    We're all those who either aren't that busy with life (like, real life) or ignore the fact that we've got better things to do than waste our time on the internet. :D

    I tend to fall asleep for months at a time in the corner over there [points].

    Not usually a problem. But occasionally when I come 'round, I find that some bratty kid has tied my shoelaces together.

    I resent being called a "bratty kid." I'm old enough to be a grandfather.

    Fortunately for me my kids are either too young to tie my shoelaces together or old enough to know I will kill them if they do that.

    Maybe I should have posted this in the young folks home! In case you haven't yet heard it somewhere.... here's proof that us old folks deserve some respect:


    The first time I heard this was on the radio when I was driving... I had to pull over because I was laughing so hard that I couldn't drive!

    Another good benefit to being old... you might have kids and sometimes they say the cutest things. My youngest informed me that she was having trouble yawning because she had a bit of a cough. She then proceeded to tell me (quite seriously) that "coughs pull the yawns back in". :)
    (I think she has it a little backwards but the observation made me smile anyway!)

    Hi Sorcha, I'm SJ. I don't think we've met before...nice to "meet" you!

    yeah... you sure don't want to rush into that until you're ready for it! They are cute, and sometimes that's the only thing that saves them from certain annihilation! In spite of the occasional headaches, they're totally worth it though. :)

    Okay, technically I'm (just barely) old enough to be a great-grandfather, although someone would probably have done jail time in the process.
