You know you're getting old when...

*You listen to NPR on the way to and from work each day. "Oooh, reading disabilities, foreign elections, and Haitian folk music...how interesting!"

*You quote lines from movies, and your teenage students just look at you like you're insane. Umm....they've never seen Tommy Boy...they've never seen The Princess Bride...THEY'VE NEVER SEEN BEAUTY AND THE BEAST. ??????!!!!!!!???????

*You are ecstatic when you get to go to bed at 10:00 p.m. on a Saturday night.

What else can be added to this list?


  1. Um, Beauty and the Beast?!? Are you serious? Not normal. And the others are classics. Now Karate Kid I would understand . . . (don't tell Sam).

  2. When you start caring how much fiber you eat...

  3. When you look at your closet full of cute clothes and sassy heels and choose a tshirt and sneakers for the fifteenth day in the row because they're so comfy, and what's the point of dressing up, anyway?

  4. When your students also haven't heard of David Bowie.

  5. NPR... wow, I"m glad to hear that I'm not the only one "getting old".

    Did you get my money for the calendar?


I love hearing from you!! Thanks for the comment!
