Aging is inevitable, folks. I still remember the first time I heard one of my joints creaking. Definitely freaked me out!
Time comes for all of us, and these 15 people’s experience make me feel the slightest bit better.
#1. I am not ‘adult’ like that.
When I realized that I have clear memories of moments I spent with my parents when they were younger than I am now. I remember how “adult” I perceived them and I don’t feel like I am “adult” like that at all.
#2. Coupons in the mail.
When I started to get excited about coupons I got in the mail..
#3. A new vacuum.
When I got really excited about buying a new vacuum. In my defense….that vacuum is fucking dope!
#4. “Old” Disney shows.
When the kid I was tutoring referred to Hannah Montana, Wizards of Waverly Place, etc., as “old Disney shows”
#5. They stopped asking for ID.
When they stop asking for ID when you buy beer.
#6. 10 years younger.
When I realized, that athletes in the NFL are 10 years younger than me. Plus they are already making millions…
#7. Every morning after.
Every morning after drinking.
#8. I’m a ma’am now.
That first time that first teenager called me “Ma’am” respectfully.
I’m a Ma’am now. I’m not a Miss anymore. sighs
#9. The tables have turned.
You know how you might see an older person and not remember them and they say, “you don’t remember me? I remember you when you were this small”?
Well I realized I was old when the tables turned and I ended up being the older one remembering this now grown up as a kid.
#10. I could not stop laughing.
i found out about a rapper named lil windex and i could not stop laughing
#11. I don’t mind.
I can’t name any actor on a recent show and I don’t know who most people are on TV or in music. I’m old,out of the loop but I don’t mind. The loop isn’t relevant to my interests anymore.
#12. Not 10 years ago.
1990 is NOT 10 years ago anymore.
Grunting when picking up something. And the music is “just not as cool as before”.
#14. I just coughed.
Fucked around and coughed while on the toilet, somehow hurt my back and sprained my knee
#15. Classic rock.
when i heard Metallica on the classic rock station, also coming to the realization i have tattoos older than some of my co-workers
Getting old may be hell, but it does certainly beat the alternative!
