^^ the only time I take my socks off is when I'm getting into the shower. If I take them off at any time my feet will start freezing no matter what the temp is.


And yes, I leave my socks on for sex! Just ask my wife

I'm going to go with:

You tell people how much easier they have it than you did. That or if you start more than 3 sentences each day with "Back when I..."

Or how about... when you realize, to your surprise, that you can post in oldschool.

when walking around sounds like walking on bubble wrap

hey I usually keep my socks on during sex, my feet get cold! My wife keeps her bra on half the time because she doesn't like her boobs to bounce around. As long as we're both getting our big O's, we're happy.

one of the most noticeable things for me was ...inability to listen loud music. i find myself often enjoying easy tunes, such as background music, classical, instrumentals. same thing in the car, i just get irritated if volume is high.

some other stuff...

-pulling an all-nighter is near impossible. if i do im crippled for next 2 days.
-im slower overall and less flexible
-i started liking certain departments in home depot/lowes, that before were dead boring
-i dont take many risks in traffic. generally don't drive like a bat out of hell
-i enjoy listening to advice from older people, or should say im more patient
-i watch what i eat more often because metabolism isn't as fast anymore

Hell yeah. And you start pining away for how things used to be--and some hairless nutsack posts that you're [old].

And you hope and pray that the ones coming after you don't fuck it all up any worse than you/we already did.

hopefully this is just stress or lack of sleep, but i get confused about doing everyday things sometimes. here's a couple of examples.
-i was putting the groceries away yesterday, and put the carrots in the pantry instead of the refrigerator. A few minutes later, I'm putting some granola bars away in the pantry and realize my mistake. So i pick up the carrots, fully intending to put them in the refrigerator, but instead, open the door to the cabinet under the sink. I catch myself as i'm reaching in, thinking, what the hell is wrong with me?
-often i'll walk to a room with a specific purpose (ie, to get a pen and notebook from the office) and literally have no idea what i what i was going after when i get there. the same thing happens sometimes when shopping.
-i'll reach into the drawer for a pair of socks and instead pull out a tee shirt. its not like i grab the wrong item without looking, i'll stand there, fumble through the shirts and pick one out.

i'm beginning to wonder if this is something serious i need to have looked at.

-injuries take the full 4-6 weeks to heal that the doctors tell you it will
-You have a pimp new phone, you have it to get work email
