When my 16 year old cousin doesn't know who Boyz II Men is… I cry.
your body feels like it was in a car accident when you only went tobogganing.. wtf
When my adult nephew asked me about the Beatles.
You want sock and underpants for Christmas.
CocoaBeachBunny – OMG. That link was hysterical.
I can't believe I lost my shit on a bunch of kids. Eh, well. They deserved it.
The caption in Random Photos about Debbie Harry looking great as she nears 70. SEVENTY?!?! Debbie Harry? Where does the time go? I had the little 45 of "Call Me" that I played on my portable record player constantly. My friends and I felt so sophisticated because we'd heard that the song came from a movie that had a "MAN HOOKER" in it!!! Stroke the pearls!!!
THAT'S SOME BENJAMIN BUTTONS SHIT #NOREGRETS #GOGRAYORGOHOME
On the whole bar theme, when you finally get a night out with the girls and you pick a quiet place so you can "visit"
you wonder why the bar is openly serving alcohol to a group of people who appear to be 12 years old.
When your son asks you how old you were when your parents got you a cell phone and you have to explain that they didn't have those when you were young. And then you either get a blank or horrified stare in return. Sigh.
I realised I suddenly not only loved Rod Stewart's music but found him totally sexy and wanted to bang him. True story.
@feraltart my friends and I have a Golden Girls house too! I once made a joke plan of it for a friends birthday about a decade ago…more of a reality now though. Here's to hot pool boys and daiquiris in our dotage!
…you become older than the grown-ups on the TV shows you grew up watching as a kid.The first show to do that to me was a Cheers rerun a few years back. Norm was having a birthday and when Coach asked him how old he was he was YOUNGER than me…and I watched that episode when it originally aired in the 80s. I went into a two week ice cream binge over that.
When your friends have been discussing for a few years how you, as the youngest, will apparently be looking after them in the group home (one we buy, not a nursing home). The women do outnumber the men, so we will be having hot male nurses, hot male gardeners, and hot male home handymen! (We're in our 40's!!!!)
You can tell how strong the gravitational pull is anywhere on planet earth by taking off your bra.
When they ask if your child is your grandchild
When your doing yard work bending over pulling weeds and get honked at…. & you clap and cheer and run to tell anyone that will listen!! Back in the day they would have gotten the stink eye.
I made my husband swear Bible that he'll pluck my chin hairs if I get too old. .. He swore
Oh, The Vig triggered one of my first memories of feeling old:
When in your childhood baseball cards contain the rookie cards of managers.
When you have tickets to the Moody Blues concert at the AARP convention.
Yep, the last few gigs I've been to have been reformations….The Specials, Nik Kershaw, Kim Wilde, Lloyd Cole and the Commotions…..
I live down the road from one of Sydney's most popular music venues and I feel awful old when I walk past and don't recognise the name of the band playing that night, which it's it increasingly is! I thought Imagine Dragons was a kiddy show like the Wiggles just with dragons! Sad…
The band who was popular when you turned 21 (Nirvana) is now in the Rock N Roll Hall of Fame.
When the decade you turned 13 is now "nostalgic" for teenagers.
*comforts LowKey*We'll always have Asgard.
*reads thread*Dear god…what have I become?!?!!*flees in horror*
When you go to a bar and see the tear off calender of the day and year you have to have been born to be served and it says 1993.
* Derek Jeter retires.* You're kids friends refer to you as gramps.* AARP starts sending you letters.* Depends.
When you're walking down the street and see a nag sty teen in an ironic rock T. Only it's nirvana..
When you have to start trimming the hairs in your nose and ears.
When you think a chick is too young and she turns out to be 25.
When someone who's diaper you changed is taller than you.
When the bartender was born the year you graduated high school.
When you know you have t-shirts older than the stripper giving you a lap dance.
2 words that DEFINE being old: Gray Pubes.
I shave em, so I don't have to use Just For Men on my junk.
All of your children are older than you were when you married — and you were not a spring chick when you married. *sigh*
… when your kid asks you what the decade you graduated in was like, because she has to dress for it for "Oldies Day".
… when you ask someone to name the 4 Beatles, and they can't.
Nope not true, I had a crush on Tom Brokaw when I was ten
The new host of the Tonight Show is the exact same age as you o_o
1) People refer to you as "m'aam".
2) When you hear Donny Osmond talking about his son getting a driver's license. That happened about 10 years ago.
Speaking of Buzzfeed, look what is making the internet rounds.
When the musics too loud
When you do not need or want any new technology and get annoyed when things change. I made the change from VHS to DVD but I refuse to update my movie collection anymore!
When Buzzfeed obsesSively makes nostalgic lists about the decade you were born in.
all of these
when you know more celeb gossip than your 20 something kids do……..
when you start thinking mealtime seems so much more normal early bird style………ala the Seinfelds
you start wanting to lecture every person in a service capacity about doing their job to the best of their ability (cashiers, clerks, waitresses) and then realizing how you must sound to them……
I could go on……but that would be whining……
@derekI'll see your Sir, and raise you a ma'am. I die a little inside when I get ma'amed. And I'm usually saying a silent prayer that the offender is from the South
Thanks, Meanie. I had the pleasure of seeing DEVO twice in the last few years. Once, I even went alone and had maybe the best concert experience of my life.
Pantera are considered classic rock
I'm older than my doctor, but I'm younger than the President! (But older than FLOTUS.)
when the cashier at the grocery store doesn't bother to check your I.D.
Listening to CBC radio; radio guy just asked woman how old she is and who's her role model, her reply: 20 & Will I Am. BEK(I can't spell so I certainly can't spell his name) – radio guy stunned and so was the listener. Radio didn't follow up with a question, there was just the silence of a generation gap.
Its Just U – I was thinking that same thing about wardrobes. I still have my 1980s jeans with the tapered legs (like skinny jeans of today) and contrasting colors of denim, but those pants and my butt aren't on speaking terms. Only reason I'm not more upset about this is I got the pants when I was 13 or 14.
You're older than your doctor, your boss, your minister and the President.
When you're glad to take a nap, and when your eyes change and there's nothing you can do about it (around 40).
Or you can't talk your way out of a traffic ticket…that's painful..
When the little baby bagging groceries says, "Yes, ma'am!"
