DBD 4.10.12 I'm too old for this "stuff"


"Stuff". He said "stuff".

Today's DBD is all about getting old -- a topic half the DBD will tell me I know nothing about.

But the recent run of marriages and engagements I'm seeing of friends all around me has driven some conversations about maturing and growing up and I dunno, I stopped paying attention after a while.

Anyway, what were once regular pleasures that you're now too old for? Is it something like partying? Staying up all night catching up on a tv series? Milking a cow?

Here's my list, thus far:

1) Drinking and not worrying about the consequences. I don't get hangovers too often, but I never drink without worrying about it, taking preventative measures, etc. And seldom will I have a beer on a weekday without thinking what else I could be doing with that day. Gym? Write essays? Feed homeless children?

2) Go to bars in Berkeley. I'm pretty sure I crossed this point... two years after college? Unless I'm with older people and there for a sporting event, I just can't come up with a legitimate justification at this point.

3) Carelessly eat junk food. Obviously, everything I eat isn't healthy. But gone are the days of "oh, I can't figure out what to eat for dinner, lemme just walk to Cancun and eat a super burrito".

4) Spontaneity. And with all of this, a decline in being spontaneous. Friends went out for bowling last night. No, I couldn't come. I had to go to the gym. And then work on essays. Of course, spontaneity still exists... it's just with work and other obligations, it's more limited than before.
