1. Your houseplants are alive, and you can't smoke any of them.
2. Having sex in a twin bed is out of the question.
3. You keep more food than beer in the fridge.
4. 600 AM is when you get up, not when you go to bed.
5. You hear your favorite song on an elevator.
6. You watch the Weather Channel.
7. Your friends marry and divorce instead of hookup and breakup.
8. You go from 130 days of vacation time to 14.
9. Jeans and a sweater no longer qualify as "dressed up."
10. You're the one calling the police because those damn kids
next door won't turn down the stereo.

12. You don't know what time Taco Bell closes anymore.
13. Your car insurance goes down and your payments go up.

16. You no longer take naps from noon to 6 ! ! PM.

never going to drink that much again."
23. 90% of the time you spend in front of a computer is for
real work.

Very funny! I did read the list looking for something that did not apply (could not find it!).Especialy the first one.LOL..
Being old just lets us buy better toys for our furry pets!

Thanks for the humor.

hehe, I've felt that way for years now. I grew up fast, but I prefer it that way, I don't want to be/act/feel like a kid.

Well then again I would like to have the physical well being of a child, that would be nice.

Sonny, my rocking chair squeaks, or is that my hearing aid? And where's my knee rug? - the old arthritis is playing up!

wow.. i'm 23 and trying to fight the list as much as possible but it seems to be a losing battle.. My friends call me "grandma" and I'm actually starting to be OK with that.. At least I don't end up in the "law and order" section of the local paper anymore lol..
