You know ur getting older...

When...
1) Quite weekends at home mean potluck lunches with close friends...
2) You come back home from office in time to watch perfect bride...
3) Your concept of "late night" means you'v slept at 12pm..
4) You hunt for pubs on the weekend which play "retro music"...the kind you'v "grown up" to
5) You start replacing "I like to gym" with "I need to gym"....
6) 90% of the parties you attend are thrown by spouses or mothers and warrant the need to buy a gift...
7) You can easily put most of your friends into two categories.. "Housewives" or "bankers"...
8) Shopping for weekend groceries is categorised as "spending time together"....
9) You start shopping for clothes that "hide it" rather than "flaunt it"....
10) You have to "plan" and "block time" in advance for boys/ girls night out....
11) Going to a halloween party feels like the "event of the month".....
12) You eat maggie on weekends as a last option rather than the first one....
13) Your more worried about giving the maid's salary on time....rather than getting your own..
14) "Child friendly" is the criteria for selection of restaurants and travel destinations..
15) The key topics of telephone conversations is recipe discussions or stock market status.....
16) 75% of the photographs posted on facebook are about your kids and 95% of your status messages are about your family....
17) You describe getting sloshed over a few margarita's as having a "wild time"...
18) Celebrating a friends bday is not as simple as buying a cheesy, silly and funny archies card followed by a cheap treat anymore....
19) Your parents are more excited to see your kids than to see you....
20) On a Wednesday evening at work you can list down 20 bullets on getting old in less than 20 mins.....

Sigh, Sigh!

Hey Ekta , long time I visited ur blog, had almost stopped reading my fav blogs and I miss that.
I turned 30 few months back, and feel different as 30 is considered as the advent to being old .
But I feel the desire to do much newer things in life now than I was in my teens or college. also read ur other posts , and that really prompts me to write some funny, witty stuff than serious ones. Hope to catch u more often.
Cheers
Amit
