You Know You Are Getting Old When....

...you hang out with one of your friends and think to yourself: At least my hair isn't as gray as his...

...you stop telling yourself that the "blonde" hairs you are finding all over your body are "blonde."

...you have hair all over your body.

...rap and/or hip hop is noise and insulting and not something you blast out your car windows to show how "hip" you are.

...you hear a slang term that is "new to you" like "breezy" and think to yourself Who in God's name would ever say that?

...you hear a slang term that is "new to you" like "breezy" and have to act like an English Professor Dork and ask someone So, how do you use that in a sentence?

...you go surfing once, for less than an hour, almost two weeks ago and your back is still so messed up that you can hardly stand for more than two minutes at a time.

...you can call your chiropractor and leave the following message "Hey guys. It's Mark. Call me back."

...thoughts of retirement are real and something that is on your radar.

...you write a sentence like "thoughts of retirement are real and something that is on your radar" and you are serious and not joking.

...you have friendships that are older than some of your college students.

...you have a college student that wants to be more than friends and you think that sounds disgusting because he is way too young for you.

...you get into things like "bike riding" instead of "basketball."

...you write a blog about getting older (and not for the first time, mind you).

By "college student" do you mean "triathlon buddy"? And if so, does his name happen to be Tim?

Wait a minute... let me clarify a few of these...

"...you have hair all over your body." We all know that you've had mass amounts of hair all over your body since, what, the 2nd grade...

And you need to correct this one to read:

"...you have a college student that wants to be more than friends and you think that sounds disgusting because HE is way too young for you and not because HE is a well, HE." Then again, it's never bothered you before so scrap that last one.

If I'm twelve days older than you, and you are old, then...
