The Joy of Being over 40

One of the things I am very thankful for is being over 40. It’s wonderful and I am having a blast. I saw this posted on Facebook and had to share. So, to all the women over 40, enjoy!

CBS commentator, Andy Rooney on women over 40: “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. (We really don’t)

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. (If my boyfriend wants to watch the game, he should. I’ll be doing something with my best girlfriends, thankyouverymuch.)

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. (This is very true, as an ex found out…and the bullet still has his name on it)

Older women are generous with praise, often undeserved. They know what it’s like to be unappreciated. (Yes we do. A good man deserves a lot of praise. And I make sure my wonderful boyfriend knows he is treasured every day.)

Women get psychic as they age. You never have to confess your sins to a woman over 40. (We are petty amazing that way. So don’t even try the lies with us. Better to just get your things and leave quietly…)

Once you get past a wrinkle or two, a woman over 40 is far sexier than her younger counterpart. (We know what to do and how to do it.) 

women over 40 are forthright and honest. They’ll tell you right off if you are a jerk if you are acting like one. You don’t ever have to wonder where you stand with her. (Yes we are. I never had a problem telling someone if they were  jerk before, but that gets even more so when you are over 40. We just don’t have the time or patience to be bothered with it. It’s a beautiful thing.)

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.
