Coasting Downhill. Hurtling?

 It's becoming clearer to me with each passing day that I am getting o___, becoming youth challenged. My friends and I joke about it all the time now, the signs are there, actually the signs of aging are held in the hands of angry anti-youth protesters that show up and force you to act your age. Where is a good water cannon when you need one!

 I know that I'm getting older because....

 I like rhubarb now, I used to hate it with a passion.

 I find most people too loud, it's like they think they are in a play and are performing for me. I don't care how you told off the person at work.

 I think most new t.v.shows are stupid.

 I prefer a good cup of tea over any type of pop or soft drink.

 Even though I enjoy swimming, I rarely go because most pools and lakes feel like ice water to me now.

  Most new music is garbage to me, although to be honest I was never a top forty type of person.

 I sometimes hurt my back just by getting out of bed the wrong way the morning.

 I find sci-fi movies ridiculous, when at one time they were my favorite.

 I don't like cake anymore and just threw some out a neighbour gave to me.

 My "down time" is a nap.

 Sex takes a lot longer to reach the final goal, okay I'm not complaining about that one, I'm bragging!

 I have my current cell phone for five years and I still don't remember the number.

 My stomach closes up shop and goes home around seven in the evening.

 New clothes are like a stranger in my personal space, while old favorites are like my family.

 Any weird or odd aches and pains, make me worry about a tumor or heart disease.

 New gadgets no longer excite me, they annoy me. I think it's a conspiracy to make you buy the latest version of everything.

 I sometimes feel there is a conspiracy behind most things, it's the government! Kids these days! When I was young! There was a time! I'm having toast for supper. I need a nap.

do you shake your cane and scream "you kids get offa mah lawn!" too? almost age 64 here, but I think 40.

Anne Marie, I always think I'm late thirties, actually some of the thirty somethings at work thought I was their age. I'm sometimes startled when I remember my real age. I just read Dr Spo's post about getting older, of course his was better but in my defense he has more practice! Lol

You are not becoming older, just wine. I can't think of any one of your points where I'd disagree. I do so love a good cup of tea as well. I look forward to your future rants about "young on's" or tight fitting shoes, or feeling cold...or just about anything. Welcome to the club.

All of your comments with the exception of the sex one and the cake one, could have been spoken by me!

I'm 58 and quite like being 58 really.
My grandma always used to say "every day above ground is a good one, especially when you consider the alternative"

Every decade has its benefits.

Don't forget to share news of the chicks.......😀

Best wishes, Chris.

It happened quickly for me. I started asking questions younger people questions about my computer or my phone without asking them if they knew anything about it first. My clients started calling me "Sir" automatically.

Stuff like that.

I woke up one day and realized I was no longer young. It's quite a shock.

Sounds like you've just graduated from Curmudgeon 101. If you're not careful you may end up taking Incontinence 204. ;-)

Feeling cold Walter, this morning I put on a sweater, it was my dad's cardigan, young people don't know what a cardigan is, KIDS these days!!!

Sooo-this-is-me said...

Christina, I still love pie and cookies! Maybe I love pie and cookies a little too much actually. Yes lol, many of the elderly people around here use that same saying. I keep meaning to post chick pics, I will do so at a later date.

Sooo-this-is-me said...

Harry Hamid, I remember looking around the first time I was called sir! I think maybe we are in denial about it until the day when it smacks us in the head.

Sooo-this-is-me said...

Gee.... thanks Debra, do I get another toaster oven like when I joined the gay agenda club or is it a case of prunes?

Sooo-this-is-me said...

Will, I think I shall skip that course along with Constantly Flatulent 303 and Slightly Impudent olo.

I prefer to think I'm seasoned and experienced as opposed to old.

Sooo-this-is-me said...

RJ, seasoned as in salt and pepper? Plus exactly what do you mean by experienced?

Ur-spo said...

The trouble with the younger generation? You are no longer part of it.

Sooo-this-is-me said...

Dr Spo.... yes that's the problem lol and whaaaa! :(...
