Hints if You're Not Sure You're OLD

Hint #209
You can barely make it through a meal without blowing your nose. Regardless of what you eat.

Hint #209a
You have kleenex in virtually every room and ALL the vehicles.
209.. why does that happen? I've noticed over the last year or so that it almost always happens now. Regardless if it's something spicy or hot.

Yeah, it really doesn't matter what it is. There's some theories behind it. One is food allergies, but I'm pretty dubious that there is an onset of food allergies later in life. Another is that it is a sign of dementia/Alzheimer's, but that seems equally unlikely to me. If I had to take a guess, it is probably less tolerance to ANY spices...especially pepper that is common on every table. There may also be some lessening of the body's ability to regulate body temperature between the roof of the mouth and nasal passage. So the "extreme" temperature fluctuation causes the sinuses to go active.

I for one gave up spicy stuff as can't really tolerate it anymore as get nasty heartburn after eating something real spicy.
 
Acid reflux..I used to be able to eat anything..Not anymore..
And, don't think Acid reflux can't harm you..mine will get so bad, I bleed from it..

I'm equally concerned about the aftermath when the term "shit fire" becomes a reality. I can deal with a little bit of black pepper here and there but even too much of that and I'm in trouble. And unfortunately fissures exacerbate it exponentially.

I don't bleed from it. Geez Louise. Sorry that happens to you. It will however wake me up and make me sit straight up suddenly because I feel like I'm gonna puke. For me, anything with tomatoes just tears me up.
 
My life with a damn astigmatism 😂😂😂

Is that just from a distance? Or the same up close? Sucks either way. Damn sure sucks if it's both. 😟

No astigmatism but I am farsighted. If it's up close I gotta have readers or it's too blurry. All those years looking as far down the road as I could OTR is guess. One upside. Makes at least one thing look bigger than it is. 🤣
 
No.1
A super hot chick calls you SIR...

No.2
If your log is moved to the Vet section...(Mont)

No.3
If you have to lie about why you're buying something.. I'm helping my father and that's why I'm getting baby wipes..

Feel free to add to this extensive list..

At least you have sense. I ran out of that decades ago. 🤣

Distance doesn't matter. Everything is always out of focus with an astigmatism. Its always just a blur without the glasses.
 
#3 Wipes...I don't care what anyone thinks about my butt hygiene. I'm gonna use them.

To add to your list:

1) AARP sends you mail daily

2) The waitress tries to give you the senior discount (and you take it because you enjoy saving money)

3) You no longer find yourself flirting with girls in bars, etc. Instead you're flirting with all the nurses you now see. And you suddenly realize you have a fetish for scrubs and panty lines.

Nurse: "You have such nice veins!"
Me: "That's nothing. I got this one you should see."
👍🏻 Love it...also the young bucks at work (who usually weigh no more than 160) try to help you lift something that's no heavier than 100lbs! 🫣
 
This oughtta get a chuckle. You've all probably heard of, or had it happen to you, pulling a muscle in your sleep. Been there done that. Sucks. Well, it's embarrassing as hell but I'll be honest. I threw out my lower back and stayed in the bed for 5 days from wiping my ass. Took my legs out from under me. Laying on the $#@!%$& bathroom floor and couldn't get up. No, I didn't have to call anyone. But it took a while to make it to the bed. If that ain't gettin' "older" I don't know what is.

Kinda feels that way at times. 🤣 Like one of those goats that freezes up when you yell at it.

Is this where I apply for Social Security?
 
Yeah, or drag racing in this case but my parachute didn't open. 🐒 💨

I've had several friends with many horror stories about parachuting..
Cigarette Roll...Hung Jumper..
Most all have pins in their legs..

Stuff that's NOT in the Airborne pamphlet..LOL

Too many pamphlets. So little information. I think most of us graduated from the Slippery Rock Institute of Technology. Had to bust our asses a few times to learn.
 
When you enjoy Food Porn..
