Default Which body part first let you know you are getting old?

I suppose for me it was my knees and back. They didn't give me Motrin this morning and my body was in so much pain by late afternoon. :|

My knees and feet. I'm not a senior, but that doesn't mean my body doesn't feel its age.

My schlong ...That was more the AD's than age. To be honest, though, I had to "come up for air" more often as I aged...

My belly when I could no longer suck it in and claim it was all muscle.

My back. I injured it nearly 3 years ago and it never healed (despite a year of physical therapy). It makes me feel old because it's difficult to stand up straight sometimes (because of the pain) and I have to rest (sit or lie down) throughout the day to calm the pain.

Angelique, how did your dental appointment go?

Thanks for asking, Laurie. The office was much nicer looking than I was expecting. They told me what I already knew, but they also told me they could save some bottom teeth, so that was good news. I can't face having the extractions yet. I don't know when I'll ever be ready.

My eyes. I had better than 20/20, and the minute I turned 40 they went.
