You know you’re getting old when…

By Glen Turner – Special to the Sydenham Current

You know you’re getting old when…

– You use A535 and Voltaren more than you use sunscreen.

– Your Doctors look like they’re still in school! They’re so young!

– You don’t just see a ‘Doctor’… because the ones you see end in -ologist.

– You can remember candy cigarettes.

– You remember having a party line, and know what that is!

– You remember metal ice-cube trays.

– You can tell people about milk in glass bottles… delivered to your door!

– You still have many of your old 45 rpm records and LP’s.

– You can remember getting the first TV in your house!

– You can still tell stories about sneaking into the drive-in movies… in the trunk of a car!

– Pop only came in glass bottles.

– You start believing that the change in weather can be diagnosed by your OWN aches and pains.

– You remember what a ‘coal shute’ was. And shoveling it in the basement.

– You can picture the guy with the cart and the bell who came through the neighbourhood sharpening knives, hatchets and axes.

– ‘Home Economics’ class was NOT an option.

Please feel free to add to the list. 😊
