I am 53 years old. Not too long ago I said something about being middle aged. One of my sons said, “Mom how many people do you know who are over 100!” Point taken. I was pondering today and some of the more humorous parts of being on my side of middle age came to mind.
1.You might be over the hill if you have more prescriptions than you have teeth.
2.If all your cosmetics have either wintergreen oil or eucalyptus in them.
3.If you are starting to read those catalogs, you know the ones with the support hose and comfortable shoes.
4.You might be over the hill if you think often of what to do when you can no longer clip your own toenails.
5.You might be over the hill if you wash your hair with a bathcloth.
6.If you could floss with a rope.
7.If you know more about hi fi than wi fi.
8.You might be over the hill if you ever wore and liked Hai Karate or loved someone who did!
9.You might be over the hill if you ever actually did the Loco-motion.
10.If you wore platform shoes and peasant blouses the first time around.
11.If you can’t put on your makeup or shave without your glasses.
12.You might be over the hill if you still miss Mutual of Omaha’s Wild Kingdom.
13.You might be over the hill if you remember cars without power steering.
14.If you remember “Gee Your Hair Smells Terrific” and “Lemon Up”
15.You might be over the hill if you owned a bike with a banana seat.
16.If you remember when pop cans had to be opened with an opener and when lift tabs were new, they came completely off the can and you made chains out of them!
17.If wax lips and candy cigarettes were a big part of your childhood.
18.If you know what incredible edibles and gobbledygook are.
19.You might be over the hill if you remember when Klackers were still on strings and likely to shatter and cause injury.
20.You couldn’t wait for the hit parade and the new 45s to come out every week at the record store.
I am there. I am old. I am actually a young person trapped in an old person’s body! I hope you can enjoy a stroll down your own memory lane,
