I so enjoy the cousin to this post, things boys discover!! It has brought many happy mental images to me as I read the list. I can relate to so many of them, I read through some of them almost once a week or more. I'm going through something now though, that made me think about a thread from some of the "old" guys here. If anything that gets posted here can help just one younger guy avoid making the same mistake, it would be so worth it. I just found out that I have to spend over $900 to try to correct problems with my teeth because I "didn't believe in flossing". A lot of money, and a lot of pain, leads me to the reason for this post.

1-When the dentist says, floss everyday, PLEASE listen to them!!

I have used a sonic-care tooth brush, and have rinsed twice a day with Listerene antiseptic mouth wash for almost 20 years. That is also the last time I visited a dentist. I thought that as long as your gums didn't bleed, everything was in good shape. WRONG!! As good as I brushed, and rinsed, without flossing, bacteria was allowed to develop deep in my gums, causing loss of bone in a couple of my teeth. I am a twice a day flosser for life now, and my wallet is still screaming from the effect this has on it as well. I know how it feels when an "old" person tries to give you advise. I always knew more than the "old" person and didn't pay much attention. This one really came back to bite me (no pun intended). Floss, floss, floss!! You won't regret it.

if you don't take care of your teeth when you are young . you won't have to when you are old . because you will have dentures

O.k., here's a few:

* As you get older, your hair will get thinner. The sooner you make your peace with that fact, the better.
* As you get older, you will get fatter. Still trying to fit your size 38 ass into a size 34 jeans is just damn uncomfortable. Wear the 38s.
* As you get older, you will eventually learn about the incredible invention called "reading glasses". You can get them at the Wally-Mart for about 5 bucks. And you will be glad you did.

I'm sure I can think of some more. I'm 46, but I don't feel old, so good for me!

I'm only a semi-old guy... But I am learning new things everyday.

5. When you get the urge to go... you better go. Your bladder doesn't work like it used to.

6. The little lines on my TV screen volume indicater, seem to change color for every year I get older.


I could probably come up with many more, but I'll start there.

I promise I'll be back, because each day I'm getting older.

LOL

7. There is no end to the techno fuck-ups you can make, always in plain view of your kids...such as picking up the TV remote in an effort to answer the phone.

Me again....

8. Songs I grew up to, are now only played on the oldies station.

9. People say the grey in my hair makes me look distinguished, but it only makes me feel old.

I'll be back...

Carl

10. It's ok to lose a game to your kids

11. A nap can be a good friend

12. There is no way to "catch up on lost sleep" - so do your best NOW to not fall behind

14. AT LAST! The phrase "turn off that noise" no longer refers to my music!

15) Your hair turning grey is better than it turning loose.

16) You will repeat certain phrases your parents said to you to your children. The ones that you swore you would never use. ie.. "Because I said so" "are we trying to air-condition the whole outside? Who left the door open?"
