You Know You Are Getting Old When:

OldTypeYes, I have found a few ways to know that old age is creeping up on you. These are from my own book of ways to tell you are getting old.  I do not mind getting old or looking older, but I am a little worried that I am starting to smell older.  I now smell like Ben-Gay, foot spray and nail fungi remover.  Oh Boy!!!!

BigDadGib’s list of ten “How to know you are getting old”.

  1. When you injure yourself while you are sleeping. (I woke up this morning and apparently twisted my knee while I was asleep.)
  2. I no longer think of speed limits as a challenge.
  3. Leonard called me at 8 pm. last night and asked, “Did I wake you?”
  4. There is more hair in my ears then on my head.
  5. Happy hour for me is a nap.
  6. Half the numbers in my phone are for Doctors and pharmacies.
  7. Getting lucky for me is finding my truck in the parking lot.
  8. A young lady knocked on my door looking for another driver.  She said, “I’m sorry.  I have the wrong truck”.  I said, “You have the right truck, you are just 30 years too late.”
  9. My clothes do not match and I really don’t care.
  10. For breakfast, I hear ‘snap, crackle and pop’ and I’m just eating eggs.

    I love it!!! Interesting how hard we can laugh at ourself! I can relate to these ‘getting old symptoms.’ I could add a few too, since I have a few years on you.
    Like before going to bed we have to put our eyes, ears and chompers on the shelf! Then retreive them to go take the pills we forgot.

    Love the old typewriter. My grandma had one that looked exactly like it. She wrote stories and poetry.

    I know I am now getting old – I wake with alien scratches on my head, it’s age or the headboard, lol.
