65 Things I Know Now That I’m 65

This month I have a milestone birthday. I’ve renewed my driver’s license, enrolled in Medicare (though I’m deferring my Social Security for as long as I can), and I’m beginning to collect my teacher’s pension.

I’ve been around the block a few times in my sixty-five years on earth. I’ve learned a lot of stuff–the hard way, through trial and error. Let me share my accumulated wisdom with you. Indulge me; I’m old. Maybe you’ll learn from me and avoid making the same mistakes I made.

  1. I don’t know as much as I used to. I’ve forgotten a lot.

What do you think? Do you know more now than you used to? Have any wisdom to share? Comment below. Did you find my list interesting or entertaining? Please lean on the clapping hands. Thanks!
