How Do You Know You Are Middle-aged?

– household chores become enjoyable

– one of the activities you fantasize about doing in bed is sleeping

– when you see people gossiping about you, you can’t be bothered to wonder why

– when you say “no” to a request, you feel no need to offer an excuse or an explanation

– late nights have consequences

– characters in favorite movies suddenly begin to look very young

– it feels weird when strangers or young people address you by your first name

– the number of things you feel like you have to when you don’t want to do dramatically diminishes

– embarrassment becomes a long-forgotten experience

– young people start asking you for advice about their love lives

I experienced all this since last week, and I know feel thoroughly middle-aged.
