Signs that I'm getting old...the funniest email I've ever gotten...

Real Estate Appraiser with PB APPRAISALS

This was probably one of the funniest emails I have ever gotten and so I had to share it.  I hope I don't offend anyone but it was just way too accurate for my 40 something year old bones...let me know which ones are your favorites or...if you can't relate to them, let me know that, I guess :-( 

I might not be looking for sympathy but, some camaraderie would be nice !!

Personally, I think that number 14, 17 and 26...oh brother, I'm getting old...

 This isn't totally off topic for my friends in the dog lover's group since it talks about what we feed our dogs!!  Hope you don't mind and that you enjoy this humour

I was talking to one of my clients the other day who has a kid in college and he was saying how all they do is drink and party and then I asked him what he did in college and he just grinned and said the same thing, but now he said he is the responsible one and has to try to teach the error of his ways to his son. (LOL)

Marie, I agree...thanx for stopping by!!

Rich, that's what I said!!  That is enough of a date for me (and has been for quite some time!!)

Mike, I agree, most fit this bod!!

Chris, thanx you younging...I'm surprised at some of your choices, you must be very mature for your age!!

Todd, Yup the same thing we all did in college...had lots of fun and kept going home when the money ran out!!  sometimes I wish I could do that now!!

William, yea, they followed lots of us around!!

Cynthia, I think it is on target too, I had the same reaction !!!  hahahaha

Hey Patrice- thanks for the chuckle!  And I have you beat by a decade- I'm a 50- something!  So, I don't watch the weather channel, but we don't have a lot of weather in SoCal.  I may almost hum in the elevator, but they really aren't my favorite songs.  I still have 2 teen aged drivers, so insurance is still way up.  And i am with Todd, I dread what my son, who is going to college as a freshman next month, will do.  Not likely to be anything his Mom or Dad didnt' do!!

OMG, the elevator thing happened to me recently! I was kind of humming along thinking ''this is a nice song, what is it??" and then it hit me -- it was Fleetwood Mac, You Can Go Your Own Way. Kind of sweet and smarmy. But, it didn't keep me from singing along. Same thing in the grocery store -- I sing along until I pass someone I don't really want to know how old I am!

Patrice- Honestly I think alot more of these are maturity based that really age based lol... My fiancee is only 20 and almost all of them fit her :-D So yeah definitly don't feel old from this list... or maybe you should feel really old from this list? Just Kidding :-D Your only as old as you feel :-D

More Fun than not - But I still don't think I'm old, I have just adjusted to the situation.

OK, I think every one of those applied to me. I must be older than dirt, but really I swear I am only 44?!? So what gives?

 I noticed the other day that they were playing the B52's in the grocery store and thought "Wow that is cool" Then I realized that is 'oldies/retro' for today's youth culture. What happened to being alternative and cutting edge?!?

All I can say is getting old is better than the alternative... pushing up daisy's!!

Keep smiling & singing in the store!
