Old Age

From an E MAil

     If My Body Were a Car

     This is just too funny - scary how true it is!!


     If my body were a car, this is the time I would be thinking
     about trading it in for a newer model. I've got bumps and dents
     and scratches in my finish and my paint job is getting a little dull ..
     But that's not the worst of it.

     My headlights are out of focus and it's especially hard to see things up close

     My traction is not as graceful as it once was. I slip and slide and skid and bump
      into things even in the best of weather.

     My whitewalls are stained with varicose veins.

     It takes me hours to reach my maximum speed. My fuel rate burns inefficiently.
     But here's the worst of it --

     Almost every time I sneeze, cough or sputter .either my radiator leaks or my            
     exhaust backfires!
