After the end of the day, you undo the top button of your pants and almost have an orgasm
that's just how we ride.

You know you're getting old, when there are lots of people younger than you.

I'm crap at this game.

You know you're getting old when that really cool band that your parents thought you were crazy to listen to, makes it's debut on the classic rock stations play list.

Psst: It's 'you're'. 
You know you're getting old when you correct someone's grammer on the internet.

Psst: It's 'grammar'.

Psst: the period goes inside the quotes. Also, you should be using full quotes instead of apostrophes. ;D

Also, you know you're getting old when you refer to Internet sensations from not-all-that-long-ago, and most people don't know what the fuck you're talking about.

Example: I intentionally pronounced something wrong in a Jeff K like fashion the other day in public (as my wife and I often do to amuse ourselves), and when I tried to tell the person I was just doing Jeff K, they were like "who the hell is Jeff K?" I'm not THAT old, damnit!

You know you're getting old when all the stuff you liked as a kid (Rainbow Bright, Care Bears, Transformers, etc) are making a comeback because THE REST OF YOUR GENERATION HAS ALREADY STARTED HAVING KIDS!!!!!!!!   :angry: :angry: :angry:

Well chemistry sets and microscopes never go out of fashion.

I always had toys from catalogs like this one

Some people are apparently born old. ;)

Nick isn't nearly as evocatively old-sounding as Beatrice, or Winston. I feel sorry for kids who are saddled with names like that.

This conversation on old reminds me of a former friend of my wife's. She's 38, but she acts and thinks like she's about 90. She calls a soda a "soft drink." She says she feels like having a "cone of ice cream." For 15 years after finishing university she did not own a television (and lived in the basement apartment, which had been done up as a granny pad, of a family that lived 4 blocks from the university). When she finally got a television, it was a 12 inch thing that she put on the bookshelf next to the coffee table, and only used it to watch televised orchestral performances and the like. She knits her own sweaters and cardigans, and wears them even in the dead heat of summer. Last year, she tripped on the sidewalk, and broke her foot in three places. She is, seriously, the oldest person I've ever known. And my grandmother lived to be 93. :P

Yes, I got it, but I wanted to see if it would bug you if I didn't comment on the pun. ;)

I guess I'm getting crotchety in my old age. :)

You know you are old when you start to believe that things can get done in politics.
