Ladies over forty

  • Thought you ladies might get a lick out of this Delbert Written by 60 Minutes Correspondent Andy Rooney (CBS):

    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. 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. 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. Older women are generous with praise, often undeserved. They know what it's like to be unappreciated. Women get psychic as they age. You never have to confess your sins to a woman over 40. Once you get past a wrinkle or two, a woman over 40 is far sexier than her younger counterpart. Older women 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 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.

    For all those men who say, 'Why buy the cow when you can get the milk for free?', here's an update for you. Nowadays 80% of women are against marriage. Why? Because women realize it's not worth buying an entire pig just to get a little sausage!

  • Thank you for posting this! I remember seeing Andy Rooney say this.

    I have also made some age observations of my own:

    Women in their 20's are bright eyed, optimistic about romance, bounce back from pains thinking love is right around the next corner.

    This is the age when we usually get taken advantage of by jerks.

    Women in their 30's are described by men as being bitter and bitchy. I have noticed this myself but it is because we went through our 20's being used by jerks that we become this way.

    Women in their 40's have finally gotten to the point where we realize that we do not need a man to feel complete. We know what we want in a man but it is hard to find that man.

    Anyone feel that I am right? LOL this info is based on me, friends, and acquaintances.
