Overheard at the supper table

At a social gathering this evening one of the people present who will be 65 in a few day's time was presented with a birthday cake with candles in the shape of a six and a five, and we all sang "Happy birthday" to him.

After thanking us the "birthday boy" said that he was pleased to have reached this milestone, when another person present - who is well into his nineties but very much alert - replied

"Just wait until you're middle aged!"
