    ...not one of those cosmetic adverts.

    I used to think a definition of old was {current age + 10}. But more recently I've come to the conclusion that you're only old when you just can't resist telling people how old you are. Does anyone have a better definition?

    How about when people at a certain age behaving as they are much younger but obvious to others that they're not? (... but no-one dare tell them which spoils the amusement? ;) )

    When you are old, believe me, you will know all about it..........old age is not for the faint hearted. Pain from the bumps you had playing rugby all those years ago seem to rise to the surface all over again:confused: ...the best advice I can offer is to keep mobile and think positively ;)

    What, five-and-a-half? LittleBabyBadger tells people how old she is all the time. I don't.

    You're getting old:

    When you wake up with a stinking hangover, and say 'Never again'. And stick to it.

    When you see a policeman's photo in the local paper, and think 'Policeman look younger these days'. Then you read the text, and discover it was his retiral party...

    When you say, 'I saw Jim Shepherd playing principal cornet with Black Dyke', and half the band say 'Who's Jim Shepherd?' (And the other half say 'Who's Black Dyke?'...:wink:)

    When it takes you all night to do what you used to do all night...

    ... Or so I've been told! ;)

    Not invisible to the observer, but those people who resort to dying their hair to cover the grey (especially the guys! :tongue: ).

    What about those who dye their hair pink?:rolleyes:
    And Rapier, I'm always going to be younger than you.:tongue:
    Badgers are like elephants. We never forget. You are a marked man. Don't go into dark woods alone or the lads will be round to take you for little walk... Bejayzus will you look at the teeth on that thing.
  14. Old... When other people look at you and think you are older than you are? Opposite to my situation I might add! As someone said recently, I haven't aged very well.

    People think I'm much older than I am. 15 tomorrow but when I'd just turned 14 I got asked if I was over 18?!

    I think I'm getting old now. I'm not quite as hypo and energetic as I was in the olden days :(

    Should you have tried to order a pint in the pub at 14? :guiness

    When the wolf whistle you receive puts you on cloud nine, only to plummet when you realise it was aimed at your daughter! :eek:

    when i realised i left school longer ago than the length of time i was at secondary school!
    And when, at 23, i look at younger people and think 'kids are growing up so fast these days!'
    Think i'm a granny in a youths body! :)
