You might be getting old if

your six-year-old comes in the room and asks how old you are.

After a moment to remember (cue irony music), I say, "34."

"Oh.  Man."  Sits down in a humph.

"What's wrong with 34?"

"Nothing.  It's I just thought I'd read really far in this book, but I'm only to page 32.  I haven't made it to 34 yet!"

Yes.  You know your old when your age, in page numbers, is just too far for your 6-year-old to read.

And, it's even better when your 8-year-old chimes in, "Don't worry.  You're almost to Daddy.  He's only 33.  That's closer than Mom."
