Default Help: Fun Things To Do For Old People

Need some ideas... I'm not old yet(soon to be 57) and see there are lots of old farts on here and sure they got plenty of real good ideas.

Please use large fonts cause some may have a tough time seeing your answers.

Thanks!

I got nothing. I am only 56.

ATGATT because walking away in disgust is better than riding away in an ambulance.

Never get to busy making a living that you forget to make a life.

Well! I read today on the internet(AARP) about things you are not supposed to do after 50 and it ticked me off.

You know those guys that run jumping from roof to roof, using their hands to jump over stuff and bounce off the side of walls while somersaulting? Well! we can't do that anymore.

Doing jello-shots. Wha the is that anyway?

Crowd surfing. Shoot! That really sucks...

Talking about how great my kids are due to my excellent parenting skills and so on.

Your not supposed to do any of this... and this came from the AARP site. Glad I'm not a member!

AARP sold us oldsters out to Obamacare and that pissed a lot of us off bigtime. They are on my $h1t list fer sure.

I keep all my microfiber towels in a bag so dust doesn't settle in them and scratch the paint when I polish it

Well I'm just a "tweener" at the young age of 51 (I think. Sometimes I forget. What year is this?).

Just joined AARP to get discounted things. Found out there are better discounts with AAA. Well, at least I get another magazine to take to "the reading room"!

Am I the only one that keeps Jell-O shots in their fridge at all times?

When you start saying "I'm not old yet", you usually are. And if anyone says you "X years young", you are DAMN SURE REALLY OLD!

Thanks for reminding me of that one too. People that are old, always try to say they are a "_____ year old on the inside" or with "experience".

Good call RICZ!
