You know you're getting old when all the cars at the 'Classic Car Show' are cars that you saw roll out of the showroom...

they used to think coffee was unhealthy but now they are saying it has lots of good antioxidants and also, it helps w/ depression.

you know you are old when you can't remember whether or not you locked the door

5 minutes after doing so

and you're really old when this happens every day..

then again, maybe you are not old so much as.. distracted, absent-minded (which are signs of genius)

laugh

That happens to me frequently. I lock the door. Go down to the elevator, and the thought comes to me. "Did I lock the door?" I go back, and confirm it's locked.

Usually only have to go back to confirm it once, though.

You know you're getting old when you forget your glasses at home, but this isn't a problem because you have a spare pair of glasses in your locker at work.


This is exactly what happened to me today. Yes, forgetting my glasses is something that happens so often that I actually have a contingency plan in place to deal with it. And this is not the first time I've had to use that spare pair of glasses in my locker either.

laugh. Do you go into another room of your house/apt intent on getting some item

and 2 seconds later can't recall what you went to retrieve? And then it takes about 1/2 hour to remember. (not laugh)
