    When you realized you were "old"

    OLD is the relative term here.

    For example I realized today when I was at my friend's memorial service and most of my friends I haven't seen in years were saying, "when you get to be our age..." and their 2 kids are running around at 4 and 5....

    As well I can remember when I turned 13 and said, "I am older now and need to start a riding 10 speeds."

    Something in your memory?

    I'm not 'old' by any means, but definitely have those 'moments' now and again when I feel like it!

    - When the kids I taught to skate in preschool are now seniors...

    I'm 24, but alot of the kids in children's church are 18, now, and I was 15 when I was a helper! It weirds me out, sometimes.

    That is so true. I hear music my parents would complain about on the station they listen to now. Of all things the radio satiation is called KOSI (cosy).

    when I realized that all of the Miss Usa contestants were younger than me....

    When my youngest cousin started college. She is 12 1/2 years younger than me and she turned 5 the year I started college. It helped when we all remembered that she skipped a year in school. LOL! She's now been married for 6 years and had their 1st child last December.

    At age 26 I began to fear turning 30 because I'd always tho't that anyone 30 or beyond was OLD!

    When cashiers start asking if you have your Golden Age discount card with you, LOL.

    I'm not quite old enough to qualify for one, but due to the amount of gray in my hair they invariably ask for it.

    I'm not even close to old yet(I'm gonna turn 16 in 2 weeks), but during the free time in Learn to Skate, they play these 90's stations. I was telling one of my student that I remembered when this song came out, "All Star," Smash Mouth, and it occured to me that this girl wasn't even alive when the song was released! AAAAAHHH!!!

    I could go on and on....

    When I get to teach children of students I had taught in elementary school. Over all, though, working with elementary kids helps me stay younger in my outlook on things.

    You know you are old because....

    The baby sister you once carried in your arms to the sitter is now twenty something with a "you're old so you don't know anything" attitude.

    ... you can remember a time when Micheal Jackson was still black. ( I was a HUUUGE fan during high school!)

    You can still remember the bright red uniforms the USSR always showed up in during the summer games.

    I can vaguely remember the speech Dr. Eric Willaims (father of Trinidad's independance) gave when we (T&T) became a republic in 1976.

    I remember when my mom had four kids not five. (the last one is mentioned above as being in her early 20s)
