You Know You're Officially Old When ...

  • You walk into the room and wonder why
  • You talk to the condiments
  • You stomp around the house asking everyone where are your glasses only to discover their on your head
  • You don't care if the neighbours can hear you
  • You realise that your parents had a point or two
  • The cartoons on TV are all shouty and weird
  • People are actually looking up to you
  • Your memories seem to be a movie of another time involving other people
  • You talk about cassette tapes knowing no-one uses them but without realising a lot of people don't even know what they are
  • Cheesy "feel good movies" are just what the doctor ordered
  • You use phrases such as "just what the doctor ordered"
  • You tell everyone that music isn't as good as it used to be - it's all retro, copying, been done before and derative
