And Then There Was A Little ‘Up-lift’….

The link to the clip I’ve clipped below was sent by a good friend. The clip itself seems like it goes back a little bit and you may well have seen it before. Sorry.

Never mind, watch him again, as during these days of doom and gloom, it definitely has a tad of that ‘feel good factor’ about it. A feeling that’s sadly been in short measure in the news for a while now.

Not full sure how it would grab me to be met by this lot as I tottered off a long haul flight knowing I was being dumped in the hell on earth that’s Heathrow. No, come on, really, it’s not that bad is it? And yes, let’s be honest, this would help….

I mentioned last time old age and eye strain and similar stuff. I then found this tucked away on ol’ Mr. Hard-drive which someone else out there may be able to relate to. Number 14’s my favourite…..

1. Kidnappers are not very interested in you.
2. In a hostage situation you are likely to be released first.
3. People call at 9PM 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 dinner at 4 PM.
9. You can live without sex but not without glasses
10. You enjoy hearing arguments about pension plans.
11. You have a party and the neighbours don't even realize it.
12. You no longer think of speed limits as a challenge.
13. You quit trying to hold your stomach in, no matter who
walks into the room.
14. You sing along with elevator music.
15. Your eyes won't get much worse.
16. No one expects you to run into a burning building.

17. Your investment in health insurance is finally beginning to
pay off.
18. Your joints are a more accurate meteorologist than the
national weather service.
19. Your back goes out more than you do.
20. Your secrets are safe with your friends because they can't
remember them either.
21. Your supply of brain cells is finally down to a manageable
22. You can't remember where you read this list....

As a PS to this post you’ll possibly find this fascinating. Frankly, I found myself flabbergasted. Follow the link in the comments to the post over there at ‘Oh What Now’ as well.
