This is a question Getting Old

Drimble asks: When was it last brought home to you just how old you're getting? We last asked this in 2004, and you're eight years older now. Eight. Years.

Old enough to be...
One evening Mrs. Sleekloon and I were round at a young workmate's house on a Friday evening. He was about 23 at the time and his 18 year old sister and her friend had dropped by to cadge a drink before heading out clubbing. My wife and I got chatting to the friend and the conversation covered all sorts - politics, science, other stimulating topics - when the young lass says, "It's great to be able to chat about these things. I don't get to do that a lot with people my own age," at which point we pointed out that we were quite a bit older than her, "Well, yeah," she says, "I know that, but it's not like you're twice my age or anything..."
It suddenly hit me that I was actually old enough to be her dad - bugger!
