When you see a young girl on the street and think, "If you have to spend half your day obviously and self-consciously picking your skirt out of your butt cheeks, that should be a sign that just maybe you know it's too short????"

MovingUpward posted 9/5/2013 13:34 PM

I would have never have thought that. I'm going to be young forever!!!!!!!

That's because your skirts are always a tasteful length, Moo.

lynnm1947 posted 9/5/2013 13:43 PM

and @ MOO

YOU are supposed to add your own. (Purses lips and points finger like an old lady.)

[due to your flashes]

If you talk about where you were when Armstrong set foot on the moon. . . . Oh wait I wasn't born then. I must be channeling NIK.

Touche, Sir.

1. I would rather talk to a human then to a recorded voice or text.

2. I tell kids I remember a time when there were no computers or cell phones.

3. I am the first one to leave the 10pm....because its already past my bed time (to my defense 4:45am comes early dang it)

4. I scare the dogs whilst getting out of bed because usually both my hips, knees and back!

Little story....She-Ra was like THE thing growing up (as well as He Man, Thundercats, and Gem...but I digress)....

There was a MAYBE 20 year old girl moving stacked chairs and another lady my age (30) came up to her and commented:

30yr: Look at you go She-Ra Princess of Power.
20ish: Stares blankly...who's that?

I died alittle inside...and then I quietly said "For the Honor of Grey Skull...I AM SHE RA!"....enter theme music.

But still...i feel so old.

You can no longer bend over to pick something up off the ground without making a noise.

You hear your favorite song ... but it's in an elevator

An "all-nighter" means you don't have to get up to pee.

You get breathless going DOWN stairs ...

my favorite music is on the oldies channel... dang, has it really been 30 yrs since I graduated HS?!

Jrazz posted 9/5/2013 16:20 PM

I promise to visit all of you in your retirement villas. I'll even learn to play canasta or whatever it is your generation does.

nowiknow23 posted 9/5/2013 16:21 PM

Whipper. snapper.

Get off my lawn, kid.

Clarrissa posted 9/5/2013 16:52 PM

When you remember "classic rock" as "hard rock" i.e. BTO, Boston, AC/DC, Led Zeppelin, etc.

And yes, I temember where I eas when Armstrong took his famous step: I was 5, in the living room when I lived in Utah...yes, it was 44 yeats ago...

You hear your favorite song ... but
the always been news talk radio station for old folks is using a clip of it as an intro for the traffic or crime report...

♫ Breaking the law. Breaking the law. ♪

ETA: And lets not forget Twisted Sister being used for an allergy medication commercial.

Everyone needs to get off my lawn...and I don't even have a lawn.

1. You made it through high school and college without having to own a personal computer or an email account.

2. You didn't always have a cell phone, and you and the people in your life didn't always have to have instant access to each other. And somehow we all survived!

3. You see a really good-looking, college-aged girl wearing next to nothing, and your first thought is that she reminds you a bit of your oldest daughter, and your second thought is that you'd never let her go out dressed like that.

4. You feel like you just had your 40th birthday party, and realize that you're almost halfway between that and a potential 50th birthday party.

5. You have vivid memories of things that happened when Carter was president.

6. The 90s seem very recent.

7. You can't name a single song on this week's Top 40 charts. Hell, you're not even sure they still have Top 40 charts.

8. The gray hair is advancing rapidly.

9. You can pull a muscle doing just about anything. Or nothing.

10. You stop being able to help your kids with homework sometime around 7th grade, because you forgot that shit a long time ago.

11. You remember a time when wait staff at restaurants didn't refer to middle-aged couples as "you guys."

Signs I may be getting old:

A new found appreciation for elastic.


Kid from school: Hey Mrs Unfound, what are you doing?

Me: I'm on a mission from God

Kid: huh?


Having to explain how a record player works.


Having to have someone explain to me what twerking is.


Understanding that my parents set my curfew so early not because they didn't trust me, but because they couldn't stay up any later than that to come pick me up.


Comfort trumps style


A new vaccuum at 40 is equal to a pony at 10.


16 year olds look like 20 year olds, and 20 year olds look like 16 year olds


5th graders were born after 9/11


Supper at 4:30 doesn't sound so ridiculous.


Why did I come in this post??

MissesJai posted 9/5/2013 18:15 PM

I'd rather listen to AM talk radio than FM radio.

unfound posted 9/5/2013 18:22 PM

You've seen clothing fads come back around... twice.

Rebreather posted 9/5/2013 18:35 PM

You realize Friends has been off the air for NINE YEARS.
