Over 40

  ANDY ROONEY on women over 40 =====
  Andy Rooney says, "As I grow in age, I value women who are over 40 most of all.  Here are just a few reasons why:
 A woman over 40 will never wake you in the middle of the night to ask, "What are you thinking?" She doesn't care what you think. If a woman over 40 doesn't want to watch the game, she doesn't sit around whining about it. She does something she wants to do. And it's usually something more
 A woman over 40 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 40 give a damn what you might think about her or what she's doing. Women over 40 are dignified. They seldom have a screaming match with you at the opera or in the middle of 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. Older women are generous with praise, often undeserved.
They know what it's like to be unappreciated. A woman over 40 has the self-assurance to introduce you to her women friends. A younger woman with a man will often ignore even her best friend because she doesn't trust the guy with other women. Women over 40 couldn't care less if you're attracted to her friends because she knows her friends won't betray her. Women get psychic as they age. You never have to confess your sins to a woman over 40. They always know. A woman over 40 looks good wearing bright red lipstick. This is not true of younger women or drag queens. Once you get past a wrinkle or two, a woman over 40 is far sexier than her younger counterpart.
 Older women are forthright and honest. They'll tell you right off you are a jerk if you are acting like one. You don't ever have to wonder where you stand with her. Yes, we praise women over 40 for a multitude of reasons.
 Unfortunately, it's not reciprocal. For every stunning, smart,well-coifed hot woman of 40+, there is a bald, paunchy relic in yellow pants making a fool of himself with some 22-year-old waitress.               Ladies, I apologize. ANDY ROONEY


  1. Believe me,darling,I don't wake a man in the middle of the night to ask what he's thinking. Nor will I interupt his sporting events or bug him for going to a strip club.  Lol. You know it's so strange. I had guy's tell me I am the ideal girlfriend and yet I have the worst luck with men.  Let's just say it. It's not me. It's them. lol.

  2. WoW..Thanx, I'm looking forward to 40! :O)
    Thank You for the nice comment you left in my Journal. I'd love to live on a farm and have horses.

  3. GREAT ENTRY !!!! I'm pretty close to 40 & I can appreciate a lot of these character traits. But I don't think I will EVER look good in red lipstick lol.

  4. Thats awesome ! Not ever really been a fan of Rooney but that was very insightful........

  5. This is a really ace piece about older women. Being almost 60 I whole-heartedly agree!! Who is Andy Rooney? I'm a Brit not familiar with this guy but I'd like to meet him!


    Since I just turned 40 last Thursday... I REALLY needed this!!!

    Love the journal!
