It just keeps getting better, doesn’t it?

Just when I thought being in my 30s was good, my friend sends me this email:-

In case you missed it on 60 Minutes, this is what Andy Rooney thinks about women over 40 …

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 an expensive 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 that 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 men 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 a really smart guy!

Now I’m really looking forward to my 40s and here’s to the over 40 women in my life who has been a constant inspiration. A big thank you to my Mummy and my Aunts for making being 40 and then some, the next best thing to look forward to.

From left to right, my Dua Emm and next is my Mummy, yes, she doesn’t look like she can have a 32 year old daughter, right? Then my Coco and in the right is my Gee Emm. Ok, I can’t really spell in Teochew but you get the idea.

It’s my favourite picture of them.
