Signs that I’m Getting Old

1. Now when I look at a pretty girl on the street and think “I could have a daughter her age!”, it doesn’t even freak me out any more.

2. The last time I went for a haircut the barber spontaneously offered to trim my eyebrows.

3. The times when a good dump is the highlight of my day are happening way too often.

4. When I do that quick mental cost-benefit assessment before going out to drink heavily, the balance more often seems to be in the negative.

5. I’m not an angry driver any more.

6. I’m genuinely worried about the possibility of losing my job and having to find another.

7. Younger Spanish people are starting to address me with the ‘usted’ form.

8. Although I still don’t know what I want to be when I grow up, I’ve stopped fretting about it.

9. I can finally admit to myself that I’ve always hated nightclubs.

10. I eat slower and savor the food more. Actually quality seems to be trumping quantity in most aspects of my life.

11. I never did teach myself how to juggle. And before you say anything, there’s no fucking way I’m starting now.

I'll keep adding to this post but feel free to post your own contributions in the comments section.

a. The main reason I go for a hair cut is so the barber will shave the part of my back/neck that sticks up out of my t-shirt.

b. I realize when I am talking about Citizen Kane that the people I am talking to think I am talking about an episode of the Simpsons.

c. My kid says 'Daddy you have hairy boobies' and I think 'Well at least she didn't mention the grey hair'.
