This is a question Turning into your parents

Unable to hold back the genetic tide, I find myself gardening in my carpet slippers, asking for a knife and fork in McDonalds and agreeing with the Daily Telegraph. I'm beyond help - what about you?

Thanks to b3th for the suggestion

for slippers and dressing gowns, Geoff Wayne's War of the Worlds, dismay over my rapidly receding hairline, driving at 20mph instead of 30mph in residential areas (as my dad used to tell me, "It's a speed limit, not a speed target"), correcting other peoples driving, tutting at public displays of affection between couples - there's a time and a place, a fondness of real ales and decent single malts, refusing to go to nightclubs "because when I go out with my friends I like to be able to hold a conversation", despair when lights are left on in a room when no one is in there (not that I currently pay the 'leccy bill), talking politics, watching Newsnight in bed, correcting people on their spelling and grammar, keeping my tools in an orderly fashion so that I can find them when I next need them, not being able to see my tool because of the expanding waistline, fostering a hatred of cats and devising ever more elaborate ways of stopping them shitting on the flower beds, finding Carol Vorderman shaggable, finding Kate Bush shaggable, finding Barbara Windor shaggable, referring to 18 year old blondes as 'totty', being thankful when it rains because it'll be good for the lawn, hangovers that last until 6pm and wearing a tweed flatcap.

I'll be 23 in July......

BTW-my dad listens to Muse, Pulp and various other favourites of mine, is extremely computer literate and has an appreciation of fast cars and fast currys. Perhaps the next QOTW should be 'turning into your kids'?

You are forgiven for every sin - apart from the tweed cap... :-)

Every sin?
Surely not including calling "Jeff Wayne" "Geoff Wayne"?

Honestly, some people...

Sorry about that, uberdeity.
That rare slip qualifies me for the Hypocrisy QOTW.

I'll put it down to the codeine.....

Hangovers till 6pm?
Not unusual for me at all.

My worst was one that lasted to 6pm two days after I stopped drinking.

That's a 36 hour hangover.

I'm 19.
