Middle Age


"Middle age is when you're sitting at home on a Saturday night and the telephone rings and you hope it isn't for you. "
~Ogden Nash

























































































I don't know about  you guys, but that is SO me!

Happy Friday,
have a great weekend,
and I hope the phone doesn't ring for you.

LOL
Right?
When you're young and the phone rings late at night you get excited.
The older you get the more annoyed you get that someone is daring to call late.

Susan Kaye Quinn said...

LOL!! :) And yes.

Meredith said...

Hahaha, such a great quote! And such a cute duck! :)

Patti said...

That's so funny, because it's true. Just the other day, the phone rang and I said to my husband, I hope its for you. Gone are the days of talking on the phone for hours.

Corey Schwartz said...

Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha! So me, too!

Kelly Polark said...

I love it! And I agree. With my kids busy schedules, it is rare we have a free weekend day and evening. But when we do, I make sure we are HOME!

Even though I do like to get out and do something fun once a month, my very favorite place is my home.

Wendy Ewurum said...

Fabulous post and ever so true.

Deb Salisbury said...

LOL! Too true.

DL Hammons said...

That is me...EVERY NIGHT! Love my peace and quiet. :)

Sarah said...

Yeah ... me, too. At least I know I'm not alone ... in my solitude and avoidance of socializing.

Natalie Aguirre said...

Can so relate to this. Most of are calls are junk so we don't answer. Have a great weekend.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend! :)

Perfect! At age 54 I couldn't have said it better myself ;D

Jemi Fraser said...

Tee hee! That's completely me too! :) have a great weekend!

Michael G-G said...

Ha! Now, if it was agent calling with news, all bets would be off...

Have a great weekend. (I'll try not to call!)

Laura Pauling said...

So true! I love when the phone isn't for me! Anytime actually. :)

Diane said...

I'm there with ya sister! :O)

anthony stemke said...

Funny and true.

Stephanie Thornton said...

Haha! I actually laughed the other day when I realized that whenever the phone rings my instant reaction is, "Who in the world is calling me?"

I guess I get to enjoy the lack of phone calls until my daughter becomes a teenager. That promises to be painful--she already loves talking on the phone and she's only 5!

Hilary Melton-Butcher said...

Hi Shannon .. so absolutely right - when the phone does go .. it's an infringement on my time! I have to adjust quick, quickly ..

Have a good weekend with or without phone calls for you .. cheers Hilary

Anna Staniszewski said...

Ha, I love that! I guess the fact that I can relate to this means I've hit middle age early.

mshatch said...

OMG so funny AND true. Thanks for making me chuckle :)

Jennifer Rumberger said...

I love that quote! :)

Susanne Drazic said...

LOL. Wish I could say I relate, but since each member of my family has their own cell phone, when mine rings I know it is for me. Have a great weekend!

Too true! Hope your weekend has been awesome and phone-free! :)

LOL...so, so true! Thanks for sharing.

That IS so me. Sadly, I've been like that since my early 30s, if not earlier.
