pay his taxes,
    for which we’ll be taxed for four years before any
    benefits take effect,
    by a government which has
    already bankrupted Social Security and Medicare,
    all to be overseen by a surgeon general
    who is obese,
    and financed by a country that’s broke!!!!!
    ‘What the Hell could
    possibly go wrong?’
