You Know You're Getting Old When ...
...you find yourself standing next to your car with your keys in your hand, but you can't remember whether you're going somewhere or you just got back.
...you walk out to the parking lot of the mall, and not only did you forget where you parked, but you also forgot what car you were driving.
...your daughter takes you out to dinner, and the cashier takes one look and gives you both senior discounts.
...everything hurts, and what doesn't hurt doesn't work.
...you reach down to pull up your wrinkled stockings and realize you don't have any on.
...when you raise your arm, and you find your "muscle" is now on the bottom side.
...when you have as students the grandchildren of your former students.
...when you sit down to the breakfast table, and the snap, crackle, pop you hear isn't your breakfast cereal.
...when you bend over to tie your shoes and ask yourself, "Is there anything else I need to do while I'm down here?"
"Inside every old person is a young one wondering what happened."
