When you are older than nearly every professional athlete. When does everyone else know which signals they are getting old?

I remember when I got older than all the professional athletes. That's when you start to consider billiards and bowling to be professional sports. But then, you get older than all those guys, too. That's when you start to consider total-knee replacements and dialysis to be professional sports. But then, you get older than all those guys, too.

Other tips:
You can't find your glasses without your glasses. After searching around, you realize they're already on your face.
You fart every time you pick something up from the ground. The humor of this wore off long, long ago.
Your doctor looks about as old as the kid you pay to mow your lawn. And he explains things to you using simple words and talking slowly. And you appreciate this.
You remember your history teacher explaining the difference between impeachment and resignation.

You can't remember things from 40 years ago, 40 months ago, 40 weeks ago, 40 days ago, 40 hours ago, or 40 minutes ago (still okay on seconds).

Worse, you can't remember when things happened in those same time frames. Time flies and creeps at the same time.

You can't complete a conversation without someone who can finish your sentences and remember your words for you.

Thanks for bringing this up.

When I started seeing the obituaries of my friend’s parents and my parent’s friends.

When the face in the mirror no longer resembled the self-image I carried around in my head.

When I had to consider medication interactions instead of just taking a pill.

... if you fall, you have take a few minutes to get up. It's not because you need recovery, it's the inventory.

My knee hurts; no that hurt before.

My elbow hurts; no that's not new either.

When you start shrugging off things, opinions and events that would have driven you mad five years ago, because you no longer care.

In short - tired of this s**t.

You consider buying a nice hat so raindrops and snowflakes don't annoyingly land directly on your scalp.

When you have to keep moving the rule book further away to keep the print in focus.

Or....

When you read the title of this thread thinking I have nothing to contribute, then upon reading it realize most of it applies to you.




Edit: Because you wouldn't know English is my native language.

Losing your train of thought mid-sentence - multiple times each day.

If I don't write it down I don't remember it.

When you get so cynical Devil's Dictionary reads like Peanuts.
To read, you have to take off your reading glasses.
You spend on average three hours per day in the toilet.
You have more cavities than teeth.

When people who weren't born when you graduated high school now have kids.

When you realize that all the good-looking girls are young enough to be your daughter.

When you stop blaming anyone other than yourself for your problems.

When your parents and their generation (aunts, uncles) start dying, and you realize that your generation is next.

I had to write a performance review for a coworker. While looking over her personal page on our company's intranet, I saw a funny icon. "What's that?" I wondered. I clicked, and it meant "People who are younger than <company>."

I was already an adult when this company was founded. I remember the splash it made when it was spinning up. And...she wasn't even born yet at that time, and she is my coworker. I'm getting old.
