In keeping with my cogitations on Baby Boomers and senior health, I received this “helpful” advice. It definitely made me laugh, so I’ll share it in case you need something to brighten your day:
Most seniors never get enough exercise. In His wisdom, God decreed that seniors become forgetful so they would have to search for their glasses, keys and other things, thus doing more walking. And God looked down and saw that it was good.
Then, God saw there was another need. In His wisdom He made seniors lose coordination so they would drop things, requiring them to bend, reach, and stretch. And God looked down and saw that it was good.
Then God considered the function of bladders and decided seniors would have additional calls of nature, requiring more trips to the bathroom, thus providing more exercise. God looked down and saw that it was good.
So, if you find as you age, you are getting up and down more, remember it’s God’s will. It is all in your best interest even though you may feel like muttering under your breath. 🙂
