By Andy Rooney, It applies to me, lol now. Iím over 40. As a woman over 40 I will not lie next to you in bed and ask, ďWhat are you thinking?" because I feel you will tell me if you want me to know. If I don't want to watch the game, I wonít sit around whining about it Iíll do something I want to do. I know who I am, what I want and who I want it from. I maintain dignity and will seldom have a screaming match with you at the opera or in the middle of an expensive restaurant but if you deserve it, I won't hesitate to shoot you, if I think I can get away with it lol. Older women are generous with praise; because we know what it's like to be unappreciated. I have the self-assurance to introduce you to my 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. Iím forthright and honest. Iíll tell you right off if you are a jerk, or acting like one! And, I expect the same honesty from you, because at this point in our lives the games are over the children are grown, and itís our time.
