This is a question Evidence that you're getting old

Youthful as I am, I realised yesterday that I no-longer know, or care, who is #1 in the charts. Furthermore, it takes all day to get rid of a hangover and I now seem to have a profound interest in gardening. Worst is that I now use words like 'furthermore'.

What makes you think that you are getting old?

But then again....

Why have I increasing amounts of hair in my nose, and on my ears & eyebrows yet I'm losing the fucking stuff from my head ??

My defence is "you know you're getting old when.." you buy an electric hair trimmer for your nose. (I HAVEN'T OK !!!) yet.....

And the band on your t-shirt released their first album in 1968.

And you really know you are getting old when people you listened to (or heard) start to die off - Robert Palmer, John Peel, Cliff Richard (waddya mean he's not dead yet ?) with apologies to those I've left out of the list, or have heart attacks/surgery Bowie, Pete Hammill.

And the final indigity - you start to wonder if one off the wrist is a good idea your age. (Not, you understand, that I have indulged in that sort of practice for oooh, ages)
