You also know you're 50 when...
Your main form of aerobic exercise is getting up to change the channel; An obscene phone call makes you chuckle; You think a mosh pit is something found at the center of an exotic fruit; You wonder who'll die firstyou or your money; You wish the "ol' ticker" had a quartz movement"Performance anxiety" refers to your golf game.
