DBD 8.31.11 You know you're getting old when...

So, as you may or may not know, depending on the rapidness with which you z through my comments, I'm going to Vegas this weekend with my buddies. Joy time!

But as I started to break down the roster, I was noticing a shift... this will be the fourth consecutive Labour Day Weekend Vegas trip for me and things have changed a lot since those trips.

Three years ago, it was a mix of people fresh out of college and people still in college, a behemouth of a group at 40. A vast majority of group was singles. In fact, I believe there were only two couples on the trip.

Two years ago, it was seven guys, a pretty different group than the year prior. Still, only one of the seven was in a serious relationship.

A year ago, it was a mix of older and younger friends, with some in long-term relationships, others not. More trending towards the former.

This year? I'm the oldest one on the trip (not by much). Literally only one person from the trip from three years ago; the rest, though good friends, aren't people I've been friends with for seven years. And the trip is almost entirely couples... literally, there are two other single guys. This will be interesting.

So, for me, that's my sign that I'm getting old -- not only are some of my older friends staying home from Vegas LDW because of other obligations (or lack of desire to go crazy), not only are more in relationships, but people are now travelling in couples.
