    Doing old man stuff...

    I find myself doing old man stuff:

    1. Cupping my hand to my ear and asking people to repeat what they say.
    2. Squinting to read (I'm getting glasses next week)
    3. Wearing the same casual "outfit" and not being interested in upgrading my "look"
    4. People in their 20's look like children to me.

    Share your old man/old lady woes...

    Don't really have any "old people" tendencies yet being 29 yrs old, but I have noticed several things within the past 2-3 years.

    1. Time goes by REALLY fast, weeks seems like days as if my life is on fast forward.
    2. Anyone under the age of 20 looks like little kids to me. I often mistaken highschool kids for being middleschool aged, and college aged kids for highschool kids.
    3. I care less and less about how I look.
    4. Girls in their early 20's are no longer checking me out, now it's a lot of cougars.
    5. When doing anything dangerous I think a lot more about the consequences so my balls have definitely shrunk.

    Wondering about what veggies/plants to put in the gardens.
    Enjoying the feeling that a nice afternoon nap brings.
    Scouring over the flyers to see what's on sale this week.
    The desire to get up early in the morning.

    However, I have to admit the opposite to Will Goes Boing's #4. Being in my mid-30s I've found the 20-something ladies seem to be paying more attention to me now than they did when I was in my 20s.

    1. Cupping my hand to my ear etc. Happens to me too. I have found out though, that cotton swabs soaked in pure alcohol help a lot. Learning the local language helps even more (I am an immigrant).
    2. Got the glasses already, the main problem is not to confuse between reading and driving glasses.
    3. Wearing the same casual "outfit"...........I have always had this "take me for what I am" look.
    4. People in their 30's look like children to me.
    5. My nickname at my current and previous work and at home was until recently Richard Gere. Couple of weeks ago my wife demoted me to Harrisson Ford............

    They were just waiting for you to grow up.

    Old man stuff...um...taking over my dad's finances, reading glasses in every room, trips to the cath lab to have stents put in.

    about, and yes it still works great, get your

    Time, just time. Kids aren't kids anymore.
    And life is now way too fast. At my age starting to think about
    when the affliction is gonna catch up with me.
    But when I am on the bike, none of it matters, and I feel young again.
    for the moment.

    Squinting- my eyes were so very keen in the not so distant past.

    Synical- I was a real listener and idealist, was being the key word; but oh how I wish I knew then what I know now and I suspect everyone of you can relate to this.

    Hyper aware of my mortality- gone are the days of landing hard, doing a couple push ups, and springing back to my feet acting like I meant to fall. Now I just lay there a while and wonder how I'm gonna get through work with my new limp.

    I am the sexiest man alive- girls grin and blush when I enguage them, where on earth were these chicks when I was single

    LV, totally spot on!

    when I'm out on the trails, I watch these "kids" just blast on by. but I'm still out there, turning up dirt.

    I used to like loud bass in car stereos. Now I find myself muttering profanities under my breath about the g-dam kids driving through our neighborhood with their bass too loud. I am slowly turning into my grumpy father 1 day at a time.

    I'm just shy of 40 and wish I would get carded. You lucky sod. Luckily other than enjoying my hour after the kids are in bed, having blown knees and getting tired before finishing a beer on many days, I don't have too many OM tendancies yet... I do 'walk the property' for some unknown reason however so perhaps this is a contending tendency...

    at fifty...

    'm twice as mean as i was when i was 25...

    i'm twice as patient as i was when i was 25...

    i'm a lot better at seeing through the BS than i used to be...

    i can ride twice as far without stopping than i could when i was 35...

    i'm perfectly happy to spend most evenings reading or boob tubing rather than partying and such...

    and i have to either peer over or take off my glasses to read smaller print...

    Good timing on this one, as I'm turning 37 this week. "I'm older than I once was, younger than I'll be, that's not unusual..."

    1) I hate, and I mean absolutely detest, crowded places now. Crowded malls, movie theaters, restaurants, etc. drive me crazy. Rather just stay home!
    2) More talk radio than music comes out of the speakers in my truck; I have no idea what size the speakers are nor have I even thought about upgrading them.
    3) When I see kids skateboarding in the road, I want to run them over with said truck.
    4) I drive a few blocks out of my way to not have to drive past the high school.
    5) I think running shoes are fine w/ jeans, shorts, sweats ...

