    You have a shower and/or bath not when you should or when you feel like it but when your joints feel like it.

    Come to think of it you might be getting old when you start wasting you time explaining the past to younger people.

    You're getting old when you are considered healthy for your age, and yet you need five doctors or other health care professionals to keep you "running."

    You know you're getting old when you start to actually enjoy the shows at theme parks more than the rides themselves

    When you tell someone something funny you did in your past, and then realize that it was over 30 years ago

    Your ears start stealing the hair from your head.

    The music you listened to as a teen is now classic rock, but then again what else could it be.

    the existence of the internet, tablets and most portable electronics

    A lot of these posts are about being old rather than getting old, you know you are getting old when other people seem young and naive. Their attitude towards you changes as well, instead of calling you a 'know it all' they start calling you 'wise'. I am not sure what happens if you are ignorant and stupid, I never was.
    Hidden Content

    A whole swathe of entertainment, all sorts of lengths, all sorts of stories, all with that 'Olly' twist.

    When you realize the people you've loved, lost, and taken for granted will never return. When you realize that the 'you' that experienced all those wonderful times is a different person than you are now.

    When the feeling of always missing out subsides and you turn in at 9pm on Friday night.

    When you choose reading, sipping coffee, or getting a chore done instead of pleasuring yourself.

    When you realize how often you repeat those 'One Time...' stories and nobody cares anymore.

    When you throw your back out checking out the gray hairs on your danglers.

    When you embrace the stream of ever-changing time and give yourself over to change.

    When you don't recognize photos of yourself anymore.
