    1. Your houseplants are alive, and you can't smoke any of them.
    2. Having sex in a twin bed is out of the question.
    3. You keep more food than beer in the fridge.
    4. 6:00 AM is when you get up, not when you go to bed.
    5. You hear your favorite song in an elevator.
    6. You watch the Weather Channel.
    7. Your friends marry and divorce instead of "hook up" and "break up."
    8. You go from 130 days of vacation time to 14.
    9. Jeans and a sweater no longer qualify as "dressed up."
    10. You're the one calling the police because those %&@# kids next
    door won't turn down the stereo.
    11. Older relatives feel comfortable telling sex jokes around
    you.
    12. You don't know what time Taco Bell closes anymore.
    13. Your car insurance goes down and your car payments go up.
    14. You feed your dog Science Diet instead of McDonald's
    leftovers.
    15. Sleeping on the couch makes your back hurt.
    16. You take naps.
    17. Dinner and a movie is the whole date instead of the
    beginning of one.
    18. Eating a basket of chicken wings at 3 AM would severely
    upset, rather than settle, your stomach.
    19. You go to the drug store for ibuprofen and antacid, not
    condoms and pregnancy tests.
    20. A $4.00 bottle of wine is no longer "pretty good ****."
    21. You actually eat breakfast food at breakfast time.
    22. "I just can't drink the way I used to" replaces "I'm never going to drink that much again."
    23. 90% of the time you spend in front of a computer is for
    real work.
    24. You drink at home to save money before going to a bar.
    25. When you find out your friend is pregnant you congratulate
    them instead of asking "Oh crap - what the H--- happened?"
    26. You read this entire list looking desperately for one sign
    that doesn't apply to you and can't find one to save your sorry old
    ***.

    BONUS.
    One way to tell your OLD

    1. You KNOW you're good in bed because....


    you can sleep for days.

    I get severely depressed when I hear old songs which I thought to be so cutting-edge on Swiffer commercials.
    :(
    I was born old though, really. I'm pretty much a fuddy-duddy since birth.
    Love....Jill

    I know I must be grown up.The pencil sharpener and 24" photo trimmer that I bought new, are now antiques.

    "I used to party for a week, and recover in a day"

    now reads..."If I party for a day, it takes me a week to recover"


    now, my body and my back complain more about my lifestyle than my mother used to! :banghead:

    I think i was born backwards. I was a pretty serious kid, i have no idea where that went.

    In my late teens & early twenties I loved to sleep. In fact, remember when everyone was wearing those stupid I'd Rather Be... Sailing, Skiing, Fishing or whatever shirts... i made myself one that said "I'd Rather Be Sleeping."

    I could sleep 12 hours those days... now 3 is pretty standard.