    In short, I'm right on pace to be my dad!

    And about the young girls "checking" you other old guys out ... it is just a well known symptom of OMD (old man's disease), the "I coulda got that if I were x years younger." Don't let it go to your head!

    -I curse at the "kids" speeding by my house
    -I enjoy watching the news, history channel, national geographic, etc... (and I can't stand the other "garbage" on tv, reality shows, American Idol, etc...)
    -I can fall asleep anywhere at any time, especially at family functions (has a little to do with age and a little to do with working midnights)
    -as others have said, my personal appearance is pretty far down the list of my daily concerns
    -I spent more on my new tractor than on my last 2 cars and I'm proud of it.

    At 31-

    I can't read at all with my glasses...I can't focus close enough. I have to wear contacts (if I need to look up a lot) or just take the glasses off.

    chicks never just checked me out. I can count on one hand how many times that's happened over the years.

    had cancer already. got to hang out with a lot of old people getting chemo

    gray hairs - on my head, in my beard, elsewhere (not counting the pure white ones that have been growing out of the scars on my knees since I was in middle school)

    ear hair, nose hair, back and shoulder hair

    my memory fails me often

    I remember (and know how to use) things that today's college kids have never seen or heard of (like film projectors, especially the ones without the included audio track that needed to be played on a separate record or cassette tape and synchronized with the film).

    I still get carded...but that's a local law thing. city requires you to be a "member" of each establishment that sells alcohol. they have to scan your driver's license and you have to sign a piece of paper. you have to do this each time annually, and they ask for the card at somewhat random intervals throughout the year. except some establishments don't do it, which doesn't make sense to me.

    My first time around mountain biking, 30 year old, I thought helmets were dorky. Coming back to biking at 46, I feel very vulnerable riding the same routes as before. I am in the market for a helmet now.

    does this count? I find myself instantly wanting to nap like a baby while in the car.

    1. A worn out pair of slippers that needs replacing;
    2. As stated prior, the need for numerous pairs of reading glasses strewn about home and office;
    3. A greater fear of injury at the xc races;
    4. Having to pee at night, every night;
    5. Everyone under 30 looks the same to me now;


    HOWEVER, as a man in middle age, I am proud to say that I do not require boner medicine.

    I am 40, and just bought myself a longboard. Lots of fun. Do not try to run me over, please. Thank you.

    Time definitely flies by.

    Perhaps, but old men can afford all the things that only young men can truly enjoy. I note this every time I see some old guy driving some sports car slow down a winding road ... and I assume it has an automatic too.

    I actually like getting old. Or is that sanity preservation with a splash of denial? Check out your high school reunion for a good reality check. I'll bet everyone posting in this thread looks way above average. At my 20-year the guys were already looking ghastly. I couldn't bear the horror of the 30 yr...

    Jayzus eff, Fred Beckey just called to go Sierra climbing. He's 89 and still flirts with every lady on the trail.

    Get some good street on that stick, Axe...no Mister Wilsons, eh?

    Okay, I gotta change my diaper now...

    1, 3, and 4 apply for me too!

    And maybe #2 too, because I accidentally put a 2 up there instead of the 3 yesterday—I guess they all apply!

    LOL! That is totally me now.

    Thinking BEFORE doing

    ...and then not doing usually, but going away with tail between legs.

    you mean you can actually get injured?
    you mean you might me out of work?
    you mean you might be bed ridden?
    you mean people might be depending on you to avoid getting hurt?
    You mean now that I'm old that might not heal properly ...EVER!?

    I find myself 'grunting' when do something like bend over to tie my shoe, get up from sitting on the ground, etc. Yet, I don't feel like I'm straining or hurt anywhere.

    My muscles stiff up (not that one) more easily when sitting after a ride, etc.

    I might be young, but I feel old. Lots of long work weeks, being a dad and the level of personal responsibility that goes with that and waking up before sunrise everyday. But bikes make it all better.

    Also, HAHA you all are old.

    I had the week off from work and I didn't really want to do anything. I did a few odds 'n ends and took a couple of rides. The old man bomb dropped yesterday after mowing the lawn. I walked around thinking how nice it looked and then out of nowhere a voice said it's time for a little nap. I grabbed my ipod and headed out back, plopped down on the hammock kicked on the tunes and it was lights out in about 10 minutes.
