You know you're getting old when...

Recommended Posts

....You remember when the Mini was actually a small car.

....You remember fiddling with a choke on a car on cold mornings.

....You remember buying a porno mag in the shops.

....You wanted Jimmy "to fix it for you". 

.....You expected jetliners to crash as soon as the clock hit midnight on NYE 1999

.... You remember when you thought Tony Blair was ok.

 

Anymore?

... the 'best way to cook roast potatoes' conversation becomes rivetting.

 

... you assume your host will be itching to hear which roads you travelled on to get to them.

 

... you find yourself saying "Oooof" for no good reason when you get out of a chair.
