How to know when you're starting to age

It's Friday, and until what seemed like very recently, I liked to kick off the weekend by going out with friends and hitting the hooch. As has been my past habit, tonight I drank throughout the evening.

However, my tastes have changed -- I probably put down a quart and a half of milk. And the funny thing is that this is a normal Friday for me. At least I'll feel good for my training ride. Gotta wake up at 5, but that should be no problem.

You'll be the first to know when I start to age.


I'll age with my heels dragging.

When you think you're younger coworkers are nuts because they stay up until 11pm every night and wake up only 30 minutes before coming to work.

Hold on one bleepin' minute! The 80's weren't that long ago, I'm a kid at heart. It's my eyes and body that tell me otherwise. Oh and the kids...."Daddy did you watch Hanna Montana when you was a kid?"

When you're 'droping the hammer', not wanting a pair of cyclists to pass you on the road - and when they do, you realize you're older than both their ages put together....young whippersnappers!

I recently had a cute 20-something nurse calling me sweetie, etc ("just get up on the table for me honey") - and it wasn't flirting. More like the way she'd speak to an old man........

Kinda depressing, but it's been a while since a complete stranger called me sweetie, honey, etc, so I'll take it

Sounds like she was Southern.
Hon, sweetie, darlin', are standard forms of address.
