When's the last time you realized "fuck I'm getting old"?

And bullshit stuff like "Oh my friend so-and-so just had a kid" doesn't count.

For me it happened tonight. I had to do a volunteer thing for work so I'm out there with my buddy Jon who is my age (almost 29) and this new kid we hired named Marcus who is just barely over 18. And so we're talking about music and Jon and I start talking about REO Speedwagon and Jon says something to Marcus and Marcus says "I've never heard of REO Speedwagon" so we sort of chuckle and then we start singing "Take It on the Run" because everybody on the fucking continent knows that song and he's like "yeah, I've never heard that song in my life". So he may have been fucking with us but either way it made me realize "fucking shit I'm getting old, I'm actually interacting with a human being who has never heard 'Take It on the Run'."

Listening to a "classic rock" station and they play Guns and Roses Paradise City and other bands from the 80's.

I'm just about to turn 23, so I mean, this is kind of relative, but I was wearing a Nintendo shirt with a classic Nintendo controller on it when my little brother asked me "What's that on your shirt?"

A situation not made better when my girlfriend, knowing how to grind my gears, said, "Oh, that's a Sega Genesis controller."

I also enrolled in some fuck-off ethics class last fall with a bunch of freshman in it, and at one point we had to analyze Kurt Cobain's suicide note. Most of them didn't even know he wrote a suicide note. Oiy.

That's cause he didn't. We all know his wife was being controlled by aliens who made an evil robot clone of him and, in an effort to save humanity, Cobain shot it in the head with a shotgun. But then he realized that the robot had gained sentience, and as a form of self punishment, he decided to go with the aliens, who were also pretty down on the fact that their creation had become self-aware, and now they're traveling in outer space fighting crime and righting wrongs.

Also cause his wife was/is a whore.

It's fucked when you figure out that you can drink more beer or whiskey now than when you were young but that the hangovers now are so damn lethal that they scare you off of drinking altogether. That freaked me out far more than any of the grey hair ever did.

The literal disappearance of a lot of the music I listened to back in the 1980's bothers me too. Guilty admission, but as a wannabe faglord I liked a lot of that silly '80's Brit invasion pop stuff. I want to download tons of it but I can't find it anywhere anymore.

I was in the grocery store a few weeks ago and saw this girl with a HOT fucking body. Big tits, nice curves, everything... then I looked up at her face and saw that she couldn't have been more than 14-15, and realized my boner was totally illegal.





Is everyone mad here?
Of course they are, and you are too... otherwise, you wouldn't have come here.

That didn't stop you from taking her around the block a few times, did it? I know how you chicanos roll.

Man, as a 29-year-old who hangs out with mostly 23- to 27-year-olds, I could make a list. How about whenever someone doesn't understand the impact that Stat Wars had on cinema and the world in general? And I'm not counting the last three movies since no one in their right mind would see them. We're dangerously close to becoming a culture where Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader don't exist.

I'm fucked on this question - besides seeing (for a brief instant, maybe a 3 - 4 month fling) a girl 15 years younger than me (I'm 36), I feel old everytime I mention:

8 Track

Betamax

Laser Disc

and people have no idea what the fuck I'm talking about.

Me and the wife knew we were old when we were in the grocery store and we both stopped in the aisle and looked at each other as we listened to the fucking Cure on the in store music speakers. Not a muzak version, the real song.

That plus one of the girls we game with mentioned that the first president she remembers is Clinton, didn't help.

Nice work. I was seeing a girl last year that was 10 years younger than me. Only advice I have is to enjoy it while it lasts.

I hope you weren't 21 at the time.

And on the subject of grocery stores, I came to the "old" realization when I found myself at the grocery with my ex on a Friday night a couple months ago. We then went home, ate dinner, and watched TV. On a Friday night.

That was truly chilling.

It seems that music, like most of you, is where I feel old. I remember working with a 12-13yo kid in therapy back in 2005 who told me Snoop Dogg was Old Skool. I died a little that day.

But the last time I realized I'm getting old? My mom just became Medicare eligible last week. Sigh....

Na, she was though. "I keep getting older but they stay the same age.... literally."

But yea, I do feel old whenever I stretch and shit cracks all over my body. I call my knees, SnapCracklePop. Working two jobs that fucking define the word labor, doesn't help either...

For me, it's posts like this. As a 29-year-old, you weren't even alive when the original Star Wars came out. I saw it in the theater when it first came out - fuck, I'm old.

Also, when 13 Days came out, my wife was assistant manager at the theater, and there were kids working at the theater that didn't get it at all. They had little recognition (most had none) of the Cold War. Same thing with Miracle. They couldn't grasp why the 1980 US Olympic hockey team was such a big deal. Young fucking whippersnappers...

If I realized I was old before, I'm royally fucked now. . .This girl at work (a corrections officer in the jail) has been inviting me to go out with her, coming on to me and what have you. Now that's not a bad thing by ANY means, but she's only 18 YEARS OLD. She'll be 19 next month, but I realized, "Fuck! I was a senior in High School when she was born!"

That's not gonna stop me from tappin' dat ass (as they say), but I was telling her about Fat Albert cartoons, and she asked me with the straightest of faces, "You mean they used to have cartoons about the movie with that guy from Keenan & Kel? I used to love that show when I was a kid!"

I remember being 23 and watching Keenan & Kel (sue me, I liked the show), but it made me seriously realize that I'm getting old.

She probably just wants you to buy her and her friends beer.

Saturday morning Fat Albert. Back when shows were just trying you Sugar Puffs, Sugar Smacks, and Sugar Frosted Flakes. And Kool Aid with real sugar. Fuck High Fructose Corn Syrup.

Or, I could just be a good looking dirty old man.

Fat Albert, Super Friends and loads of crunch berries. . .a perfect saturday when I was a kid

ETA: She's a corrections officer in the jail; I'm a cop. I think the whole contributing to the delinquency of a minor thing is out the window here - just sayin'

4 weeks ago I started playing basketball at a local rec center. I'm in decent enough shape for being 28 and sitting in front of a PC all day at work...but me and my friends got beat by a bunch of high school kids.

Although the one good thing about being old...this past week we won every game. The kids are still in better shape, but with age comes knowledge.
