When I had to increase the text size on my computer monitor.

But I still look damn good.

I was working setting up an art show at a little college I used to live near and one of the current students was helping me. As we were chatting I mentioned I had graduated from the high school that used to be on the grounds. She said she didn't know there had been a high school there and asked when this was. I told her when I graduated and her eyes got really big and she said "Wow, I wasn't even born then!"

Yeah. That was it.

And I get to feel it again every time I check the age of some of the people posting in this thread and find they weren't born when I graduated from high school either! Hell, some of you weren't even born when I graduated from college.

I had to look it up on the internet.
I feel old when,
I walk into a room and forget why I'm there,
I grunt when I stand up,
I'm in my jammies by 6 and barely awake by 10,
I like to go to bed early so that I can be up early, best part of the day,
I don't instinctively know what's hot and not, I have no idea,
I see teenagers and think their hair/clothes are ridiculous,
the clothes I wore in school are back,
my favourite songs are on the classics hits station,
I quite like watching The Bill or Parkinson,
people tell me I should have babies soon or it'll be too late,
I buy new shoes and my Mum has bought the same pair, like some freaky twin thing,
I have a sensible hairdo,
everyone has to be quiet when the weathers on,
my handbag has a pen, tissues, bandaids, comb, chewy, hairpins, brolly, gloves, chapstick, panadol, lots of receipts - be prepared for anything,
I clutch my purse a little tighter when hooligans are around,
I use stupid words like hooligans,
I have lots of Best of CDS, Simon & Garfunkal, Tom Jones etc, not very hip,
I go on and on and on not thinking that I may be boring everyone.

Life moves pretty fast, if you don't stop to look around once in a while, you might miss it.

I've always felt older in my head, so to speak, than my real age. Which is probably why I actually feel like I'm getting happier as I get older - I'm slowly catching up to my "mental" age,

and you might remember a show called 'Let's Make A Deal' - you would certainly have been prepared

at MrBaw

One of my responses would be that recently I started having to take 16 pills a day for an illness. And I had to buy a pillcase so that if I'm not home, I will have them with me wherever I go.

Oh, and one more thing that makes me feel old. When every store displays only strapless, sleeveless, halter or spaghetti strap tops. They're just not my style. Maybe my daughters, but not mine anymore
