You Know You’re Getting Old When…

December 16, 2011 ‐ By jaebi

It happens to the best of us. Especially the best of us. Every single moment of your fabulous life, you’re getting older. Sure, you can lolligag and pretend it’s not happening, squander your youth doing and worrying about things (really) old people know is dumb, but as days turn into weeks, and months pile on the years, you’ll wake up one morning and wonder where the time went.

Ideally plenty of wisdom comes with age, but you get a whole lot more out of the deal too. Old(er) age comes with plenty of those tale-tell signs that a rocking chair and pilgrimage to a warm and sunny climate where your bones don’t snack, crackle and pop is your inevitable destiny.

Oh yea, you’re getting old, young person. And you KNOW it when,



"You Need a Nap"

You need a nap.

When part of getting ready for a big night out with the girls includes a nap, you’ve definitely getting oldish. They say we go out the way we come in. Babies have weak muscles and frail limbs. So do old people. Children wear diapers. As do many old folks. Likewise, kids do better with naps. And so do you, old lady.

    You know you’re getting old when you don’t listen to the radio anymore because you think all of the music is just noise

    talk about REAL situations, you know your getting older when you can’t read small print like you use to, heads don’t turn like they use to, hair is graying, body doesn’t respond to brain commands so easily. Hello.

    This article is so funny but so true.  I was afraid to read because I was afraid to hear the truth.  But, I am glad I did because, well it just happens to be true.  So funny it made my night.  Lol  🙂

      At first I thought POS meant “piece of ish”.  Oops!  But I’ve always loved naps, even as a teenager.
