What makes you feel old? (1 Viewer)

Took my kids to Six Flags today and 4 rides in I'm feeling sick and trying not to puke on the rides. I'm 39 so far from old but I felt old today. I've been laying down getting my head to stop spinning for 3 hours now - this sucks.

So, what makes you feel old?

 
I'm pooping right. I don't really have to poop, but it gives me a few minutes of peace from the wife and kids.

And my back is really sore for some reason.

 
2 days of feeling hungover after drinking 1/2 what I did when I was 25.

Getting up at night to pee.

Looking at my watch at 9:30 PM and thinking it's time for bed.

 
I pulled a muscle in my neck pretty badly last night....

... by turning it left-to-right while laying in bed. :bag:
 
I was talking about Troy Aikman with my BIL last year. His 15-year-old son (my nephew) interrupts and says "the announcer?"

:kicksrock:

 
Watching American Reunion tonight and knowing I'm a few years older than the characters who lament about getting older in the movie.

 
People born in 1991 are legally allowed to drink in the US
Does it make you feel worse that most people born in 1992 can also legally drink?
I was going to say '92, but that is only half correct. In a couple years though, people who werent even born when OJ committed murder and Kurt Cobain killed himself will be able to legally drink.

'92 dont seem that long ago, and Im only 28.

 
Pulled/strained a groin muscle in March - still healing.

Increased frequency of visits to WebMD.

I know for a fact that all women in their 30s are bat-#### crazy.

 
--Having sex for a couple days in a row and needing traction.

--Not having sex and still finding it very difficult to get out of bed.

--Sneezing and breaking a rib.

36 pushing 37 in a couple weeks.

I am out of shape. This not a LOOK AT ME post. It's the ####### truth.

I meant to say SUPER bat-#### crazy.
I hate to break the news, but it won't get any better when they blow out 40 candles.
I'm pretty sure the bat-#### crazy peaks sharply in the 30's. I'd volunteer to do more research, but I know better.
Id guess youre correct, because they know once the 40's hit, they only have 10 more years until their bodies fall apart and they increasingly look like their mother, so theyll be in desperation mode

 
I teach high school and when I look at the birthdates on these kids, it makes me feel older every year. I am almost to the point where the kids weren't even alive at any point in the 90s. They talk about the 90s like it was Ancient Rome.

I disagree, to an extent. There are plenty of hot 50-somethings in the world today.

Results vary wildly by geography.

More than geography, I think $$ is the greatest factor in how well a woman holds up. That is a mix of plastic surgery, makeup, money to spend on clothes and working out.

 
When entertainers I grew up with die.

When I have a student ask who is 2-pac (said pack)

When I'd rather go to sleep than have sex

Mostly the mirror...

You have students ask who 2pac was? Amongst the kids I teach, he is like the new Beatles or Elvis. Most of the kids can't really name any of those artists songs, but everyone knows who they are and has heard them.

 
Another one for me - grunting when getting out of a chair. My Dad's done this for years and I always wondered why he did it - now I know.

 
Scheduling a colonoscopy.

I used to be attracted to older women.

Soldiers in my unit born my senior year in High school.

The kid was quickly made fun of by several others and it did lead to an interesting discussion on the East Coast vs West Coast rap war of the 90's.

Some of these have been mentioned already;

Food that's now to spicy for me

My kids getting married

I need my kids help to figure out my phone/computer

People driving to fast down my street

Having to stop drinking because I got a headache instead of catching a buzz

Music that's too loud

Total anxiety kicking in if I stay up past my "bedtime" on a work night

The need to make lists or "plan" everything in advance

 
Thinking abou thow old I was when kids who are currently entering college were born. Speaking of which, these kids aren't old enough to understand what was going on during 9/11.

Looking at photos from the 90s and thinking about how old they seem. About as old as photos from the early 80s seemed then.
