    You know you're getting older when.......

    When you hear things that last happened 30+ years ago (st mirren winning against Celtic) and instinctively think that’s the 70s or early 80s, then someone says naw, that was in the 90s

    You have very little joy trying to explain black and white tv existed to a teenager.

    When you’re telling your 8 year old, Aberdeen supporting step son that they once beat Real Madrid to win a European trophy and he just laughs at you as he’s never heard anything so ridiculous in his short life.

    You stop counting grey hairs and just accept they are there and they aren't going away.

    My daughter asked me the other day WHY I had grey hair. I don't think she believed me when I answered 'because of you'.

    I tried explaining the speaking clock to my teenager a few months ago, he couldn't get his head around it at all

    When you realise that you were born during an event they now teach in history classes. (Cuban missile crisis if you must know)

    When you describe someone on a TV show as “the old looking one” then look them up and realise they are younger than you.

    When the local charity shop is basically your record collection recreated (although some tosser has added Robbie Williams to it)

    You talk to your son about a football game you were at and he tells you that was forty years ago.

    As I drove my 16 year old daughter to school this morning, "Don't Stop me Now" by Queen came on the radio and she happily sang along (me too TBH!).

    I remember it's release in 1979 - 42 years ago!

    The equivalent for when I was 16 would have been to sing along with a song that came out in 1942 (eg. Vera Lynn - the White Cliffs of Dover).

    F*** me!

    Or when you fancy somebody on a TV show and realise that the person playing her Mum is the same age as you.



    Oh well, I suppose her Mum is quite attractive as well...

    When you read through this thread and recognise most of the posts as being actual issues rather than something your Dad jokes about.

    I was speaking to someone who used to play rugby for Scotland on Saturday.

    He played in the same team as Bryan Redpath, and having one of his team-mates sons playing for the team on Saturday afternoon made him suddenly feel a generation older. It was quite funny, he was obviously affected by it.


    I'm pretty sure the last player to play for Hibs who was older than me was Shefki Kuqi. It's a bit depressing to know that nobody older than me will ever play for Hibs again.

    When many of the futuristic Sci-Fi movies from your younger days are set in what is now the past.
    Blade Runner was set in 2019 and Back to the Future part 2 was 2015. 2001 also being an obvious one.

    When you realise it was 14 years this year since we won the league cup, and fourteen years before that would have been 1993. And you can remember 1993.

    When sleeping through the night is a huge achievement that you honestly can't quite believe. Well it happened once last year, not all that hopeful of another one though!
