What Makes You Feel Old

    I have a home full of 15yo boys sleeping over, listeninf to SLIPNOT and KORN and I'm sure SLAYER and MARILYN.

    I feel old and decrepid even though I go to festivals with them.
    I'm hidden in the study away from the noise

    Life is moving on quickly

    I've given the warning about smoking in the bedrooms. Am I mean or what?

    No you are NOT mean! Children, and a 15 year old is still a child/verging young adult. NO SMOKING EVER!

    I have a friend whose parents didn't keep him from smoking - apparently he first tried it at boy scout camp. Now (20 some odd years later) he really regrets that his parents didn't try to get him to quit when he was young and still in their house.

    I feel very VERY old when my daughter asks to take the training wheels off of her bicycle. I flash back to my Dad RUNNING behind me holding the back of my bicycle seat while I tried to learn my balance.

    I don't think Dad wants to do that at age 62 with his grandchild.

    I am groaning as I type this.. ohhhhhhhh my knees....

    Back pain makes ME feel old! (G)

    My baby - my younger daughter having voted in her first election - that makes me feel old.

    Ah, I don't know....

    I think I'll think about things that make me feel YOUNG, maybe.

    I'm the baby (#6) of the family at 31. Watching one of my nieces graduate from high school and plan her wedding. THAT makes me feel old.

    When my younger cousins age 19 or 20 start having babies and getting married. Now, I'm not yet 30 but that makes me feel old cause I used to baby sit some of these people.

    Finding out that some young person never heard of the Beatles!!!

    My right knee, it makes this hideous sound. And sometimes, for no reason, I'll be walking and my left hip does this weird thing.

    But the most horrible thing was when they started showing commercials for the 20th Anniversary Edition of "E.T." Before I could stop myself, I looked at my son and squealed "I remember seeing that in the theaters when it first came out!"
