When did I become old and boring?

  • I can’t even remember the last time I saw the outside of a night club (are they still called that?) let alone the inside of one.
  • I don’t understand most of what passes as popular culture these days.
  • A big night out usually involves dinner at 7pm, check by 9pm, and bed by 11pm.
  • Recently I turned up at my “regular” drinking hole only to discover that it closed a year ago.
  • I used to wear nothing lower than 4½” heels. All day. Every day. Every where. Now pains my knees and back force me to wear “sensible” footwear (but I haven’t gone as far as orthopedic footwear) (yet).
  • I bring a jacket and an umbrella whenever I leave home.
  • I yell at my neighbours if they make any noise after 10pm.
  • My favourite tv channels are the History and National Geographic channels.
  • I used to enjoy marathon shopping outings of 6 hours or more (in 4½” heels). Now I only have the energy to go to the supermarket (in sneakers) (while carrying a jacket and an umbrella).
  • The last few all-nighters were due to insomnia, not partying.
  • On New Year’s Eve, I set my alarm for 11:55pm. At midnight I said “Yes! Made it to midnight!”. Fifteen minutes later, I was asleep again. I didn’t even bother to get out of bed.
