- Jello shots. Someone who will remain anonymous on my blog to protect their reputation argued with me one day that you're never too old for Jello shots (the someone is a couple years older than I), but I did not concede. I'm definitely too old for Jello shots.
- Pop music radio stations. I sometimes turn on the local pop station to learn about what the kids are all listening to and I can usually handle about 2-3 songs before I get so annoyed by what crap it is and turn it off. My brother-in-law cracked a joke at me the other day about how I complain about "those kids and their damn rock and roll music." He's right. I do sound old.
- Amusement park rides. I'll ride a couple. Maybe a roller coaster or two. That's it. I get dizzy and barf on anything that goes around. I have a messed up tailbone that can't handle wild coasters anymore. The older you get, the less appealing it is to be whipped around like a rag doll until you toss your corndog. Unless you're my Uncle Dave. He never has seemed to tire of Kennywood rides. I guess it's not a genetic trait that made its way to me.
- Concerts on school nights. We saw They Might Be Giants last night. It was flipping awesome. They played "Particle Man." I screamed. Amazing! That said. . . we were out until 11pm. I get up at 5:30. I'm too old for that nonsense. Pass the coffee.

Some of them I do anyway because I'm bull-headed, but that's a different post for another day. Here are some things I've discovered I'm too old for:
