If my body were a car, this is the time I would be thinking about trading it in for a newer model.*
Most of my moving parts could do with being oiled.
I've got bumps and dents and scratches in my finish and my paint job is getting a little dull ..
Itís difficult to start me, once Iím parked.
Sometimes I forget where I am supposed to be going.
My headlights are out of focus and it's especially hard to see things up close
My traction is not as graceful as it once was.
I slip and slide and skid and bump into things even in the best of weather.
My whitewalls are all stained with varicose veins.
It takes me hours to reach my maximum speed.
My fuel rate burns inefficiently.
But that's not the worst of it
Almost every time I sneeze, cough or splutter, either my radiator leaks or
my exhaust backfires
