0) The time difference between thinking you need to pee and HAVING TO PEE RIGHT NOW reduces. 1) You have a pair of spectacles in every room in the house. 2) You know as fact that there has been no good music since [Insert Year of Choice]. 3) You buy clothes for comfort and warmth, not style. 4) You are quite prepared to complain, in public, and loudly, and have no embarrassment about drawing attention to yourself. 5) Once you get started on a thing you tend to go on further than you intended. 6) Young people start speaking a different language. 7) You can remember the recession before last. 8) You remember every sports commentator actually playing the sport they are commentating about. 9) You cannot do two nights out on the trot. 10) Knees. Back. Feet. Hips.

I've got the lot except for the glasses thing. One pair of over priced varrifocals that I can never find.
Panic, Chaos, Destruction. My work here is done. Drink. Get drunk. Fall over - P O'H OK, I will win to day or my name isn't Ethel Crudacre! - DDEthel Crudacre I cannot live by bread alone. Bacon and ketchup are needed as well. - Trollslayer Have a bit more patience with newbies. Of course some of them act dumb - they're often *students*, for heaven's sake - Terry Pratchett
I used to have varifocals, but I went back to separate reading + distance pairs, simply because I could never do anything above my head. Because I had the VFs I never had reading glasses on me, so if I needed to use a screwdriver, or plug a cable in I had to tip my head back so far I still couldn't see the damn thing!
So now I carry two pairs all the time, and always have the wrong glasses on... I can't win here.

0) I can still get from the pub in Derby to Pride Park Stadium after three pints, but only just. If there is a queue at the turnstiles I start to panic a little. 1) Eyes and teeth are the only parts of me that are in perfect working order. 2) 1985, But I've known this since I was 17. 3) I just wear whatever the wife gets me for Christmas and birthday
