    Both of you guys are too old to be posting here without supervision of a 5 year old. Shall I heat up a cup of milk for you two?

    We are starting to sound like Jack Lemmon and Walter Matthau.

    I do too. But if Rob keeps talking to me that way, next time I am riding out his way, be damned if I am going to settle with him buying me one of those sucky maid's pee beer. Vodka and prune juice. Double it up.

    You know you're getting old when you and a retired friend go for a hike, and spend the whole hike discussing what ani-inflammatory and pain pills you will take when you get home.

    My boss and I were talking and stopped to laugh. We were showing our age by one upping each other with degenerative body part stories. I used to remember the "old folks" doing this when I was a kid and thinking how boring it was.

    Did you discuss if your latest bowel movement was a gruntie, normal, or kinda like shaking up a bottle of champagne and popping the cork?

    You know you're getting old when you stick a dark colored gummy bear in your ear to see the hairs when you pluck 'em.

    You know you are getting old when instead of complaining about another damn assisted living community being built nearby you instead begin wondering how much they cost and wonder what they look like on the inside.

    No my wife and I regale each other with those kinds of stories. You miss the one where it's the shape and size of a wine bottle made of concrete aggregate.

    As my old boss used to say "The taper is on the wrong end."

    When the "Oldies" station that was around when you were young, is still the oldies station but the songs they're playing are from your generations contemporary hits! (True story)
