Thirteen Things That Mark Me as an Old Man
It’s started. All the little things that mark an old man.
- hair is growing out the top of my nose – no, not nostrils, on the end. I’ve been trimming ear and nose hair for a long time. Sometimes I pluck, sometimes I use an electric trimmer. I would never let anyone pluck my nose hair.
- my right hand is shaky. When I pick up a forkful of Apple Pie my hand visibly shakes. I haven’t missed my mouth yet, but it’s coming. Healthy young people’s hands don’t shake.
- I just noticed today that I have that almost imperceptible and uncontrollable head shake that old people have.

UPDATE: You’re old when the first birthday card you get is from your hearing aid company.
It sucks getting older. Though I have been trying to stop the process. I took the ladies favorite way of stopping aging. They quit counting at thirtynine, I decided why wait that long, I quit counting at 29 abd holding! 😉
Maybe your just excited about the apple pie? 🙂 … Good luck with that nose hair!
@theScoundrel: ya see? here’s the deal – you can stop counting, or even think you are younger, but your body betrays you. How can a shakey fart with hair on his nose still think he is 30?
@Kimberly: well good luck with that bikini wax there kiddo.
The minute I had to get bifocals I knew I was in trouble with the 29 deal. But I am still in good enough condition not many can call me on the age thing. Though the last couple of years things have been going down hill more quickly. I know spend more time on the Internet than I do chasing women. That is the killer sign of aging. 😉
I’m a trifocal man myself. I’m soooooooo married, if I run across a naked woman in my RSS feed, I feel guilty.
What a disgusting sick thing to do, to post that picture of some poor soul who was freaking BEHEADED. you are demented.
And it’s people like you who keep me doing what I do.
they should beheading your daughter, mother and your total family, dirty fag!!!!
I read this.
Did anyone ask if you read this? Go fuck yourself scum.
I don’t get it, why the head?
My head shakes. Eventually it may fall off.
