You’re only as old as you feel. However, growing old is mandatory; growing up, on the other hand, is optional. Not everyone is excited about getting old, but if you have a sense of humor about it, growing older can be pretty funny.
You know you’re getting older when the clothes you’ve put away are finally getting back in style. Or, when you find yourself complaining about pain in your back more than ever. Or, when you are referring to your knees as the “good and bad” ones instead of the right one and the left one. An all-nighter means not getting up to pee and everytime you pass a bathroom you think “I may as well pee while I am here”. You don’t get that excited about your birthdays anymore, you often forget where you parked your car and the gray-haired lady helping you find it is your wife.
On the bright sight you learned about self-love, acceptance and the fact that not everyone is going to like you, and that’s perfectly fine. You enjoy life more than ever, and you can’t wait for Holidays such as Christmas to buy gifts for all your nephews and nieces and spend some quality time together.
Old is nohting but a number, and great reason to make some jokes at your own expense. And it’s funny cuz it’s true. Remember being old doesn’t have to equal being grumpy, gloomy and unhappy. Just sit back relax and enjoy these hilarious tweets about getting old compiled by Bored Panda.
