You know you are old when ...
What made you realize you were actually aging with everyone else?

Pat said
...............I'll be 60 next month and have already lived longer than my mother and (older) sister did. While my recovery time from strenuous physical activity is longer than it used to be and my knees talk to me more that I'd like, I don't feel particularly 'old'. A healthy diet and regular at the gym probably helps. I'm with you on that, Pierre!............

Honestly, you don't look that old Pat. You are doing great.

@pat I'm with you, I think we are as old as we let ourselves be. The alternative is bad, so I like to jump in and continue to learn new things, stay active, and keep moving. I too am going to live forever!

That's the spirit. ๐Ÿ™‚
I think I know I'm old because I'm actually interested in staying healthy. ๐Ÿ™‚ So yes, the alternative is bad.

I know I'm getting old when ....

I take that first drink from the cup-of-tea I just made, and suddenly realize it's coffee....

I finally did it - I ordered a coffee and they asked me what kind and I said "I don't know, just give me a double espresso with some milk in it. I really don't know the names of any of them any more."

That's a bit of a lie. I used to order cappuccinos, but decided the froth just kept it too hot too long. So then I started ordering flat whites because they were described as like a cappuccino but with less milk and no froth. But then one place serves it a decent strength and the next just serves what looks like off-white milk.

The "double espresso with milk" I ordered tasted like it had come out of a Cona filter jug that had been standing on the hot-plate too long. I guess I've got to watch the guy operate the machine in future.

I give up.

So many people in the business don't know how to make coffee. I'm a bit of an amateur barista and can get irritated when they do stuff like that. Very few baristas know how to foam the milk right. When it's done right it should look like velvet and not be too thick and light.
