You know you're getting older when...
you've prepaid your obituary announcement in the local paper.

Speaking of which, just to have a wee bit of fun, I wrote up the comments I would make about several older friends at their funerals, then emailed them to them to ask them to edit them and add/delete anything they felt they should.

Got some interesting responses to say the least. Particularly from a brother in law - he wasn't sure he should take it seriously, or what . Okay, so I did happen to mention that I wasn't trying to spook them or anything, but given they are all so much older than me, and thus highly likely that I will outlive them...................

Also got several versions of what they intend to say about me back. Hmmm, now the race is on to see who can outlive the others.

So I guess you know you are getting older when your focused on outliving your buddies so you can say what you want about them without them having the chance to say what they want about you

You can't remember the last time you laid on the floor to watch television.

...and realized the reason you laid on the floor in the first place was to be closer to the dial to change back and forth between the five available channels.

Hi, actually you do remember the last time that you laid on the floor to watch television because that was the time that you couldn't get back up without the help of your spouse.

actually you know damn sure you're getting older when you go to a post on a website that says 'you know you're getting older when'. and more important you are fascinated by it.

You Know You're getting older when...

You both go to bed and get up way ahead of the chickens.

...yp\ou ask another adult if she went to Space Camp as a kid, too-- and she says "No, but my mom did!" (This reaclly happened to me a few weeks ago. Until then, I was trying to think of 39 as more advanced late youth than middle age....

…you get the same sensation from a rocking chair that you used to get from a roller coaster.

When...you frequent the fast-food stops along the highway, but seldom for food.

Cheese and crackers got all muddy, I KNOW I KNOW......
