1. Nobody wants to kidnap you. No one is interested in you at that age. You are mostly wrinkly and unattractive, even to petty criminals.
2. No one expects you to run — anywhere. There is nothing as anti-speed as an old 60-year-old with an arching senior back and shaky legs. The beautiful thing is that everyone understands your plight.

3. People call at 9 pm and ask: "Did I wake you?" If you ever fast at anything, it is sleep — you are fast at rest on most days.
4. People do not have to think you are sick. They don't have to think because you look, talk and walk the part.

5. There are no lessons to learn the hard way. At the age of 60, you become life's most acceptable student with a degree from the Hard School of Life.
6. Your new clothes stay new. That's because you have nowhere to go and most likely wear the same thing every day

7. You eat at 4 pm because your bedtime is the next hour and you do not want to upset your bowels
8. You get into heated arguments about pension plans, whether you have one or not. Well, it is in your best interest that you do.

13. Your secrets are safe with your best friends. That's because they are all dead but don't be alarmed. You still have the luxury to relive old memories. Old shaky memories.
