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:

One of my biggest concerns is getting to a point where I can no longer trust my farts. We’ve had a pretty solid relationship through the years (except for a couple of Taco Tuesdays in college), and I’d like to continue the partnership. I don’t want to have to keep an extra pair of pantaloons on me, you know.

This past weekend, i was watching the Saints- Bears game on Nickelodeon.. about 5 minutes in, someone brought up a statistic from the year 2000 and one of the ‘broadcasters’ said ‘Oh, that was before i was born’...... Switched back to CBS for the rest of the game

hah what about the under 35 or 40 places

My funniest liquor store moment was the man in front of me getting checked for his ID. He was balding and had a gray beard. He told the owner man I'm 47 years old. was in Hattiesburg Ms. at the time. I was 21 and looked 15. I was coming back from a USM game and left my wallet at the house. The cashier who asked for a 47 year old mans Id, checked me out without a question.

hah. that is hilarious. i'm 42, apparently i look like i am early thirties (at least beardless, which i shaved after trying to grow since march, yet still looked lame), and still get carded. all the time

i actually go to the same places to avoid it. not sure why, but i hate being carded.

Be thankful you are carded. There will come a day you'll never be asked

All relationships take work - you just can’t expect what was great in the honeymoon phase will work decades later
Maybe y’all need to talk to someone

Something that makes me feel old?
That feeling when the Saints win the coin toss and you're begging them to send the defense on!
But hey this year...a little deja vu ;)
