Old People Get All the Best Stuff

Tonight I’ve been watching television.

This is unusual for me, as I do not even subscribe to a cable service — but this weekend we are vacationing with friends and we are super exciting in that we are staying in, listening to the ocean, and watching old television programmes — which means — super entertaining advertisements!

As we’ve been watching these programmes and adverts, I admit I’m envious of the various paraphernalia being advertised at the older generation.

Is it just me, or is all of their stuff way cooler than our stuff? I’m not interested in new video games or new computers. I want the stuff I see advertised on the MeTV channel!

Therefore, Dear Reader:

My Christmas/birthday/anniversary/Valentine’s Day/St. Patrick’s Day/Groundhog Day/Presidents’ Day/Town Meeting Day Vermont (whatever that means)/National Tartan Day gift list is as follows:

I would love to have a bendy bed. These look so super comfy I can’t stand it. I have wanted one ever since I was a little kid.


Can I also please have one of those bathtubs which you can just get into with a gate and not have to step down into. I am already clumsy and I am not even 40, yet. I need all the help I can get. Plus, the people in the advertisements look SO VERY HAPPY!


May I please have an escalator chair? Stairs are just no fun, but one of those could potentially prove to be very entertaining. Also, my dog is afraid of the stairs and this would be very useful in getting her to go to bed.


At the risk of seeming morbid, I would also love to have a hospice chair of it is not too much trouble. I mean no disrespect, and I know they are of so much very good usefulness to those who have neared the end of their time in this world, but they look so comfy! And think of how many fun things you could launch with it.


Again, please k ow I don’t mean any disrespect — it’s just that I feel I have reached a point in life where I am advanced enough to appreciate these amenities.

Thank you for your consideration.

    1. Also – I’m usually only blogging via phone, so I’m sure I’m missing something that is glaringly obvious on a computer screen — but I’m not able to figure out how to follow your blog at the moment. It does look interesting, though!
