Tribute to Older Women

An over 40 woman will never wake you in the
middle of the night to ask, "What are you
thinking?" She doesn't care what you think.

If an over 40 woman 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 interesting.

An over 40 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 40 give a darn what you might think about her
or what she's doing.

An over 40 woman usually has had her fill of
"meaningful relationships" and "commitment." The last
thing she wants in her life is another dopey, clingy,
whiny, dependent lover.

Over 40 women 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.

Over 40 women are generous with praise, often
undeserved. They know what it's like to be unappreciated.

An over 40 woman 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.

A woman 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 an over 40 woman. They always know.

An over 40 woman looks good wearing bright red lipstick.
This is not true of younger women.

Over 40 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 over 40 women 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.
