Everyone – Appreciate This!!

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 a 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 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.

Andy Rooney is one smart guy!

Pass this on to your fun, fabulous, fancy, female friends over 40 – or those male friends who might appreciate it too.

    Beautifully said! I couldn’t agree with you more. I just entered the “40” club, and I am celebrating and loving every minute of it.

    Hello…I love it. Being just turned 50…I do appreciate a little applause for us mature women.
    Although women at 40-50 these days are so fit and not so mature looking that I think the age group should be bumped up just a bit on this poem 🙂
    Men will be men and that is not an excuse…that is a inherited fact….on the other hand…not all men venture to boost their own self-esteem with younger women…that is a select few.

    In any case I did enjoy the truisms in this poem. WE do get to a point in our lives where we choose our battles in a more mature fashion.

    Have a very positive day:)
