    I just got a wave that when my baby neices reach ten or twenty theyd be saying "way back in the early 1900s."

    Something to think about... Way in the 1800s... 1700s makes you feel old, huh

    I think I felt old the first time I heard Alice In Chains on the classic rock station.

    I think you're getting old when you buy something in a store that requires a certain minimum age and they ask for your ID, you feel flattered instead of insulted.

    My son said he got real nervous when he was 30 and said... "I remember how different it was when I was 20". Old, apparently, is now at a younger age :D

    One of my great grandmothers said she wouldn't be old until she was 90. She died when she was 89.

    The other drove around in a car with flames on it that she had bought from a high school boy with her Bingo money. She drove that thing until they took it away from her when she was legally declared blind in her early 90s.

    You get old when you say you do. I think my oldest son was born as an old man.

    Don't feel bad. I look ten years younger. When I went to get a beer for my aunt, the woman behind the counter did a double take of my ID, stood there for a min, then left. I see her often and should have said, "it's okay. You're not the only one."

    My husband is 33, and had someone locally get upset with him because she thought he was a kid with a fake ID.

    You're old when events you could never before reliably anticipate become the predictable outcomes of situations you've seen all your life, but never understood well enough to grasp how they were connected with each other. When most of the time you have an approximate, but mostly accurate idea of what's about to happen, you're old.

    I felt old for the first time when a girl in her 20s offered me her seat on the Underground.

    When I look in the mirror now I have to make myself confront how bloody ancient I look, because from inside, at least on good days, I don't feel that different from when I was 40. I have to confess I do this partly to stop me eyeing up the women and chatting them up, which is increasingly ridiculous on my part - and increasingly baffling to them:oops:! It's also to make me stop and think before attempting physical tasks that I once easily do but now could result in injury.

    I meant when I heard them on a classic rock station.

    And maybe nowadays, the tight leather trousers might not be as advisable.

    Ah, another way to feel old... when you see a peek of a celebrity you lusted after in youth...now looks totally unpalatable.

    Yup, my teenaged son is old by these standards...

    I refer to everything older than 20 years as "from the last millennium". (Last century is just as valid but last millennium throws people off. :D)

    You are old when you get a referral to the archaeologist.

    Now I feel old, really old, about as old as my computed biological age.

    We were at an exhibition about age, ageing and teamwork. From various tests and questionnaires they computed my social age at 36, my "felt" age at 44, my experience age at 88 and my biological age at 121.

    A few years back, my oldest son asked me, in all seriousness, if there were dinosaurs when I was a kid.

    I told him no, not for me. Those were around for his grandfather's youth. And then I handed him the phone so he could call and ask him about it.

    Sometimes I think "This album only came out a few years ago" and check the actual date and it says (eg) 1994.
    Then I have to sit down.
