When I'm 64, and other reminders that you are old.

I remember when the Beatles first arrive, and I remember hearing this song for the first time and thinking "64 is old!" Well, on December 25th I made it. I am now 64 years old, the subject of a Beatles song.

So let's list some things that prove you are chronologically old:

You remember when rock music was considered a fad that would fade in a couple of years.

You remember hippies and the whole 1960's bit.

You remember when people only had land line telephones, and if you called them and got a busy signal, you had to call them back.

You remember when grown up people were referred to as "girls and boys." But only certain grown up people (women and coloreds). Hell, you remember when calling a person "black" was considered derogatory, but using the N-word wasn't.

Add some more, please.
