At 25!!!?!?!?! Good heavens! What is your quality of life going to be if you live to be 80 and you're already "over the hill" at 25? Whatever happened to people freaking out about 30? And 40 being the new 30? Yipes!

I will freak out when i get there for the time being i am over the hill ;) and speedily going down.

 

why "over the hill" i mean coming down a hill is much more fun than climbing it...

You're only as old as the woman you feel.

Or man :P

 

I'm actually enjoying being over 40 - just wish the hangovers didn't take so long to clear up :angry:

you know you are getting old when you actually look at the CDs at the supermarket checkout ...you know you do:-)

 

e.g The best of the Nolan sisters, Smokie's greatest hits etc

you really are as old/young as you feel.

I have a friend who is 46 but she feels like a 20year old and she still gets carded at clubs etc. It is just how she sees herself...somehow thats how other people see her as well.

 

I am turning 35 soon and feel better, younger, more vibrant than ever...life is good and I want to enjoy every single day...instead of feeling 'old'

Well, I'm obviously "past my shelf life" no matter how you look at it. On the one hand, it's not that I enjoy partying more than when I was younger, I'm just better at it now. On the other hand, I have no patience for obnoxious people who don't know how to party or can't handle their liquor. And really loud, hot bars or clubs irritate me now and they didn't back in my college party days.

My age (35) was beaten into me at The Killers concert on Monday. One of the bouncers was going down the line with an "Over 21" stamp for those wishing to purchase alcohol. Obviously everybody had to get their ID's out regardless of age. He came up to me, ignored my ID, looked at my ever increasing amount of grey hairs and stamped my hand. The BASTARD!

:lol: Yes, that is a benchmark of "being old" in the U.S. I remember the first time it happened to me at a bar too. They gave me alcohol without carding me. I stood there for a second, too stunned to react, then said, "Erm, don't you want to see my ID?" The bartender was like, "No, ma'am. It's ok." :o Double whammie. Not getting carded AND being called ma'am. :(

 

On the other hand, the last time I went home I was 27 and had been living here so long I forgot about needing an ID when I went to the bar. To make a long story short, I went out with my brother- the first bar we went to let me in, so by the time I got to the second bar I was feeling no pain. The bouncer at the second bar was a guy I went to high school with, but was a real Barney Fife about the whole thing. I got a little mouthy when he insisted I show him an ID (but I mean, COME ON-- he KNEW I was over 21) and I almost got police escorted out.

The first time I walked into a bar in my life I didn't get ID'd - ok, the drinking age was still 19 in Wyoming, but I was 14 :ph34r: . The bouncer didn't even blink when I walked past.

 

Got carded quite a bit in college though - and the drinking age had gone up to 21 everywhere by then, but I rarely got carded after turning 25. Guess I've always been old... :huh:

Well, I suppose it depends on the bar. Some bars tend to be a bit more lenient- especially if you walk in with the right people. I had the most horrible fake ID ever, but it worked like a charm. Or maybe it was my boobs. Not sure. :unsure: A friend of mine at the university was from Sweden and she let me borrow some of her paperwork, which I used to get myself a picture ID. :D I paid for it though- because every time I walked into a bar I had to do this whole fake Swedish accent. They probably let me in out of pity. :rolleyes:

Oh no - there's more to the story. I got totally busted at that bar - as did the bouncer - when my mom's boyfriend walked in. A cop.

 

I had a shitty fake ID as well, but that's another story involving grey areas of the law ... ahem.
