The test. Fall over in public.

If everyone laughs, you're young.

If everyone looks worried and rushes over to help you, you're old.

When I was 17 and my 11 month old son died during heart surgery. Sorry. Downer but I turned a hard 40 overnight. 1975. Still aches.

I was at the grocery store, and I Like Big Butts And Cannot Lie came over the PA. Even the prissy-looking moms didn't look up at the speakers.

Dentist yesterday. Hot In Hurr by Nelly. Nobody batted an eye.

Middle age is hearing the bar bangers of your youth in the dentist chair.

Old is when you hear the bar bangers of your kid's youth in the dentist chair.

So sorry for your loss. It's not something you ever get over.

When this was the best thing, to me, to come out of an Indiana Jones movie.

When I was a kid, the movies were fun rollicking adventures.

I immediately felt old when he said that in the movie and I went "true....true"

For me it really was when my oldest child was finally completely separated from my wife and me. Not just moved out and paying his own bills, but not attached in anyway. His own auto insurance policy. Too old to be on our health insurance (which is a better deal and more comprehensive than the one his employer offers), not on our phone plan, not sharing a Netflix account or Amazon Prime, etc.

Thank you. Redirected my life totally. Never had another child but became dedicated 'auntie' for dozens of children sice, many who still stay in touch and visit and now offer help to me as an adult. I actually spent 25 years on the local elementary school 'pick up' office list for a dozen or so kids that I babysat and was often '3rd' duty parent for across those years. Helps immensely and one of the things I'm proudest of. Appreciate your compassion. Sounds like you might speak from experience yourself. Compassion back to you!
