It’s happening! We’re actually getting old.
I know 35 isn’t old per sé and some days I still feel really young but it’s just small things that have happened that have made me think about how old I maybe am getting.
These things have happened lately which are definitely signs that it’s time to don the blue rinse and buy a bag of wether’s originals.
1 – 10 year olds are now graduates…
Ok, they are not 10 but when I spotted some of the new grads recently they looked like they shouldn’t even be driving never mind graduating. The same goes for police officers and doctors of late.
Each time I see someone who is around the 21 mark I just can’t actually believe they are adults.
2 – Teenagers become sympathetic
A question was asked of me by a teenager when they were explaining what sort of music… imagine the tone if you will ‘Oh, do you know who Drake is?’ I’m 35, not dead…! I have the internet and know how to use google and snapstagram or whatever you kids use these days.
3 – Hangovers from less than 2 drinks are REAL
I had a cocktail and a glass of prosecco, I wasn’t even slightly inebriated but the day after I had the WORST hangover of my life…! I really am gutted…I didn’t even get the joy of feeling a little drunk beforehand.
I don’t generally drink and my last taste of alcohol was in May (5 months ago) so I do understand that it could have something to do with that but come on… seriously!! WHY DID I FEEL SO BAD???!!!???
(I have heard since that a fellow over 30’s that drank the same as me felt exactly the same the next day after drinking the same)
4 – I LOVE SLIPPERS!
What has happened to you that makes you feel old? Or has it not happened yet?
