how I can tell I'm getting old

  • I loathe seeing snow on the forecast.
  • I don't carry tweezers in my purse purely for sliver removal anymore....Now it's to attack the strange beard hairs that are suddenly sprouting from my chin.
  • I had to explain the 'rules' of Pacman to the babysitter while she played my vintage handheld game.
  • I feel more comfortable when I wear higher cut jeans....and I'm just fine with that.
  • I have finally realized that Lola in the Kink's song is a transvestite. Yes, that last line says "Lola is a man" but somehow this fact eluded me for all these years.
  • I don't have a Twitter account. But the local elementary does.

I stopped enjoying snow when I learned to drive. It's pretty to look at, but I don't like being stuck in a long line of slow-moving cars attempting to navigate it. That's just no fun at all.

I never knew that about Lola either! I am amazed. And very old.

Shite, I am with you all the way (except for Pacman...never did have any video games!)
Chin hairs, snow-hating, facebook and twitterless, and low-rise jeans-hating! Isn't aging grand?

Oh, I only discovered Lola's "secret" a few years ago myself...
