I'm old

I've recently discovered that I'm old. It's been creeping up on me lately, but now it's just obvious. Here's why:

a) I think I'm constantly talking about how something on my body hurts, whether it be my head, my shoulders, my legs, etc. This may just make me a hypochondriac or an annoying jerk, but I think it makes me sound old.

b) I have thoughts like, "How do those kids only get a few hours of sleep one night and want to party again the next night? Don't they get tired?"

c) I usually eat immediately when I get home from work (or from aerobicizing). When I come home from work, I usually walk in the door around 5:30. By 6, I'm eating my dinner.

d) On most Fridays, I'm good until 10 PM. Then I collapse in a heap on my bed, wondering how I got by on so little sleep in college.

e) A lot of people under 20 bother me. Not all, but most. They're loud, obnoxious, have no regard for others, and usually have more money than me. Bitches.

It sounds to me like you're a victim of the working world. Until you are older that I am, consider yourself young. (Even if you feel old.) ;)

something on my body has been hurting since I was 15, so that's not a valid "I'm getting old" moment (so say I, who will not be able to move by the time I turn 30...)
