Thursday Thirteen #13: You Know You're No Longer Young When...

  1. The server calls you ma'am.
  2. The band is way too loud at a wedding.
  3. Two glasses of wine make you tipsy.
  4. You're only up at midnight to pee.
  5. You go to Wal-Mart or Target often. And for fun.
  6. You haven't watched SNL in real time since the '90s.
  7. Hot wings give you heartburn.
  8. You realize mac 'n cheese and Ramen noodles aren't on the food pyramid.
  9. You know all the words to the theme songs of Backyardigans and Little Einsteins.
  10. Yoga pants aren't just for yoga.
  11. Radio Disney is one of your saved stations on Sirius.
  12. The last concert you tried to get tickets to was Miley Cyrus/Hannah Montana.
  13. You drive an SUV or *gasp* a minivan. By choice.

Go here for more Thursday Thirteens.

MamaGeek said...

Heh heh. These were fantastic and could all be me - sans the Hannah Montannah thing - that just confuses the hell out of me. Then again, I'm easily confused. :)

Target rocks! Was just there today myself. And I still think that there is a special place in the world for Mac and Cheese, although I admit to eating organic mac now.

Natalie said...

Have you been spying on me??? Are you saying I'm not young??? Dang it!

I'm glad to say none of those apply to me... yet!

Angie said...

LOL -- I can say yes to a lot of those. Man...I guess this means I am officially getting old! LOL

Oh geez... I'm number 13.. I drive the mini van by choice (and love love love the dang thing) and salivate over large SUV's...

Just don't tell my husband, he'd trade me in for a younger model ;)

Um..Target is my second home...

You forgot one: when they no longer card you for buying alcohol. I cried the first time that happened.

Now this makes me feel very old - especially the 'concerts' one. I can remember seeing The Beatles live :-)

Thirteen Places I'd Like To Be

Kristi said...

I love these...Target is a regular hang out after the kids go to bed...just for wander time. Go Fish has a new CD with a song called "Mom" and my favorite line is "If you know who Elmo's fish is, you're a mom" That's what I thought of when you said about all the words to Backyardigans.

Mandy said...

Wow you really got me down to a T there. And I am 27 years old!

The Hannah Montana one...so funny. The last movie I saw was the Hannah Montana Best of Both Worlds with my girls. And I had to pre-buy the tickets! LOL

Great blog!
