So here you are... happily living your life... then there are times when it hits you. You say something and you realize you are not as young as you used to be. You think to yourself: "When did this happen?! I hate getting old"



Okay, not THAT old lol ... but you know... definitely not in your teens anymore lol

So, in this thread, talk about some incidents that happened that made you realize you are not a young lad anymore.


*************

Well, for me it was a time I was chatting with some teenagers from church and they were discussing some things they did in school and then I used the phrase: "Well... back in MY day....." Huh? grinsmiley

Yep, it was a sign... that I am getting up there in my years...

Good topic! Lately I've noticed that salesgirls have begun calling me "honey" and "sweetie," like they do with non-threatening older men. I hate that. I want to threaten. Ranting

One of the boys at my church came up to me a little while back, and he told me that he had "bombed" his math test. So I started to tell him how sorry I was to hear that, and he started laughing good-naturedly and told me "No, no - that's a good thing!" Laughing Well it sure wasn't when I was in school!

Sometimes life throws you under the bus. You gotta hold on for dear life. Don't waste one single day.

Laughing Way back in the 1990s, when dinosaurs thundered across the plains.

When my cousin Kathie was about 14, she was at a laundromat and she picked up a book that was laying there. A little girl of about 8 or 9 came up to her and said, "Lady, that's my book!" Poor Kathie was traumatized. "She called me lady! I'm old!" Laughing

At 14?!?! Whoa. Now I really feel ancient!

Well, the idea that I am getting old crossed my mind tonight actually. I HAD to get groceries after an exhausting day, and as I'm shuffling through the grocery store at about an hour in, I realized that I must resemble and old lady! I seriously need to start working out!

It really hit me I was getting older though last fall, when my son started college. That'll do it to anybody I suppose! Whistle

Well, they always said I was born at 40 (waits for Rob to think of a good joke) so I must always have been old.

It hit me at church the other day when I began complaining about the lyrics of current songs. Here I am a fan of Cheap Trick and KISS, yet some of today's lyrics seem so nasty and vulgar to me.

Oh, and there's always that conversation when I try to explain to my girls that cell phones and the Internet didn't exist when I was a kid and they look at me like I have sprouted an extra head and five arms. Yep, I feel old then

Thumbsup "Old" has nothing to do with age, for me. It's all about attitude. I've met people who are 23 and are much more of an "old person" than some of my friends who are in their 80s.

I hope you have a marvelous time, Rhonda!

I hear you Cheryl! Computers/internet are a biggie with my kids---they can't fathom us not having had them! And I actually kept my old walkman. (why I have no idea Whistle )...they find that pretty hilarious. Hey, I LOVED that thing! Wink What really makes me feel old is when I go into an antique store, and see some of the stuff I used to have, being sold as 'antiques', LOL!

Me too Savannah....my dad is one of them---he works out daily on his treadmill, spends lots of time with his church friends, and has a great attitude about aging. My mom on the other hand, although in great shape, seems to be hindered sometimes by the 'number'. She knows where HER parents were at her age, and that makes her feel old. But I keep telling her....70 is the new 60! And 40 is the new 30, ahem. batEyes At least, that's what I tell myself....right Cheryl? Wink

Rhonda, have a GREAT time! I'm so glad you have found a new zest for life! happy1

Wow. When I can think of things that make me feel really old.

1. 7 Up came out when I was a kid. It was the un-cola, lol.
2. The tabs on soda and beer cans pulled all the way off



3. These were the bottle tops for soda bottles with cork in the top (there were no plastic bottles) and had to be removed with a bottle opener, no twist-off, lol.


4. Only lap belts in cars.

5. Silver Christmas tress with rotating color light were all the rage, lol.





Spring is finally here, the lovely pink blooms on the "spray" tree outside my window are gone leaving a beautiful willow.

Oh man, a thread after my own heart.

When I was 17, I could run a mile in 4minutes and 15 seconds.

Now I get winded going to the mail box.

I used to be one skinny scarecrow.

Now I can barely button my britches.

I used to have a nice set of teeth.

Now they're a disaster area.


I could go on and on...lol

For my husband, it was when his college students started making comments like, "My dad has a shirt just like that."
