You know your getting older when....You go to Wallys and the first thing you do is head to the machine to check your blood pressure.

or...One of the first daily talks include how good/bad your morning dump was/wasn't.

You feel like a newborn baby, no hair, no teeth and you just wet your pants.

The only cute girls "eyeing your stuff" are the nurse's aides checking your catheter.

... you somehow have made the passage from "wierd" to "eccentric".

How about having college students walk into your classroom and tell you THEIR parents took your classes (fortunately I remembered them!)...

getting older when...

getting older when... when your high school students ask about your first computer (Tandy TRS 80 Model 1) and their response to your reply is either a blank stare or "HUH?"

getting older when... when your high school students look at the typewriters in the rear of the lab and ask, "who would ever want to use one of those?" -- these typewriters are the last ten from the typing lab that pre-dated the current computer lab and were new during my first year of teaching.
