    You could almost call this : you know you are old when.

    What are some curmudgeonly things you keep saying and you catch it after you said it.


    Kayaks are plastic Toy canoes.

    'Rap music' is an oxymoron!

    No but I'm starting to do tactical toddler counts when I walk into a restaurant like my dad does. He'll walk if there's more than one, I can handle up to four.

    Look with your eyes, not with your mouth.

    Maybe that is just a Dad thing...

    I do a somewhat similar thing.
    I dislike crowds, and loud talkers.
    Kids, and kid noise doesn’t bug me.
    It’s the stuff of life, IMO.
    I just don’t want to (have to) listen to the conversations of others.
    Yes, I’m (slightly) anti-social, introverted, and curmudgeonly.

    Same here. And yet playing in bars seems normal behavior.

    I’m somewhat mis-cast, an introvert in an extrovert’s game.
    I’m addicted to the mental stimulation of trying to play/sing well.
    I live for it, gig to gig.
    I have for decades.

    And I'm neither a skinhead nor Jewish :p

    It's just a noise I make when I get up, sit down, etc
    It's not even conscious
    It started a few years back
