Tell me you’re getting old without actually telling me you’re getting old #SOL21

I am often amused at the “Tell me you’re ______ without actually telling me you’re _____” posts on Twitter.

Tell me you were born in the 90s without actually telling me you were born in the 90s.

Tell me you have a dog without actually telling me you have a dog.

Tell me you are a teacher without actually telling me you are a teacher.

Lately, I notice I’m aging. Instead of getting bitter or crotchety, it makes me chuckle. I’ve been creating a mental list of things I do that prove that I am getting old.

Tell me you’re getting old without actually telling me you’re getting old…

  • cheaters, of course
  • afternoon cup of coffee to make it through the day
  • Sensodyne, sounds like something my grandma would need
  • gel seat cushion for long road trips
  • early to bed, early to rise (We’re talking 9:30 and 5:00)
  • 60 minutes (I actually look forward to Sunday nights)
  • neck wrinkles (I’ve told all my younger friends to start prevention early!)
  • nightly puzzle time (see previous post)

Your turn…Tell me you’re getting old without actually telling me you’re getting old!
