Signs You Are No Longer a Kid
You're asleep, but others worry that you're dead.
You can live without sex but not without your glasses.
Your back goes out more than you.
You quit trying to hold your stomach in, no matter who walks into the room.
You buy a compass for the dash of your car.
You are proud of your lawn mower.
Your best friend is dating someone half their age ..... and isn't breaking any laws.
Your arms are almost too short to read the newspaper.
You sing along with the elevator music.
You would rather go to work than stay home sick.
You constantly talk about the price of gasoline.
You enjoy hearing about other people's operations.
You consider coffee one of the most important things in life.
You make an appointment to see the dentist.
You no longer think of speed limits as a challenge.
Neighbors borrow your tools.
People call at 9 p.m. and ask, "Did I wake you ?"
You answer a question with, "because I said so!"
You send money to PBS.
The end of your tie doesn't come near the top of your pants.
You take a metal detector to the beach.
You wear black socks with sandals.
You know what the word "equity" means.
You can't remember when you last laid on the floor to watch TV.
Your ears are hairier than your head.
You talk about "good grass" and you're referring to the lawn.
You get into a heated argument about pension plans.
You got cable for the weather channel.
You can go bowling without drinking.
You have a party and the neighbors don't even realize it.
Strange how priority's keep on changing, isn't it?
There are 30 reasons to prove you aren't a spring chicken anymore. How many directly refer to you?
0-10 you're under 35.
10-15 and you're 35-40.
15-20 you're over 40.
Over 20, and you're an old duffer!
