You know you are too old to Trick or Treat when:

10. You keep knocking on your own front door.

9. You remove your false teeth to change your appearance.


8. You ask for soft high fiber candy only.

7. When someone drops a candy bar in your bag,
and you lose your balance and fall over.

6. People say: 'Great Boris Karloff Mask,'
And you're not wearing a mask.

5. When the door opens you yell, 'Trick or...'
And you can't remember the rest.

4. By the end of the night,
you have a bag full of restraining orders.

3. You have to carefully choose a costume that doesn't dislodge your hairpiece.

2. You're the only Power Ranger in the
neighborhood with a walker.

And the number one reason Seniors should not go
Trick Or Treating...
*

1. You keep having to go home to pee.

Ok, I'm 62, won't go Trick or Treating, but my wife did buy me a plastic Darth Vader mask that talks (Vader's voice/James Earl Jones). I told her to wrap it up for me for Christmas. I will display it on a wall in our apt along with some other Star Wars things I have. I'm a big Star Wars fan and have the Trilogy DVD's. Went to a John Williams concert put on by a local Symphany and people wearing Star Wars attire were there. It was super, super cool.

But, aside from this, some of those "joking/funny" statements could actually be very true........to the younger generation, that is!

Not with Early Retirement it's not! I had to take this and a friend and my brother didn't want to waitr for regular retirement either. Only thing is, they are both retired from large companies.

Maybe it's because we're in Florida but I find a lot more boomers in better shape than the prior generation - they seem more concerned with diet and they exercise more.

They are pretty funny to me. Of course I am pretty young at just 62, busy collecting social security and a pension. My wife at 60 would definity have to got back to pee. And even at 62, I still have those moments when i can't remember anything.

I think those apply more to my grandmother (94) than my parents (62 & 64) - but they're still pretty darned funny!
