.....you are going to a concert this evening at 8pm and you're planning on taking a nap after work so you can stay awake for the whole concert.

Not a Joke. Leaving work at 2. Taking a nap. Going to see Greta Van Fleet at 8.

    I love Greta Van Fleet. There's still hope for Rock and Roll.

    You have to leave the show by midnight because 1) you can barely keep your eyes open and 2) you know you'll be up at 7 regardless of what time you go to bed :)

    I started to feel 'old' when professional athletes younger than me started to retire and those around my age are called 'old' (I'm looking at you Tom Brady!)

    You know you're getting old when dinner conversations revolve around body functions (or lack of), what new meds the doctor has put you on, and what Medicare plan you're going to sign up for in December.

    When your music is played on the oldies radio station.

    When you realize that you are in the group called "senior citizens" and you get a discount on seniors citizen's day in the store.







    Heck, there must have been days when I was in my 40s where I looked old, as I would get the Sr discount back then...

    I do have t-shirts older than my kid. I still wear them.

    You know you're getting old when your favorite music stations on the radio start with the words "classic".

    You know you're getting old when you know you won't be able to "take pics and post them please". Have yet to take a selfie.
