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.

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.   

19.. You can't remember who sent you this list.  

And you notice these are all in Big Print for your convenience. 


And Never, under any circumstances, take a sleeping pill and a laxative
on the same night.
