Humor or just sad reality of getting old?
« on: March 13, 2009, 05:35:22 PM »
When someone says "Hey, did you hear, Mandy Moore got engaged?" There are a couple responses....

Twenty year old..."Dang, now I have to change out my poster"  :evil:

Forty year old...."Who's Cares?"   :?

Sixty year old... "Who's that?"    :idunno:

Eighty year old..."What did you say?"    :brian:

19 when I wake up, 132 by the end of the day.   :-P

So Mandy's getting married. So what? She says it won't stop our rendezvous.   :-D

Jerry,
After Googling and asking my wife, I would say yes. The whole "Mandy got engaged" was off the cover a magazine, and I honestly knew little about her and just thought up the original post. What she is famous for, I have no clue.

Yeah, right Mike. You know you're a fan, just admit it! Maybe not the same magnitude as Jerry but a fan nonetheless.

Hey after seeing her picture, I'm a fan too! Just kidding, she's a little too young. She is a striking young thing though isn't she now?

Out of curiosity...how old do you think I am?

Well, Bjorn, your posts are full of information that take up many, many pages. You have to be at least 70. My guess would be 90, 91?

Now we know JP is a young man. Only a young guy would say such foolish things.  :-D

I may have been on this earth 55 years come next month but I'm still in my teens.

Excuse me while I go take my pills.  

Giddy up :deadhorse:

Bjorn, when you're old it takes a while to process things (that's what Brian says) when you're done, come on back in.
