I can’t believe I have a son who will be 21 in a few months. I’m not old enough to have a son that old. With this new forty-something age I’ve become, I’ve noticed a few changes in my life that I’m not sure I like. It seems that just overnight I’ve become “older.” How do I know I’m getting old? Things like…
- The print in my favorite bible is getting smaller all the time. The print used to be perfect, but now I can’t even read the verse numbers. So I’ve officially decided that my favorite translation is now LARGE print.
- I like my music a little softer. After a lifetime of loud rock music, I’m now finding Jack Johnson & John Mayer more to my liking.
- My bedtime is getting earlier each night.
- Sleeping late on Saturday is never past 8 a.m.
- The little reading glasses my friend bought me as a joke, are now pretty handy to have.
- The grey hairs are beginning to outnumber the others.
Even though I may be getting a little older, I haven’t reached REALLY old. You’re REALLY old when you…
- Feel a desire to give money to PBS.
- Turn out the lights for economic reasons instead of romantic reasons.
- Have a deep desire to drive a Buick.
- Read the obituaries everyday.
- The end of your tie doesn’t come anywhere near the top of your pants.
- Wear socks with sandals.
- Hear your favorite song on an elevator.
- Your favorite channel is The Weather Channel.
- When you’re comfortable talking about your bowel movements.
Do you ever feel old?
