We also contemplate what makes us feel aged; proceed to the comments on this post to share your own. Although if you are only half our age, don’t. You are mere saplings, so enjoy that while we wheeze and wobble along the path of physical and mental decline.

    You know you’re old when you watch teen shows and instead of crushing on the hot young teenagers that you’re supposed to, you fancy their parents instead.

  2. Megan Says:

    I was at work last month when my workmate spotted, grabbed and yanked out a grey hair from my head, 2 days before my 20th birthday. Just the one though (I hope).
    And my 14 year old cousin, who I remember being in my aunt’s tummy and I held when she was 2 days old, is now on facebook as “in a relationship”. Not being funny, but she is WAY too young to be “in a relationship”. Either that, or I’m being like my mum was when I was 14. Damn…

  3. Chris Says:

    What about a nice tuna steak? It’s got the texture and taste (more or less) of meat!

  4. Paul Says:

    I was suprised not to hear what I thought was the definitive “blue movies” story: that the British film censor used a blue pencil to mark up scripts for censorship. Could easily be a big bag of BS though.

  5. Amber Says:

    I’m 25, and I had a jarring “Oh, god, I AM aging!” experience when talking to my 12 year old sister. I was relating a hilarious commercial that was aired in 1999 during the Y2K bug scare, which featured a family going about their normal day when BOOM! Y2K!!! Ahhh! The next shot was of the family huddling around each other, hungry and cold. (The item being sold was a “Y2K survival kit”. I’d kiss the person who managed to find that commercial online, by the way.)

    Anyway, my sister crumpled her eyebrows and said “What’s Y2K again? I can’t really remember. Was that like 9/11?” To be fair, she was only 2 at the turn of the century. But the fact that she can carry on full, thoughtful (if hormone-charged) conversations while not really knowing about any of the things that marked my childhood took my breath away a little.

  6. Emma Says:

    Little known fact – ‘Fox Piss Liquitab’ was in the running as a possible title for the Captain Beefheart LP Trout Mask Replica.

  7. Sophie Says:

    helen i wouldn’t fret about graying, i’m 21 and started getting a few grays when i was about 12! damn genetics! i call them my wisdom hairs 🙂

  8. Ryan Says:

    I never knew pornos were commonly called ‘blue movies’. I have a question related to this – why with porn and sex films, websites and magazines do they use ‘XXX’ – why not any other letters?

    What are you doing with that rag-top Citroen? They’re awful!

  9. Osc. Says:

    I have been known to refer to fireworks as “a bloody racket”. I’m 23, going on 55.

  10. Alex from Herts Says:

    Darnit! I’m only 18, and I’m already graying at the temples. Then again, both my parents did too, so at least this is evidence that I’m not illegitimate.

    I felt old when my dad told me that I looked like Abraham Lincoln when I tried on a stovepipe hat.

  11. Moz Says:

    I feel old when i hear anything currently in the ‘hit parade’. Not because of the usual reason of ‘its just noise! You cant even understand the words!’ etc. No, its because i listen…and i dont get angry about how rubbish it all is. When i was younger, i used to get SO IRATE about what people listen to & buy so they get in the charts. Now, all i feel is a bit….meh.

    I miss that anger….

  12. Liz Says:

    Wow!! My baby daughter has just uttered her first words (apart from mamama and bababa). She heard Helen say “Oh God” in podcast episode no 136 and, implausibly enough, uttered the baby equivalent!
    Thanks for that, podcastress!!

  13. Jenn Says:

    I’m also terrified of fish – haven’t eaten any since I was 5/6!
    It’s the creepy texture…. the way it segments into pieces… this is actually making my hair stand on end and my palms start sweating to think about it….
