10 signs you are getting older

Well, this is a pretty dorky list.  However TPP is quite proud, even with a birthday breathing down his neck, that only two of those 10 categories fit at all (along with my jeans).  Based on observations of my acquaintances, who are generally getting older too, some of the signs you're getting older might be:
1. You have no idea what's on television after 10:30 pm.  2. You don't recognize people in the celebrity pages any more, and what you consider "oldies" in music and movies are all over 40.  3. You travel to foreign countries on tours (oh, the horror of it!).  4. You greet your friends by asking them when they're going to retire.  5. Waitresses and clerks automatically give you a "senior discount".  6. Middle aged people start holding doors open for you.  7. You think your Subaru Forester is a pretty flashy vehicle.  8. Fund raisers want to talk about your legacy and remembering them in your will.  9. You debate about replacing deceased pets.  10. None of your friends have any kids in school.  
Well, with such a young readership, TPP doubts any of these resonates loudly.  What was missed?

Hey, now...I'm in my mid 20's and think my beloved Subaru Forester is a pretty snazzy and flashy vehicle. Maybe it's bias or maybe I'm older than I think...
