You know you’re getting old when… Part 2

By Glen Turner – Special to the Sydenham Current

You know you’re getting old when…

Well, I had such a nice response to that piece (read it here). Many people suggested others and I thought of a few myself.

You know you’re getting old when…

– You still refer to new record releases as “albums”.

– The thermal socks and long johns come out earlier every year.

– You know that ‘long johns’ are not just donuts!

– You remember those little wax bottles with pop inside.

– You really don’t want that next Birthday to arrive quickly.

– Your definition of winter sports is balancing on the ice and snow so that you don’t fall.

– You have had blocks of ice delivered to your house for your fridge.

– You used to have to get up out of the chair to change TV channels.

– You knew the names and stats of every member of your favourite hockey team.

– You hesitated to ask what the heck ‘Bluetooth’ is.

– You watch a recent video, fairly new, of one of your favourite ‘oldies’ bands… and they all look like your grandfather!

– Many of your former students are bald, gray and have grandchildren of their own!

– You go to funerals now… never weddings.
