Default You know you're getting old when...

- you make those stage moves you made back in the '60s, and it sounds like somebody's playing claves behind you...

When you walk from one room to another and say to yourself, “what am I here after?”

Extra points if that room has a sink and toilet.

You know you’re getting old when you stoop to tie your shoelaces and wonder what else you could do while you’re down there.

You bend down to tie your shoelaces and wonder what else you get done while you're down there.

When you can't find what you're looking for and you don't know what you're looking for.

When you buy a little jug of Blue Emu - at what seems like an exorbitant price - in the hopes that it will actually do something to improve your finger style.

This confused me .... "Blue Emu?" I looked on line - not approved in UK. I'll stick with Voltarol (Ibroprufen) which my cat then licks off ......... my arthritic thumb. (i thought it best to give that last detail).

Last week I ran into a friend at the hospital, we had back to back colonoscopies scheduled with the same surgeon.

Yeah, I thought that was funny.

I think my next tour could be sponsored by Fleer.

You know you are old when you can injure yourself while sleeping.
