As someone who is now in their fourth decade of life, let me fill you in on something…getting older is a drag.
But one of the best things you can do is to just keep moving forward and you gotta have a good sense of humor.
Are you ready for a funny dose of reality?
Check out these tweets about getting older!
1. You need to stretch.
Or you need a hip replacement.
I sneezed while reclined and I think I need a new hip

3. How things change…
Where’d that spark go?
In college, it’d be like meh let’s drive to New Orleans, we’re already out.
Tonight, it was meh let’s get a flu shot, we’re already out.
🤙 Party on monsters🤙

4. It sure is…
No way around it, though…
It’s kinda weird being the same age as old people.

5. We’ll see how it goes.
This is very accurate…
People used to call to hang out and I’d be on my way there in five minutes. Now it’s like, “What are you up to in June?”

6. I’ll be in bed at 7:30 tonight.
After my bath.
One of the most disappointing aspects of getting old is realizing that the only way to get extra sleep is to go to bed earlier

7. You’re wild and crazy!
What happened to us?
Pulling an all-nighter after 40 is not having to get up once during the night to pee.

8. Put some clothes on!
You’re gonna catch a cold!
You know you’re getting old when you look at 18 year old girls out on the town and think, gees aren’t they cold?

9. The sad truth.
A lot of alone time.
People in sitcoms are always meeting up for lunch, hanging out in the park, going to the gym together, taking cooking classes…as if adult life wasn’t 99% being alone and tired…

10. Two choices.
There’s no in-between.
adulthood means choosing between being chronically dehydrated or peeing every twelve minutes

11. Wayyyy back in the day.
Don’t mess with me kids, I was born in the 1900s, I’ve seen some shit
