Symptoms of being over 30

A friend sent me this via email. It's scary how most if not all actually apply to me now I'm over 30, although I am still proud of the fact I was a hard-core clubber until my late 20's. I stopped then, because after a certain age (27), it dosn't look cool anymore so much as pathetic (mutton dressed as lamb anyone?) I know you are all nodding and smiling as you read these too, so don't deny it!

1. You leave clubs before the end to "beat the rush".

2. You get more excited about having a roast on a Sunday than going clubbing the night before.

3. You stop dreaming of becoming a professional athlete and start dreaming of having a son who might instead.

4. Before throwing the local paper away, you look through the property section.

5. All of a sudden, middle aged people are not 46, they are only 46.

6. Before going out anywhere, you ask whether there is anywhere to park.

7. Rather than throw a knackered pair of trainers out, you keep them because they'll be alright for the DIY or in the garden.

8. You buy T-shirts without anything written on them.

9. Instead of laughing at the innovations catalogue that falls out of the newspaper, you suddenly see both the benefit and money saving properties of most of the things that are in it.

10. You start to worry about your parents' health.

11. You have more disposable income, but everything you want or need to buy costs between $200 and $500.

12. You don't get funny looks when you buy a Disney video or a Wallace And Gromit bubble bath, as the sales assistant assumes they are for your children.

13. Pop music all starts to sound the same.

14. You opt for gourmet pizza over Pizza Hut because they do a really nice half-bottle of house red.

15. You always have enough milk in.

16. To compensate for the fact that you have little desire to go clubbing, you instead frequent trendy bars and restaurants in the mistaken belief that you have not turned into your parents.

17. While flicking through the TV channels, you happen upon Grumpy Old Women on the ABC. You get drawn in.

18. The benefits of superannuation become clear.

19. You go out of your way to pick up a colour chart from Bunnings

20. You wish you had a shed.

21. You have a shed.

22. You actually find yourself saying "They don't make 'em like that anymore" and "I remember when there were only 2 TV channels" and "Not in my day...."

23. Triple M play more songs you know than Triple J - and Oprah has some really interesting guests on.

24. Instead of tutting at old people who take ages to get off the bus, you tut at rowdy school children.

25. When sitting outside a pub you admire their hanging baskets.

26.You find yourself saying "is it cold in here or is it just me.

That's true!!! I'm 34 ans all you have written it's sadely true!
I'm from Belgium. If you want to see a little bit of Tuscany (I have a house there), type on google, Oliviers de Florence. Enjoy!

Diva said...

Very funny. Now what happens at 40?

Kitty said...

I thought life was supposed to begin at 40!

lisa g. said...

this is a very true message...and wait until you are in your 40's, you basically become a 'bottom line' kinda patience for anyone who doddles...

Kitty said...

I already have no patience for people who doddle - hence why I don't take public transport. I'm gonna be the grumpy old woman from hell when I grow up :D

Sailor Girl said...

Well... I'll be 37 in April and I have all these symptoms... I just loved to go to discothèques and dance until sunrise!!!
I also used to climb up masts very easily and now... two yaers ago, when I was halfway to the top of one mast, I nearly fainted...

Good grief...

Sailor Girl said...

(was does «doddle» mean?)

Kitty said...

Sailor Girl, I was exactly the same! I remember going home from clubs at 8.00am when everyone else was going to work! Now a big night out is dinner and a movie and bed by 11.30pm!

"Doddle" is what old people do, they walk slow and take forever to do something. At least I think that is what it means.

Laurie said...

Just wait until you're over 40. :)

Kitty said...

Hi Laurie, unfortunately, I don't have very much longer to wait :(

Milly Moo said...

Oh dear, they are all too true, and I can add a few more, too (at the ripe old age of 38) -
Leaving your fun knickers in the drawer and always selecting the comfy, tummy flattening ones;
Not shaving your legs even on your weekly 'date night' with hubby;
Being grateful that you have clean clothes for work and NOT if they're fashionable; and
Choosing a hairstyle that can be worn wet and combed - that's it...

Regards, MillyMoo

Hello. My wife and I bought our house about 6 months ago. It was a foreclosure and we were able to get a great deal on it. We also took advantage of the 8K tax credit so that definitely helped. We did an extensive remodeling job and now I want to refinance to cut the term to a 20 or 15 year loan. Does anyone know any good sites for mortgage information? Thanks!
