Holy Crap, I'm Getting Old...

...and this is how I know it.

When coughing becomes synonymous with changing your undies and showering mid day.

When you jokingly say to the girl you are sure is 25, "What. You're like 21, right? Ha ha."

And she replies, "Almost!"

Uh. Whoops.

You are outside and begin to have a conversation with a bird...it warbles, you whistle. It warbles...again you whistle. Silence. You whistle again...it warbles! Do this for at least 5 minutes.

Call your family outside to hear this amazing conversation. It stops.

Go back inside and watch as your youngest son sits and begins pushing buttons on his new Trouble game. It warbles.

**forehead slap.**

Been there done that...except it wasn't a bird, it was a cow. I wasn't alone. Rich was with me. I mooed at it. ANd this cow went bonkers. It mooed and mooed and mooed. I am not sure if it was happy or pissed. hahahaha.

Hey girl you can't be getting old because as you informed me we were born the same year, so that would mean I am getting old, and I don't like that. LOL
Yesterday I was watching football with my hubby and I told him this one pro player looked like a baby. My husband reminded me that the players are not getting any younger, but we are getting older.

Thanks for voting today. I want me to win that iPad2 too!

HAHAHA! Love the bird comment- mostly because I saw a play this weekend where the girl spent half of the play talking to a bird and I thought she was surely going insane!

Thanks for the comment and popping in on my blog. Love all the book geared posts that you have!

That's me plugging my ears and refusing to listen to you. I'm never getting old. Never ever ever ever...times infinity.

But I have had to change my panties before due to an unexpected release of pee.

You throw your back out getting out of bed in the morning.

The coughing is the worst! I will have to start wearing Depends soon.
