Thursday Thirteen

13 Quotes from Andy Rooney On Older Women

1. Older Women Andy Rooney says, "As I grow in age, I value older women most of all. Here are just a few reasons why."

2. An older woman will never wake you in the middle of the night to ask, "What are you thinking?" She doesn't care what you think.

3. An older woman knows herself well enough to be assured in who she is, what she is, what she wants and from whom. Few women past the age of 50 give a damn what you might think about her.

4. An older single woman usually has had her fill of "meaningful relationships" and commitment." The last thing she needs in her life is another dopey, clingy, whiny, dependent lover!

5. Older women are dignified. They seldom have a screaming match with you at the opera or in 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.

6. Most older women cook well. They care about cleanliness and are generous with praise, often undeserved.

7. An older woman has the self-assurance to introduce you to her women friends.

9. A younger woman with a man will often ignore even her best friend because she doesn't trust the guy with other women. Older women couldn't care less.

10. Women get psychic as they age. You never have to confess your sins to an older woman. They always know.

11. An older woman looks good wearing bright red lipstick. This is not true of younger women or drag queens.

12. Once you get past a wrinkle or two, an older woman is far sexier than her younger counterpart. Her libido's stronger, her fear of pregnancy gone.

13. Older women are forthright and honest. They'll tell you right off you are a jerk if you are acting like one.

BONUS QUOTE: Yes, we praise older women for a multitude of reasons. Unfortunately, it's not reciprocal. For every stunning, smart, well-coifed babe of 70 there is a bald, paunchy relic in yellow pants making a fool of himself with some 22 year old waitress.

Happy TT!

Is Andy Rooney still alive? I've forgotten. Wasn't he kicked off 60 Minutes? Wonder what his wife would say about him!
