    Getting old and "experienced"...

    I was listening to the radio today and, like many stations today, they are cutting-down on the chit-chat and airing more and more music, even having 1 hour reserved to "oldies" from the 80-90' disco era. I then realized, with most of these old songs, I can relate in some way to a stripper, a SP or another sexual situation.

    This got me thinking, I've spent countless hours in strip clubs and having sex. I am now getting girls to dance for me who are the age I was when I started to go to strip clubs! I could be the father of most girls in some clubs... I probably helped countless of these "I do it to finance school" girls, helped countless girls "doing it so they could retire young" or others who simply were working for their next fix. How much money? I'd rather not try to count and I don't mind I spent that money, I did it because I wanted to and enjoyed (almost) every minutes of it, with no plans to stop.

    Sooo.... This thinking process got me to the realization that, damn, I'm getting old! I'm still in my early 40s and I don't mind getting older either, nor do I consider myself an old fart either. It's only a cold fact of life: we get older!

    So, ladies and gents, what trigger for you the "I'm getting old" fiber? What makes you realize water is going under the bridge, no matter if you like it or not? Not a big "I'm depressed now" thing, just the little things of life that makes you go "Hey! Where did time go?"

    Actually having a family doctor that I know the name of, pills, torn rotator cuff, giving up playing hockey and looking in the mirror - now there's a scarey sight.

    When did I first realize that I was indeed getting older?

    When some kid tugged on my sleeve at the bus stop, "Miss, do you know what time it is?"

    MISS!!!!! This kid looked at me and called me MISS!!!! Geez that made me feel old! LOL

    Other than that I don't feel old, and sometimes I am surprised at my own age.

    However, some of the people I meet and enjoy talking to, are young enough to be my son or daughter; that always shocks me into thinking how time flies by and the years keep rolling on.

    As a matter of fact I am acting my age
    They will forget what you said,
    they will forget what you did,
    but they will never forget the way you made them feel.

    The C-Nile club!

    Well that's great! Now the whole lot of you are really depressing me. And I was doing so well with the therapy. I even went to the store today without one thought of falling and breaking a hip. I think the next time I have to visit the funeral home I'll just hang around. Not much point in going home.

    Signs that you are getting older.

    Hello Metoo4,

    The thing that gets me more and more is when sports stars retire and they are all younger than me...yikes.

    Here are signs that you too may be getting older. Some of these are good:

    « You sympathize with a hot girl's father instead of scheming how to get in her pants.

    « Your favorite sports heros are all young enough to be your son.

    « All the babes you meet are your son's girlfriends...and they call you sir.

    « Everything hurts and what doesn't hurt doesn't work.

    « The gleam in your eyes is from the sun hitting your bi-focals.

    « Your little black book contains only names that end in M.D.

    « Your children begin to look middle aged.

    « Your mind makes contracts your body can't meet.

    « You would rather have a good night sleep than an all night party.

    « You turn out the lights for economic rather than romantic reasons.

    « Your knees buckle, and your belt won't.

    « You're 17 around the neck, 42 around the waist, and 105 around the golf course.

    « You make an appointment to see the dentist.

    « You keep repeating yourself.

    « You have a dream about prunes.

    « The end of your tie doesn't come anywhere near the top of your pants.

    « You take a metal detector to the beach.

    « You wear black socks with sandals.

    « Your ears and nose are hairier than your head.

    « You got cable for the Weather Channel (sometimes referred to as "Old Folks MTV").

    « If a young girl looks at you, you check to make sure you remembered to put on your pants.

    « You keep repeating yourself.

    « You discover bifocals are stylish.

    « Most women you know under 40 put you in the "Friend of my Father" class.

    « Conversations with people your own age often turn into "dueling ailments."

    « People don't harass you any more when you take an afternoon nap.

    « In a hostage situation you are likely to be released first.

    « It's harder and harder for sexual harassment charges to stick.

    « Kidnappers are not very interested in you.

    « No one expects you to run into a burning building.

    « Restaurants stop asking to see your senior discount card.

    « People no longer view you as a hypochondriac.

    « There's nothing left to learn the hard way.

    « Things you buy now won't wear out.

    « You consider coffee one of the most important things in life.

    « You constantly talk about the price of gasoline.

    « You're actually interested in hearing about other people's operations.

    « You get into a heated argument about pension plans and social security.

    « You have a party and the neighbors don't even realize it.

    « You no longer think of speed limits as a challenge.

    « You quit trying to hold your stomach in, no matter who walks into the room.

    « You sing along with the elevator music.

    « You talk about "good grass" and you're referring to someone's lawn.

    « Your eyes won't get much worse.

    « Your investment in health insurance is finally beginning to pay off.

    « Your joints are more accurate than the National Weather Service.

    « Your secrets are safe with your friends because they can't remember them either.

    « Your supply of brain cells is finally down to a manageable size.

    « People begin sending you lists like this and you say, "Man, it is so funny," but can't remember even one line to recite.

    On a more serious note! (Yeah he's going to ramble on again)

    So, ladies and gents, what trigger for you the "I'm getting old" fiber? What makes you realize water is going under the bridge, no matter if you like it or not? Not a big "I'm depressed now" thing, just the little things of life that makes you go "Hey! Where did time go?"
    It is true that we are aging. The cells of the body will only divide a finite number of times. We take our cues from the world we live in especially those we meet every day. At least as I see it, it is a death of a thousand cuts. And to answer your question that is the trigger for me. But in the end it is how young you feel that is important and how one takes the ravages of time graciously. Looking back there are some paths, I think, I can do without traveling again. The learning curve of youth is not all its cracked up to be. As you get older and wiser, I have found that relationships are a bit easier to handle, be they with friends or those a bit more difficult to relate to.

    On the flip side though, I do recall one episode in the book by John R. Powers, “Do Black Patent Leather Shoes Really Reflect Up?” where he comments that he was driving along on the freeway one beautiful summer day in his new Mercedes luxury sedan. In the lane adjoining an old wheezing air cooled Volkswagen beetle came into view. The old relic was gasping and wheezing under its load of kids laughing and chatting away merrily, totally unconcerned about the image of relative poverty they were portraying. He said that in a heartbeat he knew that a slight push on the gas would send the big sedan with its rich all leather interior sailing past. But in that moment the only thought was that he would have traded all he had achieved to be one of them in that rusty old Volkswagen. The future is magic to the young.

    But no regrets so far, and still a fair distance to go. After all, ain't none of us gettin' out of this alive.

    Cheer Up Metoo4.

    You know you're old when you don't care about "countless hours in strip clubs and having sex" anymore.

    They say (age-wise) that the 50 is the new 30 so that means 40 is the new 20. This makes the girls at the strip clubs just the right age for you.

    Like the line goes in one of those old Monty Python movies (Holy Grail). "I'm not dead, yet!!!"

    The downside is..... it kind of rattles me to think I may not have as many summers left as I've already had!

    The upside is, albeit a tad larcenous, is that I'm able to pull out my guitar and sing any Beatles song to a nubile lass, saying" I wrote this for you my little rocky mountain canary"

    When I realised more than one thing on Merlot's list did honestly apply to me.

    Screw it. I woke up this morning, good enough.
