Ten Signs You Are Too Old For Halloween

Still here cleaning and sorting. I am amazed at the amass of paper I have collected...especially since I messed up my home printer and use the one at work. Funny, you would think it would be the opposite, but here is what happens. When I am surfing on the weekends, I come across something I would like to keep, but since I don't have a home printer, I email it to myself at work; then, I get to work and have tons of messages to I print everything so I can delete and make the inbox more manageable, but in the meantime some of things that seemed so important never get looked at again....instead ending up in a huge stack of papers. Eventually, the time comes to sort through the stack, and there it is...the item that had been so important to me at the time. So, now I am at that sorting stage and coming across all kinds of stuff; hence, the following. Enjoy.

You are too old for Halloween when:
1. You get winded from knocking on the door.
2. You have to have someone chew the candy for you.
3. You ask for high fiber candy.
4. When someone drops a candy bar in your bag, you lose your balance and fall over.
5. When the door opens you yell, "Trick or...." and forget the rest.
6. By the end of the night you have a bag full of restraining orders.
7. You have to carefully choose a costume that won't dislodge your hair piece.
8. You are the only Power Ranger in the neighborhood with a walker.
9. You avoid going to houses where your ex-spouses live.
10. People say, "Great Keith Richards mask!" and you are not wearing a mask.


  1. LOL! Those are great! Although some of them are a bit too close to home for comfort, if you know what I mean!

  2. I do know what you mean...sad to say. Not as agile as I used to be.

  3. These gave me a chuckle this morning.. thanks for sharing. And about the boxes of papers, know just what you mean. I feel so guilty when I end up with this piles of papers of stuff I've printed off and then decide they were not important after all. And then those pages that practically blank - you know what I mean. The article says it has 4 pages and yet page four is just line or two...
