You know you're getting old when...

  • You go to a Young Alumni event for your alma mater and notice how young everyone looks.
  • When making a purchase at the bookstore where you attend graduate school, the clerk asks you if you get a faculty discount.
  • Your friends own houses.
  • You hardly ever stay out until last call anymore.
  • Where there was once a triceps, there is now arm flab.

I bought something at the BC cafeteria once and the snotty little 19 year old behind the counter asked me if I was eligible for the faculty discount. I almost decked her. Seriously.

This might be even worse than going to Chi Chi's when you are 16 and being mistaken for a 10 year old on a field trip.

bars in boston close so early, you must be getting old if you can't hang til last call.

You know you're getting old when a friend tells you she's pregnant and you're completely happy for her.

You know you're in total denial when your doctor asks if you've ever been pregnant and you're all "PREGnant? I'm too young for that!"

Eileen, as a scientist you should call that arm flab by its scientific name - bingo wings.

oh noooooo! I have bingo wings! I think they're still in the vestigial phase so maybe I can still get rid of them.
