What daily thing makes you think you're old? (Edited 10/19/10 01:28PM by SusanVette)
Recently went to the local mall and saw the outfits some of today's young in's are wearing.  I promptly went home, called my 17 year old daughter at her mom's house in another state and told her to change into something less revealing.  She told me she was wearing a sweatshirt and jeans, to which I answered,"Add another sweatshirt or your grounded!"  Am I finally so old I have lost touch or am I off base?

I guess trees show their age with rings around the middle.  So this must mean people lately show theirs with one tattoo for every year they are old?

My Daughter is very picky about her clothes.. partly my fault. She makes sure she is covered and wears baggy clothes.  I wish she would change... maybe just a little....

 My gray hair that started when I was 19. My oldest turning 21 in a few months, my youngest turned 16. Humm oh yeah, the fact that losing 20 lbs now takes more than skipping a &%$$^%#$ meal.

 The only thing is music, I still listen to my cd's only new 1 I've bought in years was the new Eminem,  he's the only rapper i'll listen to unless its old Tupac or Biggy etc. As far as the radio, I now listen to a station they call Classic Rock and Alternative.  Classic? Dam im only 31 !    lol
#9 | 1527 days ago

I cant really say that anything makes me feel old I have 4 grown boys and 2 grandsons and can still pass for being younger than my brother that is younger than me, I still can out work most guys that are half of my age. When you slow down that's what makes you feel old I usually sleep 2 hours a night and that's all I need. The most time I spend sitting still is when I am on the Q and it's back and forth to the coffee pot

A lot of things, but mainly the fact that I'm turning 30 in two months, and my recovery time after baseball and hockey games is slowly taking longer and longer

I am with the keebsologist on this one. The Music tells me I am past my prime. If it ain't on the Classic Rock Station (yes I still listen to the radio) I will probably never hear it.

#15 | 1527 days ago

I ALWAYS FELL ME YOUNG, WHY? BECAUSE THE AGE IS INSIDE YOU AND MY SOUL IS YOUNG, MY BRAINS TOP TEN, MY BODY IS GOOD, MY FACE DONT NEED NOTHING AND BECAUSE I WANT TO DO THINGS, I FEEL MY FREEDOM, I DANCE, I WORK, I MAKE TRIPS, WELL I AM SO GOOD.-

I feel young most of the time.  I have always look younger then my age.  The only difference is the recovery time after sports.  I am a big kid and I get a great feeling out playing the younger kids!  However, over the years sports has taken a little toll on my body.  I’m really feeling it this morning after the last few flag football games the last few days.  I can make the plays on the field like a toe dragging catch in the end zone on Monday, in which case I spun while falling to the ground to land on my back.  I had to make sure the football didn’t hit the ground, so my back still hurts a little from landing flat on it!  Thank the Lord, I don’t have another game until next Thursday!  I need the time to heal my aches and pains!

#34 | 1522 days ago

well in recent events:  I have decided to return to college.  And I suppose my age and experience has taught me to show up early for class.  And I am reminded that I am old(er) than the other students because I see them flying through the parking lots or running to class.

I was actually feelling quite good until I came across this poll

Seriously I was! I've been rehearsing with the kids my son's age for a month an a half now, learning dances and moves I never thought I could do!!  They tell me I'm doing them well, and surprisingly, it is easier and easier every time.  I also am getting out of bed easier every morning, with no repercussions 

So there!! I am NOT old!

 The other day I friended someone on Facebook that I used to babysit. She's a year older than my husband. 

Most days I don't feel old...but that day I did.

Not getting carded at most places....and waking up more often in the middle of the night to take a leak. 
#45 | 1464 days ago

Every morning i get up and take those first few steps, listening to my knees and ankles pop as i walk along. I'm like the tinman at first then i can move fine. Of course the thing that drove home the fact that I'm getting old was the other day when my youngest daughter (12) was sitting next to me and looked at me and said, "ewww, you have hair growing out of your ear."  I thought she was farking with me until I went to the bathroom, now every morning I have one more thing to check before I leave  the house.  This crap keeps up I'll be taking as long as a woman to get ready to go out. 

#46 | 1464 days ago

Oh just when I see the white hair on my head and it reminds me that I must use some black color so everything be in place again.
