I Am Old...but so are you.

I didn't think so at first either but then I found this list:

You are old if...

You don't care where your spouse goes, just as long as you don't have to go along.
You're not grouchy; you just don't like traffic, waiting, crowds, and politicians.
The phone rings and you hope it's not for you.
The only reason you're still awake at 4 am is indigestion.
You start singing along with the elevator music.
You really do want a new washing machine for your birthday.
You consider coffee one of the most important things in life.
8 AM is your idea of "sleeping in".
You can't remember the last time you lay on the floor to watch television. 

When the hell did this happen? 


  1. I think there was some sort of time warp at the end of the 90s.

  2. Sometime after I realized that I had to pay my bills... oi.

  3. Judging by this list, I think only half of me is old. Unfortunately I think it's the saggy lower half. :(

  4. Amen to number one! My husband has all these crazy work meetings at night and I'm all, "I work all day. Do you really think I want to accompany you to your job at night?" Nope. He can make up for it by sleeping in the next day but I still have to be up at 5 a.m., on that treadmill, then get ready to be at work at 7:30. At night during the week I just want to veg on the sofa.

  5. I am definitely old.

    I would add:

    When it's uncomfortable to sit on the floor cross-legged for longer than two minutes.

    When you try on new clothes and your concern is not that they're too small for you, but that they're too young for you.

    When you pass on that last piece of cheesecake because you know your stomach can't handle it.

  6. I guess I'm not old yet, but it can't be long. :)


It helps to know I'm not just talking to myself.
