I turn 62 this month and I’m starting to realize I’m not as young as I used to be. There are some red flags. You know you’re getting older when:

You’re watching a family sitcom and realize that you agree with the parents more than the kids and that the kids are doing stupid and reckless behavior.

You realize how far you have to scroll down to find your birth year in a drop-down menu.

You make “getting up” and “sitting down” noises.

You need to start googling words and slang people are using because you have no idea what LOL means.

“Celebrities” are advertising on TV and you have no idea who they are.

Going out on a Friday or Saturday night feels more like a hassle than fun.

All of your favorite bands have retired.

The music you used to listen to is now playing in an elevator

Seinfeld debuted more than 30 years ago.

E.T. phoned home 40 years ago.

The Karate Kid is now older than Mr. Miyagi.

Mick Jagger is a great-grandfather.

And finally, perhaps the worst sign: when a hangover lasts days not hours!
