you see your first car (in my case a '72 Dodge Colt 2dr) on the road with Antique car tags.
I think I have a ways to go.. 1979 Buick LeSabre.
When you look forward to a night in.
Actually in the state of Virginia IIRC, you can get Antique tags for car at least 25 years old.
For me, I know I was getting old when the playboy playmates were mind bogglingly young.
or perhaps looking forward to going to bed before 10PM.
The defining moment came for me an my girlfriend (she's only two weeks older than me) about six months ago, when we went to the football and we realised that, out of our 30-odd strong squad, only one of them was older than us.
You can't hear the Mosquito ringtone...
...you think that the original sounded much better than the cover... and will happily tell everyone in earshot.
when you hear your prom theme song on an oldies station...
and you remember it, like it was just yesterday.
Not that they listen. That's the problem with today's youth, no respect for their elders...
Or when the people listening to the tune don't realize it's a cover -- but you remember when said song was originally popular...
Had that conversation with a collegue not to long ago. Their response? "You mean Rage Against the Machine didn't write **** the Police?"
…when your girlfriend refers to you as "my dear."
Ooooo good one.
When you realize that movie X is just a remake of movie Y (and isn't advertised as such). And/or, a movie you saw first-run in the theatre is either a "clult classic" now, or being remade.
You mean like Ocean's Eleven had been made before???
Hehe.. A good example was, I was watching TV when an ad for The Truth About Charlie come on (media-blitz before the movie was released). It took me about 5 seconds to realize it was just a remake of Charade. Which was a great movie. I suspect "TTAC" wasn't so great.
When you yell at your kids amping up the stereo "Turn that cr@p down!" and then realize, it's YOUR cr@p they're playing.
when Time Life issues a compilation of the music you grew up with.

When you are trying to pick up a girl and you forget just why you were trying to pick her up. *sigh*
.... Covered by the Lawrence Welk Champagne Orchestra
When most of the people in trendy pubs look around 14 to your eyes
When policemen and doctors don't look old enough to shave
When you talk about an event that happened in your teens to someone and they think it's history! We have a girl at work who wasn't born when the Berlin Wall came down... it's scary!
When you remember when MTV played music videos.
When you watch classic TV and see a show you grew up on, The Wonder Years on NickatNite comes to mind.
LOL.. I'd forgotten!
I hate it when Doctors call me "Sir".
I hate when a mother tells her kid, "thank the nice man"
I have a piece of the Berlin wall, and we were talking about it a few weeks ago in the coffee shop when we realized the girl serving the coffee was born as the wall was being torn down.
