Things that make you feel old!

I think the first thing that really had this effect upon me was my little brother leaving behind the teenage years, he will within the next year be leaving behind his 20’s (sorry for announcing this to the world Mark).

One of the biggest impacts to help me feel old though was also several years ago running a youth group who were putting the latest ‘Now’ album on the CD player (somewhere around Now 35) and they asked “was there a now 1?” to which I replied “yes, it was just called ‘Now that’s what I call music’ I have it” (it’s a great album) Then came the question “what’s on it?” it was at this point that I realised most of the young people I was talking to at the time were not even born when it came out and probably would not understand the concept of Vinyl either!

The latest was this:-
Being a Dad is great and I don’t fell old because of being a Dad, but a Dad who’s son wears a school uniform, I’m not ready for that! (sorry to all those for whom this happened a long time ago and I have now made you feel even older)

    It wasn’t you Hannah I’m afraid, I’m even older than that, it was at least 3 or 4 years before we came to Sunnyside.
