Perks (advantages) of being over 60 and heading towards 70!

Again, I have no idea about who the author if the text below is. It's a continuation of  last week's text.

1.  Kidnappers are not very interested in you.

2.  In a hostage situation you are likely to be released first.

3.  No one expects you to run--anywhere.

4.  People call at 9 PM and ask, "Did I wake you?"

5.  People no longer view you as a hypochondriac.

6.  There is nothing left to learn the hard way.

7.  Things you buy now won't wear out.

8.  You can eat supper at 5 PM.

9.  You can live without sex but not without your glasses.

10.  You get into heated arguments about pension plans.

11.  You no longer think of speed limits as a challenge.

12.  You quit trying to hold your stomach in no matter who walks into the room.

13.  You sing along with elevator music.

14.  Your eyes won't get much worse.

15.  Your investment in health insurance is finally beginning to pay off.

16.  Your joints are more accurate meteorologists than the national weather service.

17.  Your secrets are safe with your friends because they can't remember them either.

18.  Your supply of brain cells is finally down to manageable size.

Have an excellent day, and let's enjoy the rest of our lives!
