I don’t consider myself to be an old man, but I do know that I’m not 18 years old anymore. When you hit the big 30 you start to realize that some of the joints in your body don’t work like they used to. Bending over to pick up that R5 coin that you dropped on the floor or getting out of bed in the morning starts to get more difficult when you are over 30 though, believe me. The key to keep your joints functioning like they should seems to be exercise and healthy eating, but I’m not buying into that theory, maybe I should reconsider it.
Getting old and slow doesn’t really mean that you get dumber though (unless you’ve used the equivalent of recreational drugs that Keith Richards has snorted or smoked in his lifetime in less than 10 years). You tend to learn from your mistakes, learn how to pace yourself when you’re going on a pub crawl and you get more and more nostalgic as you age. You also start to realize that you kinda know what Bob Dylan was talking about it in his song “The Times They’re Changing”. Argue it as you may, the fact remains that you get wiser and smarter when you get older. There’s no doubt about that.
I saw this joke on the The Meta Picture earlier tonight and I thought that I’d share this with you. I’m pretty sure that this will cheer you up if you’ve had a really crappy Monday.
So, what kind of an old man are you? A clever one or a stupid one? Leave a comment and let me know! Feedback is appreciated and welcome here.
It’s been a while since I have featured a joke on Running Wolf’s Rant, but I’m pretty sure that I’ll be posting more of these in the future, so watch this space for updates in the Humor category. Feel free to share this on Facebook or Twitter if you’ve had a good laugh. Remember: Sharing is Caring.
