Getting old isn't always so bad. Yeah, there are aches and pains that I didn't used to have. Yes, gray hair and wrinkles aren't real attractive but I have no intentions of entering a beauty contest so who cares.
There's also the joy of paybacks. You know when your kids were younger and they would act up in the stores and make you crazy? Well when you get older you can take them out shopping and do crazy things to embarrass them. To demonstrate what I mean I took Amanda to Walmart last weekend and we played in the Christmas isle
Then I made it up to her by letting her bake me cookies when we got back to my house.
