    it's dinner time.
    Once you've noshed your KFC, you can think about the bint serving it.

    The fact that she smells of stale grease and is wearing a hair net and you are still thinking ***, now that means you are old...



    Or perhaps a fetish...

    Many of your co-workers were born the same year that you got your last promotion.

    your back goes out more than you do.

    The clothes you've put away until they come back in style... come back in style.

    You got cable for the weather channel.

    All of your favourite movies are now re-released in colour.

    You're asleep, but others worry that you're dead.

    You have a party and the neighbors don't even realize it.

    You can live without ***, but not without glasses.

    You quit trying to hold your stomach in, no matter who walks into the room.

    You buy a compass for the dash of your car.

    You are proud of your lawn mower.

    Your best friend is dating someone half their age... And isn't breaking any laws.

    Your arms are almost too short to read the newspaper.

    You sing along with the elevator music.

    You would rather go to work than stay home sick.

    You enjoy hearing about other people's operations.

    You no longer think of speed limits as a challenge.

    People call at 9 pm. And ask, "Did I wake you?"

    I get both because apparently spam can't tell what gender I am! LOL.

    At work I get tons of spam which means I get everything including Acai, Avandia, Bark off, Breast Implants, Credit Check, Cheap Viagra, Debt Solutions, Inks (low cost), Matches or singles (find in your area), See Hot women, Learn Language, Increase your size, government grants, and Yazmin. Plus many many more.

    You qualify for "active adult" housing.

    Your doctor recommends you get a colonoscopy.

    The music you grew up with is playing on the oldies station.

    You get chin hairs (its a woman thing X-( ).

    Young people call you ma'am. (also a woman thing)

    Gravity starts to take over everywhere.

    Your doctor becomes your BFF.

    If you answer the question "Where do you see yourself 5 years from now?" on an an interview, the answer is "retired".

    looking at that really hot woman makes you feel like a dirty old man, because you know you are only a couple months younger than her dad.
    [ my neighbour's daughter is really hot, and I'm literally 2 months younger than her dad. makes me feel old for sure. Thank god the neighbour's sister is just as hot as his daughter. ]

    Approximately a year ago Gordon Lightfoot graced Birmingham with a concert at the old Alabama Theatre. The tickets were reasonably priced and since neither my wife or I had ever seen Gordon live we decided to go. We arrived a little early and found our way to our seats. As we were sitting there waiting for the show to start I was paying attention to everyone else as they filed in. At one point I said to my wife "Everyone here is old". About 30 seconds later she replied "Well they're all about the same age as us!"

    I love Gordon Lightfoot too. The thing to remember is that even though we're all older, and I'm a little older than you, we lived through a true music renaissance. The birth of rock and roll. That is way cool, even if you have a few wrinkles. It was special and still is.

    Personally, I kind of like concerts where people aren't jumping on the chairs, drinking to excess and doing all kinds of drugs. I can actually enjoy the music.

    I'm not planning on getting older. I am ignoring the aches and pains. I refuse to go to bed early. And I'm not admitting to my recent obsession with making blankets for the kids in the family.

    I had to explain to a co-worker who Sgt. Carter was.

    I'm old.

    Oh. And the tweezers work really well on the gray eyebrows. Just this morning at work I noticed one and I pulled it out with my fingers. Along with a few other ones. Quite a few other ones. One gray one looks a sh*t ton better than a bald spot in the middle of your right eyebrow.
