When grey hairs stated appearing downstairs was the point where I said damn I'm getting old...
When i saw myself in the mirror wearing my new slippers for the first time. Feel like such a grandad! But they are comfy.
Don't be ashamed of slippers, they are for kings!
You should get some bears
got some for Xmas - love them so warm
Teaching a martial arts class to a bunch of teenagers and for whatever reason I mentioned Madonna. Not one of them had any idea who I was talking about.
Everyday I make myself ‘sound’ old, how you ask?? Well my partner of ten years, soon to be wife just happens to be 17 years younger, runs marathons, trains with the British military, does Tough Mudders like it’s a shopping trip and is constantly saying who or what to anything I mention pre 1995!!! As do all her (now my) close friends, so I’m constantly having to explain who The Two Ronnies were or Morcambe and Wise, Cannon and Ball, Blackadder!! Basically anything or anybody who was around in the 70s or 80s
As for looking old, well when I met my missus (on a beach) she and all her mates said that I was 28 when I was in fact 38 result!! She was golden brown wearing a skimpy bikini with a body a 38 year old could only dream about or search for on the net
Now I’m old, fat, bald, everything hurts at least once a week but I never forget the saying “You’re only as old as you feel” and every day and night I feel 17 years younger instantly
She's clearly a lucky girl
and not you
Like most reading these replies hit home lol.
ha ha 100% remember those as loved them to bits. We used to sell them in the shop so had them regularly. Used to buy them in packs of 12 from the warehouse lol.
I'm told I don't look my age but then shaving my head has helped in that department (as started losing it at 17 anyway..thanks dad!). But although I do suffer with permanent back ache and arthritis in my feet, I still drive some nice motors and dress well and just enjoy it till he comes knocking.
Brill stiggly..remember it well

If you can remember when Snickers were originally called Marathons, then you are old.
I’m 39 - yes I AM old.
I was going to say something, but I can’t remember what it was.
I have recently learnt that walking from one room to another is the time most people will forget what they were about to do.
Getting the odd white hairs now at 42. Never had to think about that before.
42 ain’t bad, who remembers Fabrizio Ravanelli? The man had white hair at 21!
I was diagnosed with Chronic Ulcerative Colitis in 2018 I’m 44 now and I really feel it now- I often think I can’t see myself being able to work for another 24 years I’m that fatigued and tired
I also had a bad motorcycle crash in 2000 and hurt my back- I was told I had degeneration of the spine by +20 years and then had a slipped disc in 2018 and that still plays up and my knees hurt- doesn’t help I’m 6’5” though and 17 stone
I genuinely feel 60 - but I carry on- lift my head up and keep going for my daughter,wife and our future plans in our lifes- the world keeps spinning and I’m making the most of it
