When the restaurant doesn't ask, they just give you the senior discount.

Knowing that my newest pair of socks is probably older than most of you all.

Remembering back, and realizing it's been a long time.

My age?

What makes me feel old is that 2008/09/10 is now around a decade ago.

Edit:I'll say more. You know, kids back then are adults now and stuff like that. Also, Minecraft is 10 years old.

minecraft and skyrim devoured a decade of my life

I play tf2. There are kids playing who are younger than the game itself.

My swollen goiter...

All sorts of aches and pains.

But mostly, it's watching kids growing up now and they almost always have a phone or tablet in hand, or a game controller or similar. The backyards and neighborhoods of suburbia are much quieter today, and somehow that feels less welcoming as well.

I can remember playing outside all the time when I was younger, we had no tablets or anything at the time. This was about 10 years ago.

I think Gallagher said it best... You know you're getting old when they start playing Led Zeppelin on easy listening radio. (Note, I couldn't find the exact quote, but close enough going by memory)
