Getting older...

Monday, January 21, 2008

Face it...we are all getting older and with it come some obvious changes not only physically but also within our personalities. I can relate...can you?

You Know You're Getting Old When...

You have a party and the neighbors don't even realize it.

Your back goes out more than you do.

You quit trying to hold your stomach in, no matter who walks into the room.

You buy a compass for the dash of your car.

You are proud of your lawn mower.

Your best friend is dating someone half their age... And isn't breaking any laws.

Your arms are almost too short to read the newspaper.

You sing along with the elevator music.

You would rather go to work than stay home sick.

You enjoy hearing about other people's operations.

You no longer think of speed limits as a challenge.

People call at 9 pm. And ask, "Did I wake you?"

The end of your tie doesn't come anywhere near the top of your pants.

You wear black socks with sandals.

You get into a heated argument about pension plans.

You got cable for the weather channel.
