You know you're middle aged when

You know you’re middle aged when…..
Your houseplants stay alive - and you can’t smoke any of them
You keep more food than beer in the fridge
Six in the morning is when you get up, not when you go to sleep
You hear your favourite song played in a lift
Your home used to consist of beanbags, piles of clothes and a plastic shower. Now it has scatter cushion, a wardrobe and a wet room
You get twitchy if you miss the weather report on the telly
Eating a bucket of KFC at 3am would severely upset, rather than settle, your stomach
Drinking shots and smoking cigarettes guarantees midnight dry heaves and a sinus attack rather than midnight skinny dipping and a Big Mac attack
Comfort triumphs over style in the fashion stakes
You find your self churning out the same old lines your parents did
You choose Fairtrade coffee and organic muesli over pop tarts and chocolate milk
You make sure you’re well rested before attending a concert
People stare at you when you dance. And not in a good way
You find yourself saying things like “Whatever happened to…..?” and “I remember when we only had three TV channels”
You embarrass your children - and it’s expected of you to do so
Your car insurance goes down and your car payments go up
You actually eat breakfast food at breakfast time
The cinema and meal out is the whole date instead of the beginning of one
Sleeping on the couch makes your back hurt
You think wearing a chefs hat while barbequing is a good look (jb?)

If you're middle-aged, then I am too. And, I refuse to be middle-aged yet! So, therefore, you are not middle-aged!
Thank you very much!
