One of mine was years ago. I was driving past my old high school, that wasn't odd at the time I had to drive past it every day to get to work

There were a bunch of kids waiting at the corner to cross the street. Looking at them it occurred to me that someone who was born on my first day of high school was now in high school. That was when I ws 27/28 so it didn't make me feel "old" but definitely made me realize that time was passing

Having trouble remembering what someone told me last week but having total recall of a sitcom theme song from 35 years ago

Something else I always hear was when you get to the point that you don't recognize the host or musical guest on Saturday Night Live - you're old

I was just talking about this one last week, watching older movies and identifying more with the adults

Came across this talking about the Little Mermaid

Ariel: Daddy, I love him!

Me at 14: Yeah, girl, you tell him!

Me at 30:

The parents of two of my co-workers are friends of mine from high school. My co-workers are 25 and 30. My kids are 18 and 8 :covri:

Caffeine used to not affect me at all

I used to be able to drink gallon of coffee or soda right before going to bed and still fall fast asleep

Now if I have a sip of either past 8pm I'll be staring at my bedroom ceiling for a long while

Any time I see a movie with a payphone, it seems so old--for instance, when the reporters in "Airplane!" all run to the bank of payphones, and the whole row collapses. It won't be long before nobody will recognize payphones. Chokes will probably have a longer life because of snowblowers.

I know. This absolutely sucks as I have been a lifelong lover of all things caffeine. I would give up any of my vices but dang being less tolerant of caffeine is a horrible way to go

Indeed. I drink a cup of coffee to start each day. It's hard to imagine giving that up.

What makes me feel old? Not remembering I had already posted in this thread and then searching and realizing I had posted in this thread 13 times.
