I remember growing up and seeing old guys, and they all had a healthy dose of idiosyncrasies. I stayed at this one guy's place for a week. Before I could park in the driveway, he had to inspect my old station wagon for oil leaks. No leaks were allowed on his concrete. He was a geezer.


I never, ever thought I'd be one of them. When did I know?


That's the question I'm asking you.


Sexual and bodily function answers are not allowed. Not because we're prudes, but because as geezers, we've already heard them all. So let's be more creative, positive, and happy.


My answer - I knew I was a geezer when I realized I have a 2003 truck and it still looks new.


Now all of you younger people, your day is coming. No reason to rush toward it, but better embrace it as it is inevitable - or you've cashed in your chips.


Last thought - geezerdom is not gender specific, so this question is aimed at everyone.

I know we can't discuss sexual or bodily functions, but I realized I was old when the discussions changed from the first subject to the second subject.

How about when I learned my truck has a blinker alarm. Apparently at freeway speed when the blinker is on for a long time it makes a beeping noise. I think I just hit geezer hood.

  I wince when I see where some people put their body piercing. Saw a young woman the other day that had a piercing from just above the chin that came out through the lower lip. Ouch!

  Now get off my lawn.

You can afford a new truck, but do not see anything wrong with your 10 year old truck.  And don't want to spend what they want for a new one.

You know you're a geezer when you come home from a 12 hour day at the hospital, and it wasn't for your aging parents this time.

When the kids you are complaining about are in their 40's.
