The constant throbbing in my left knee.

My friend reminding me that it's over 21 years since we met on our first day of secondary school.

Being 8 years too old for the Brook Clinic.

Being a great-aunt (as opposed to a great aunt).

Grey pubes.

 

A friends reunited email from "my first love" telling me she's just had a kid, and the realisation that it was 13 years since we split up.

 

Mostly grey pubes, though.

Moaning about money

 

Moaning about the younger generation

 

Moaning about going out

 

Moaning about not having any tea bags left

 

Paying a mortgage

 

Going even more grey

 

Falling asleep after sex

 

Watching Nature and Travel programs and enjoying them

 

Turning the music down

Going grey.

 

At 27, I'm concerned by the amount I have, especially around the temples. Everytime I look, there's more fuckers there.

 

That and doing stuff my old man would do.

Shagging your mum*?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

*If that oversteps any boundaries, or you mum died in a horrific way, I apologise. I am loaded on beer and cheese.

An early night is a welcome chance to curl up with the cat and a book rather than the opening gambit to an all-night sex session with the missus.

 

Radio 4 is great to listen to, except for when they have that young-voiced bloke doing the shipping forecast. Sod off, youngie. The shipping forecast works best with an elderly Scottish accent.

 

Only drinking 2 pints in the pub whilst watching the footy. Not because you're skint, but because that's all you fancy.

 

Getting out of bed and stretching you legs sounds like someone playing the maraccas.

Knowing that despite having lived in Scotland for 20 years , I've probably lived in Liverpool longer than most people on this forum.

Having an enemy list with over 300 names despite not seeing 1/3 of them for decades.

Making an involuntary groan every time I get out of a chair

 

I go for sucking air through the teeth, rather than groan.

 

Unless its me knees.

I groan with relief when I sit down.

 

I've been known to do all these aswell, and I'm only 18. :whoops:

You don't need to be old / getting old to do that!
