women over 40 or getting close

In case you missed it on 60 minutes, this is what Andy Rooney thinks of women over 40.

As I grow in age, I value women over 40 most of all. Here are just a few reasons why:

A woman over 40 will never wake you in the middle of the night 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 more interesting.

Women over 40 are dignified. They seldom have a screaming mat ch 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. Women get psychic as they age. You never have to confess your sins to a woman over 40.

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 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-coiffed, h ot woman over 40, there is a bald, paunchy relic in yellow pants making a fool of himself with some 22-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 sausage!

Andy Rooney is a really smart guy!

I am only 34, and I love this! The older I get, the more comfortable I am in my own skin; I just wish that skin were less wrinkly and saggy :)

I am nowhere near 40 but that was really good! I'm going to copy that for my mom!

OMG - I love this! Of course, I am not near 40 yet. But there is something to be said about knowing who you are and being okay with that.

I echo Heather's sentiments: I am far more comfortable in my skin than I was in my younger years.
