I love this! Writtenby Andy Rooney - CBS 60 Minutes As I grow in age, I value women who are over 40 mostof all. Here are just a few reasons why: A woman over 40 will not lay next to you in bed and ask, "What are youthinking?" She doesn't care what you think. If a woman over 40 doesn't want to watch thegame, she doesn't sit around whining about it. She does something she wants todo. And, it's usually something more interesting. A woman over 40 knows herself well enough tobe assured in who she is, what she is, what she wants and from whom. Few womenpast the age of 40 give a damn what you might think about her or what she'sdoing. Women over 40 are dignified. They seldom havea screaming match with you at the opera or in the middle of an expensiverestaurant. Of course, if you deserve it, they won't hesitate to shoot you, ifthey think they can get away with it. Older women are generous with praise, oftenundeserved. They know what it's like to be unappreciated. A woman over 40 has the self-assurance tointroduce you to her women friends. A younger woman with a man will oftenignore even her best friend because she doesn't trust the guy with other women. Women get psychic as they age. You never haveto confess your sins to a woman over 40. They always know. A woman over 40 looks good wearing bright redlipstick. This is not true of younger women or drag queens. Once you get past a wrinkle or two, a womanover 40 is far sexier than her younger counterpart. Older women are forthright and honest.They'll tell you right off if you are a jerk if you are acting like one! Youdon't ever have to wonder where you stand with her. Yes, we praise women over 40 for a multitudeof reasons. Unfortunately, it's not reciprocal. For every stunning, smart,well-coifed hot woman of 40+, there is a bald, paunchy relic in yellow pantsmaking a fool of himself with some 18-year-old waitress. Ladies, I apologize. For all those men who say, "Why buy thecow 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 notworth buying an entire pig, just to get a little sausage. ?
