I was scrolling through Facebook tonight and it seemed everywhere I looked there was a picture, or post, that was age related, like OLD age related, and it really started to freak me out.
I've been 50 for seven months now and I kinda thought I was used to the idea. After tonight I realize I'M NOT!
One of the pictures I saw said something that related being old and having to scroll for your birth year. I freaking HATE that. I mean, why do they have to start with the 80's? It only makes 1962 that much farther away. ( I totally had to just google "further" and "farther" to see which to use in that sentence. I still don't know what the hell is the correct one!)
1962 used to be right there. I may have had to scroll a couple of times, but it was there. Now I seem to freaking scroll forever.
You know what else make me feel old? Those statistical questions that group us into age ranges. Having to skip up to the next range gives me shivers.
But what REALLY made me feel old tonight was a comment I made on a picture I posted about not remembering my twenties and I wrote the caption, "why stop in my twenties? I need the entire five decades!" Now THAT made me feel old!
That's it! Tomorrow will be making appointments for botox, hair color and micro-dermabrasion!
