Growing old

You know you’re growing old when:

  • it’s Wednesday and your entire body aches from the hockey game you played on Monday
  • your step-daughter’s friend calls you “old man”
  • you start listening to CBC because you’re sick of hearing the same playlists on your usual radio stations (Q107 and CFNY)
  • you notice that more hair is growing in your ears
  • your barber offers to trim that hair
  • your wife starts buying you clothes from The Bay and you don’t really mind
  • your friend Heather, who hasn’t seen you in a year, immediately notices the gray hair taking over your head
  • newspaper stories about guys having heart attacks from playing hockey become interesting news items
  • staying up past 1 AM becomes a real challenge
  • when you start to forget how old you are (37).
