You Know You’re Old When…

• The shows on Nickelodeon don’t make any sense at all to you (but your kids love ‘em)
• You try to convince yourself that your gray hair is really just old blond highlights
• When you stand, you snap, crackle and pop more than a bowl of Rice Krispies
• You choose sleep over going out with friends
• When you see kids out late at night, you wonder aloud where their parents are
• You put on your jammies as soon as you get home from work
• You find yourself saying, “When I was your age…”
• The oldies station on the radio plays all your favorite songs from high school
• Book club replaces going to the club
• You have to explain to your kids what a typewriter or rotary phone is and how life worked before microwaves
• The 99 cent menu at any fast food place no longer sounds good to you
• You get excited about a new appliance
• You wear clothes over your swimsuit at the pool
• You sit up at midnight typing up a list entitled “You know you’re old when…”
• Your kids tell you that you are

What would you add?
