I'm Getting Old

What makes me say that? Is it the few grey hairs starting to show up in my beard? Is it the number on me ol' odometer? Is it that 20 year old girls now look like they're in 6th grade and when I look at them as being hot I feel like a dirty old man? Is it that I haven't been carded in well over 10 years?

Nope... none of the above.

It's the fact that I'm starting to wake up at 6:15 a.m. consistently every morning. 6:15!!! Without an alarm! Crap. Next thing you know I'll be biking to work...

*sigh*

At least you don't need bifocals.

That's pretty sad. My mom & grandpa do that too. Looks like a walker may be in your near future.

I used to scoff at those people who said they woke up at 6 and couldn't get back to sleep. Pride cometh before the awakening I suppose...

regularity can be a good thing, methinks.

All depends on the time of day, and the number of prunes eaten I suppose frank.

Welcome to the End of the World. I hit your blog and all I can say is... after seeing yours, I hope you're not too disappointed here, but hey... you get what you pay for.

Besides, everyone needs to do a little slumming every now and again.

Oh my gosh, the other day I saw this gorgeous young guy in the parking lot and said to my daughter, "Wow, he is hot," and she said, "Mom, he's a 9th grader, he's 15."

I swear to God, I felt like a pervert. I thought he was a guy, not a boy. I still feel sick when I think about it, which is why I shouldn't have brought it up.

This post made me laugh out loud. I so get the early morning wide awake thing. How about the middle of the night urination deal? Huh? Huh? =)

No Beth... I can go all night between such events.

If you're having trouble with that, and being an insomniac I can't see how you could, take 2 teaspoons of honey before bed. I'm told honey absorbs and holds onto excess moisture in your system and it'll delay such events for quite some time. I read it as a suggestion for helping stop bedwetting in children.

I know I'm old, but it has nothing to do with waking up w/o need of the alarm clock. It's the knees creaking and aching as I go up steps. It's my feet hurting when I wear any cute shoes at all. It's the grey hair lightening up my hair so people keep calling me a blonde instead of a redhead. Shall I go on?

Oh yeah, it's thinking that anybody under the age of 26 looks to be 12 years old.

Insomniacs have urination problems too. It doesn't wake me as I'm usually awake, but being a legitimate scaredy-cat, I don't like getting up out of bed in the dark of the night.

I'm going to try your honey trick. I drink tons of water all day long so pay for it in the nighttime hours, I think.

"Oh yeah, it's thinking that anybody under the age of 26 looks to be 12 years old."

Oh!... then I would be erm... 14 or so. :ewink:

Try it Beth, I'd be interested to see if it works. It's also supposed to aid in sleeping too...

I hate the auto wakeup. My college self was conditioned to sleep until I was good and ready to wake up. Now, my eyes snap open at the most ungodly hours.
Darn kids, I blame them.

6:15!? In the A.M.?! That's... horrifying. I get up at 8:00. Most of the time.

Ok. Some of the time.

Tell me about it P. And you get up at 8? Hmmmm... that would be 6 my time so perhaps you are the one to blame. What type of sick voodoo ritual are you performing against me? ;)

Those 20 year olds probably ARE 6th graders. Have you seen how kids are dressing these days? Our neighbor girl is 12 and has better club clothes than I do!

Hey! Look everyone! It's Tink! How disappointed you must be after reading my posts.

But look on the bright side, I haven't posted lately so you've been partially spared. :P

You bike to work Mr. S? Well I'll be... *whistles innocently*

Well... that and Kathleen stole my title.
