If my body were a car, this is the time I would be

trading it in for a newer model. I've

got bumps and dents and scratches in my finish and

my paint job is getting a little dull ... but that's not the worst of it. 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 side and

skid and bump into things even in the

best of weather. My whitewalls are stained with

varicose veins. It takes me hours to reach my maximum

speed. My fuel rate burns inefficiently.

But here's the worst of it --

Almost every time I sneeze, cough, or sputter .... either my radiator leaks or my

exhaust backfires!
