    List a thing or two that lets you know that you're getting older. Not more mature, but physically older, ya know when those bones start cracking or you ache a little more lol.

    I know I'm getting older, bowling hurts my thumbs & wrist. Used to bowl all night. Football with the guys on Satudays makes for body aching Sundays while watching real football players

    When you're putting new tin on the roof and you slip, then slide down, and crash onto the ground. It's right then you realize that you don't bounce as well as you used to.

    I used to wear high heels all day long and then go out at night and I'd be fine. Now I wear them for an hour and my feet ache. I still wear 'em though :)

    When I went back to the family farm at age 35, and spent several hours driving a big John Deere and my back HURT. When I was a teen I would sit up in the cab of that very same tractor with the A/C and the stereo going and drive that thing all day long, day after day and it never bothered me! Now I know why my dad always wanted me to drive that tractror instead of him!

    You know I must be lucky I don't feel any different today than I did when I was 20. However I have started using some words and phrases that my mother used to use and that is a bit unsettling to me or as she would say..."Well that's a fine how do you do!"

    Been happenin.
    Ouch!

    University students are starting to seem like a different species ... and they look at me like I am.
    Deal breaker. Ah thot U wer 16.

    Lately, I've had a sore shoulder. Twenty years ago, these things were two-day wonders.
    But this, though getting better, has lasted a month.
    Went to the doc.
    He told me it was bursitis.
    Holy shite! The only person I know who gets bursitis is my aunt, who is 40 years older than me.
    I think I get this picture.

    I can't eat an entire large King Arthur's Special Round Table pizza without feeling like shit the next morning.

    I need to trim my nose hair when I trim my sideburns.

    When friends kids that used to sit on your lap and fall asleep now have kids in high school.

    When you run into friends from the past and they look like old people.

    Looking over the top of your eye wear so you can read, and you wear progressive.

    You start sentences out with "When I was a kid".

    Oh yes, the white hairs, the thinning hair, the longer recovery time from injury, not waking up with morning wood every morning, people calling me "sir", lack of passion about working out. Etc.
