Original author unknown, but I borrowed it from Nancy Hatch
I’m affected by five of those at most, so I’m not doing too badly!
Not badly at all, Nick. May you stay that way for many a long year!
I know from morning tea gossip some of my friends would say yes to many of those items – me, well I’d have to study the list before I made any comment!
I will just say my mother once told me that ladies did not fart – they broke wind 🙂
True, Cathy, and my mother said that ladies don’t sweat; they gently glow! 😆
Bet I have more doctors than you do….I’m a wreck.
Dianne, at this point in time, I have one!
HOW DID YOU GET A HOLD OF MY MEDICAL CHART!?
Al, in these days of the technological world, I have all your secrets!
Good share, GM!
@ Al ~> Wine improves with age. Age improves with wine. Life improves with laughter.
Nancy, I like that advice!
You are in some very elite company!
😆 At least I am good for something!
It happens. Get used to it. But be glad you’re beating it. 😀
There is nobody heading the other way, that is for sure, BHB.
But I’m working on most every one of those symptoms. Keeps me from getting bored.
Good for you, BHB.
Nine symptoms including ‘Z’.
Rusty Lily, Nine out of twenty six is not bad! You are not so rusty afterall! 😉
If you printed a little box by each letter, I could tick most of them … 🙁
Pity they don’t award medals for them, John! 😉
