If my body were a car, this is the time I would be thinking of trading it in for a new model.

I've got bumps and dents and scratches in my finish and the 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 slide and skid and bump into things even in the
best 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.

I guess the d#*m thing is getting too old and worn out !!!!!!

Would that we could trade it in for a new model (a la The Stepford Wives)!
We may have to be satisfied with complete restorations like classic cars.

Liposuction... Knee replacement... Hair Transplant... Lasik eye surgery...
