Revelations over 50

These are just a few things that I’ve done on the other side of 50 that some may consider weird. When I say weird, I mean weird from the perspective of a younger age group. I remember what it was like when I was 35 and how I thought old people did weird shit. Well, as it turns out, they actually DO weird shit.

I’ll give you some examples below.

  1. They make noises when they do most everything. Ever listen to an old man pee at a urinal next to you at a bar, restaurant, or other venue? They are making noises. You may hear things like “Ahhhh” and “Oh, yeah.”

  2. They don’t give a fuck. When we are younger, we are so self absorbed that we don’t see the rest of the world around us. Older people are over that. They don’t care what you think. They don’t care what you think about anything. Why? That thing you are doing? Living your life at 35. Yeah, they’ve already done that. It is like young mothers giving advice. Well, young mothers let me give you some advice. Shut the fuck up. There is nothing you are going through that someone else already hasn’t. Not one fucking thing. Shut your pie hole. Don’t give a fuck.

  3. Nudity. Here is another area where older people just don’t give a fuck. We laugh at the old guy that walks out to get his paper nude. “He’s forgotten to put his clothes on,” People might say. They would be wrong. That old guy just doesn’t give a fuck if you are offended or not. If they are a nudist, it can be even worse. Try getting them to put clothes on. Go ahead. I dare you.

  4. Driving. I realized a long time ago that I needed to stop driving. I just knew. I have no regrets. I don’t go out much so I don’t care. If I really need to travel somewhere, I have other options. One thing I am not doing. I’m not spending all of the money on it. I’d rather buy a new MacBook Pro.

  5. Sex. I stopped caring about this one a long time ago. If you are worried that I am eyeing you up and down because I want to have sex with you, wow. You couldn’t be more wrong. I’m probably just admiring your beauty. Believe me. It does happen. Some men can look at another woman without the idea of sex ever popping into their minds.

I think these five are a good start. I’ll probably add more later.
