    You purposely write "Teh" on a test cover and a student tells you, "that was SO 2005."

    When you're registering for something online and there's a drop down menu for the year you were born and you have to scroll down a long way to get to your year.

    ...when you realize you're a lot older than most of the kids making these posts about how old they feel.

    -You used a phone just to talk to people.
    -You remember when Call Waiting and Caller ID were innovative.
    -People around mention their first game system was a PS 3 or XBox, and you answer with, 'Atari.'
    -MTV used to play music.
    -You tell people your favorite rides at Disney were 20,000 Leagues under the Sea and Mr. Toad's Wild Ride and you get blank stares.
    -You played dungeons and Dragons first edition.

    -HBO was simply HBO, with no numbers or other suffixes.
    -TV only had 10 channels.
    -Your idea of trolling was to make a wall of public phones ring by themselves.
    -Your other idea of trolling was to find a computer in a store and type in:
    10 TYPE "Wheeeee!"
    20 GOTO 10.

    For the older Star Trek fans, when there was only the U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701: As Scotty would say, "No bloody A, B, C, or D."

    Star Trek movie? What are you talking about? Star Trek is a tv show, not a movie.

    When you start dispensing advice instead of receiving it.

    And speaking of dispensing advice, it's been nearly 20 years since the "Sunscreen" song came out, and what always resonated with me was the verse that goes,




    So you know you feel old when you have pictures from 20 years ago and those pictures are of you in your 20's.

    The column in the newspaper that started it all is even older. Mary Schrich wrote "Wear Sunscreen" in June 1997 for her weekly column in the Chicago Tribune and became a viral email sensation. And that is now making me realize just how old I am. I was in college when the term "viral email" became a thing:

    One interesting note about it. Mary Schmich wrote it but often times it is credited to Kurt Vonnegut giving a commencement that year at MIT. Kurt to his credit always debunk the rumors he wrote it however he found it to be "funny, wise and charming" before adding, "I wish I had written it".

    And that is something else that makes me feel old enough. I remember when Kurt Vonnegut was doing cameos in Rodney Dangerfield movies:

    -Ordering something in the mail? Wait 12-16 weeks for delivery.
    -Want to mail a friend? Wait 6 months fr a reply.
    -The sequel to Return of the Jedi was a comic strip.
    -Star Trek is doing a new series called The Next Generation? It won't last 1 season!
    -Want to play a computer game? Insert the floppy disk and wait an hour for it to install. Every. Single. Time!
    -You write a five page term paper by hand. Your teacher makes 2-3 corrections and says, "Great, can't wait to see the final draft," which you now have to rewrite Completely!
    -Your Hollywood crush now has gray hair, or worse, grand kids!

    You tear up watching the Fred Rogers special last night on PBS. Ditto whenever they play the tribute documentary to Bozo the Clown.
