How boring is my life?

I don't think I can top my last post.

I'll just have to wait for something weird or funny to happen to me. When it does, I'll let you know!

Peapod is coming any minute so maybe I'll have a good story about the delivery man showing me his privates or grabbing one of my boobs.

One can only hope.

In the meantime, let's play a game.

It's called..."You know you're old when.."

I'll start.

You know you're old when you are actually somewhat flattered that some freak in the Foodtown produce section flirted with you.


You know you're old when...you watch the MTV music awards and you don't know who the hell 90% of the performers are...and most of them annoy the hell out of you.

You know you're old when you listen to talk and news radio exclusively in the car (I mean minivan). (With an occasional book on tape when you're feeling really wild!)

You know you're old when one of your thrills in life is peeking out the window at the antics of your wild divorced next door neighbor and her new
boyfriend.

(Man they had a wicked fight last night!)

Just call me Mrs. Kravitz.

This Mrs. Kravitz






(Not Lenny's mom!)


Okay...now it's YOUR turn.

You know you're old when your bedtime is earlier than the time when you used to leave to go out clubbing.

You know you're old when you have to mute the tv when commercials come on because they are just too loud.

Also, when you are no longer so and so's hot older sister, but instead "are you so and so's mom?"

Yeah, that's what did it for me. I have an 18yo brother.

You know you're old when half way through posting your comment you forgot what you were going to say.

Mama Wheaton said...

ou know you're old when your kids can't believe you used to have to dial a phone and you couldn't take it to your room for privacy.

Kate said...

You know you are old when you remember having a "party line" on your phone. That is when you have to wait for other people to get off the line in order to make a call.
Or you had to go to the shopping area and watch TV in a store window since very few had a TV

My husband loves to call me Mrs. Kravitz. We had these WILD neighbors across the street and they did everything. I mean everything. (They moved away) I would peek around the curtains and say "Hunny, you're not going to believe what they're doing now." He would say, "Get out of the window Gladys." I didn't think it was very funny.

Paige said...

You also know you are old when you know that Lenny Kravitz' real mom is the friend on the Jeffersons---Mrs Willis.

Also when you wear tennis shoes with your dress pants like you are a mall walker--I did that crap today, for real.

JyLnC said...

You know you are old when every evening you and your dh watch Wheel of Fortune while eating dinner. Sigh.

Belle (from Life of a...) said...

You know you're old when you start sounding just like your mother...I scare myself to death about ten times a day anymore.

Kate said...

OLD!!

You may be old when you have a missing finger, can’t get through airport security for a plate in one arm, a wired up leg, repaired shoulder, two new hips, two new knees, working on your third aorta and your wife says you need your head examined (literally). It’s all a state of mind! Today I may play tennis or golf take a photography trip or go for a bike ride.
Really kid, stop whining, suck it up and enjoy.

I'm feeling boring these days too!
You know you are old when you have to increase the font size on your computer screen so you can read it more easily!

P said...

I'm so going to top you! You know you're old when you carry tweezers in your car to pluck that random facial hair every now and then that you see in your visor mirror when you're driving in the bright light!:)

Tara R. said...

You know you're old when you hear your mother's voice coming out of your mouth, saying things you promised you NEVER would.

Impoverished Preppy said...

You know you're old when your students have never heard of Christian Slater OR the movie Heathers... because they weren't even BORN when the movie came out. Yikes!

NJDecorator said...

You kow you are old when the music your son listens to is mixed with a song you loved in high school.

Mom on the Run said...

You know you're old when you laughed at every one of those comments because you could totally relate. I had one today in my blog post....

You know you're old when Bobby Ewing and Scarecrow (Patrick Duffy and Bruce Boxleitner) are the adorably tolerant husbands to a couple of bickering mothers of a couple in love on a Hallmark Channel movie.

La Petite Redhead said...

You know you're old when you say "Kids these days"

You know you're old when you are now waking up in the mornings at the time you used to come home.

You know you're old when you are considering getting DVR just so you can go to bed at 9pm and not miss any good shows.

You know you're old when your child tells you that "You walk just like Nan", meaning hunched over and slow.

Brie said...

You know you are old when you remember the fun that came with crank calling. Caller id has ruined a lot of fun for the this generation

I actually did a post on this last year and here were some of mine:

You know you're old when you actually look forward to your annual check up because you have a lot more questions for the doctor than usual.

You know you're old when you hear your grandma go on and on about her aches and pains and ailments, and you find yourself nodding in complete understanding.

: (

Tickled Pink And Green said...

But here is the BIG ONE for me:

You know you're old when...YOU ARE NOW OLDER THAN THE NEW PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES.

Oh that one just kills me.

Wow.

Vodka Mom said...

you know you're old when you know who Mrs. Kravitz is!!!!!
you know you're old when all the newscasters on TV look TOO DAMN YOUNG to be nightly newscasters!!
YOu know you're old when the kids are all at friend's houses, or somewhere else, and all you and your hubby want to do is sleep!!!!!

Jaina said...

Lol. I don't think I can top that just yet. Give me a few years. ;)

HeatherPride said...

I'm a talk radio junkie too, so I guess I'm ancient!

Let's see....you know you're old when, during your last pregnancy, you were classified as "advanced maternal age" - why not just stick a scalpel in my heart, doc!
