You know you're getting old when ...Page 6 of 6    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6)
You discover hairs sprouting up where you don't want them to and rogue hairs in normal places get abnormally long.

I'm becoming vigilant about my eyebrows and ears these days!

when you run into the kids you used to babysit at the bar.....

Or when you hear that the ten year old you met briefly once through friends of friends long ago is now up on stage at the tittie bar.

When someone mentioned yesterday that Michael Jackson had died and continued with "and so young, he was only 50".
Thank heavens I only THOUGHT "No he's not that old, he's around my age. Oh, wait, errr, yeah"

I went to the Bob Dylan concert at the river when he was here this past summer. I sat on a blanket on the ground, believe it or not, and was able to hoist myself up when it was all over.

Bob Dylan is OLD. Scratchier voice than ever. But you should have seen the crowd. I refer to them as the geriatric crowd. They were reliving their youth. A lady appearing 80+ years old was swishing her butt right in front of us.

Yep, I'm old, but some are older!

When all your friends look older than you and are either planning weddings for their kids or watching their grand children.........

When someone hits on you and says......."You look great for an older man".....

Just my opinion........

When that balloon boy a few weeks ago was supposidly off flying in what looked like the space ship from the movie Flight of the Navigator. And yet nobody knew what I was talking about, even when I told them that Carrie from Sex in the City was in that movie.

You know you're getting old when.. ...


When you look at your parent(s), and you realize that you have switched "roles". You become the "parent", as they are getting older/slower/with ailments, etc................

Wonderful!

You remember envying the rich kid in junior high as he showed off his brand new TI-2500 pocket calculator-the one that ran for about 15 minutes on 4 AA batteries.

Dood! LOL! I still have (and use at work) my TI-25!!!! I recall going to the store with my dad [1978] to buy a calculator with algebraic functions because my sister's cost him $150, so it was a BIG purchase. Mine, a year later--$25!!

When you 're talking to a cute guy you like and you mention a movie you saw as an adult (that feels like it was just a couple of years ago... for example Titanic) and he says, "I watched that with my mom when I was a kid."

Uh... yeah, that really happened to me!

You tell a joke that was old when you were young and nobody's ever heard it.

I've had younger people ask me who Lorne Greene was,and they don't know that William Shatner was on Star Trek.

The most glaring was this past fall. I was working on a highway paving crew,and we were staying in a camp. The last couple of weeks the company decided to move us into a hotel. The boss tells us that some of the rooms have 2 double beds and some have a double bed and a hide-a-bed,and if there's any cases where a younger guy and an older guy are sharing one of those the older guy was to get the bed. Then he named off some of the "older" guys,and he included me!
