What you talk about

You tell kids how easy they have it compared with the way things were when you were young.

You keep telling the same stories you've told many times before.

You discuss your ailments with anyone who will listen.

Doing things

You don't read any new books or go to the movies.

You haven't learned a any new activity or taking up any new interest in several years.

You can't decide where to spend your vacation because you just as soon stay home.

You'd never attend a party if you are going to be the only person there over 30.


A sign of getting older is that your attitudes about things seem to change. These attitudes concern new and old things, what you like to talk about, and what you like to do.
