RE: You know you're getting old when...
One day this weekend I was finishing making a pitcher of tea. Had to to to the bathroom so I stopped what I was doing. The downstairs bathroom was occupied so I went upstairs. While up there I decided to get dressed to go get groceries. In the meantime, husband had left on an errand. I get home an hour or two later only to have husband say...'Get sidetracked?, you took the tea bags out of the basket and threw then away, had the spoon sitting alongside the pitcher, but you were gone when I got back."

OY -- wouldn't be so bad if I hadn't been back in the kitchen on my way out and walked right past the tea pitcher on my way.

Facepalm

See here they are the bruises some were self-inflicted and some showed up along the way. - JF

My friends and I got together and one of the conversations we had was about benefits and pension plans at our jobs. It didn't strike me as significant at the time.

I remember you being 15, that was back when I was just 19. Shocking

Worst

You think about how to by cheap things to save up money, and to make sure no food goes to waste because that is money wasted.

We call that "Occupation syndrome", after the German occupation, when people were poor and had no food. Not sure if there is an actual syndrome for that.

My grandma will eat 5 days old bread so that it doesn't go to waste, even if it's just one slice left and there's fresh bread on the table. She always complains when I leave just one bite on my plate and I'm full and I can't finish it.
That's just unhealthy compulsive behavior. Well, the extreme version of it. But old people here are quite prone to it Tongue
