Written by Andy Rooney - CBS 60 Minutes

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 not lay next
to you in bed and 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 interesting. 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 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 if 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 18-year-old waitress. Ladies, I apologize. For all those men
who say, "Why buy the cow 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 not worth buying an entire pig, just to get a little

footnote Mr Rooney..I look TERRIBLE in bright red lipstick and the ones who pulled it off unfortunately were under 40 *giggles*
