A corallary to this: You know you are old when college girl look like high school girls.

When I was single a few years back I had a friend that wanted to set me up with this girl. When I saw her I said to my friend "wow she's way to young for me, I can't date a college girl." My friend goes "She's 28."

It started this year when the Rams hired a head coach younger than me.

I've taken to going out to a bar where I rarely recognize anyone completely alone. And my phone stays at home. It's a lot more fun than being around people I've known for years and jacking around on my phone because I'm bored.

If it’s not for a sporting event you’ll be lucky to talk me into doing anything past 9pm.

And put me in the “can’t sleep past 8am club”

I have nothing relevant to add to this thread so I must still be incredibly youthful and energetic.

On the rare Sunday when I sleep until 8:30am I wake up and feel like I've wasted the whole day.
