Damn I’m old!

young-voice1

Do you ever wake up one day and think Damn I’m old!! I’ve had a couple of moments like that recently and it’s a bit of a bummer! I mean I don’t ever want to be my 18 yr old self, not really! I’d like to go back and have a chat to the younger me and tell myself to study more and party less but I know I would ignore myself and party on!

No the feeling of being old is the little things that are breaking down.  My knees hurt and my joints are all creaky. My hair is thinning and that single thing is totally bumming me out! If you look at my google search history you’ll see lots of fun searching on how to fix or reverse thinning hair.  Nothing says OLD like searches like that!

I’m also tutting at aggressive drivers and mutter under my breath that girls are going to catch their death of cold going out half naked. High heeled shoes boggle my mind and what’s up with those high waisted jeans and half shirts? I get irritated when someone parks their car in front of my house for more than 24 hours *shakes fist in the air* 

I thought I would list my top Oh SHIT I’m old moments

  • When you realise your boobs are no longer perky
  • Realising Fast Times at Ridgemont High came out 34 yrs ago!
  • Seeing teenage girls wearing things you wore in your teens- hello harem pants!
  • Reading glasses
  • Finding my first grey pube! (yah I went there!)

    I have to say that I try not to do this too much – although I do notice the achy parts of my body these days!

    So now I’m sitting here wondering if people dye their pubes. Which is my ‘oh shit I’m old’ moment, because it’s Friday night, yet I have nothing better to do!

      I’m thinking it’s why they shave :O

    Look on the bright side, if you marry someone older, you’ll always be young in comparison.

    My kids make me feel old when they make me say things to them that my mother said to me. I’m 35 next time and I think that’s bothering me more than any previous birthday!

    I went to a club on Saturday night – and realised that the babies who were born the year I first went to that nightclub, could legally have been there on Saturday night . . .
