You Know You're Getting Old When........

as in my case, you don't know which is receding faster---your hairline or your gumline.

I make an extra effort not to try to stand up during sex anymore.

It's all about coping with the changes and, uhm, embracing them...

It depends on which you take two at a time: stairs or pills.

When you can't remember what day of the week it is, and you're not sure if it's because you're retired or because you're getting old.

It's because I'm retired, and not a slave to the clock or the calendar anymore!

But I always know when it's Wednesday.....'cause the neighbors have their garbage cans out by the curb!

An old timer told me years ago that he'd rather take a good dump than get laid. I'm not looking forward to that at least not yet.

Finding silver strands in my hair....I have yanked out 33 strands so far.
Catching myself saying "Kids these days".
Actively searching for comfortable underwear rather than something lacey.
Cleaning and lighting incense on a rainy friday night and loving it.

Not pulling out the silver strands in my hair, and just being grateful there is still some hair of whatever color.
Looking in the mirror and wondering who that geezer woman is, and what she's done with me.

You know you're getting old when you tell a young co-worker about "Ma Bell" and how everyone used to have the same phone company and couldn't own their own phones, and she doesn't believe you (this really happened )
