  • You know all the answers but no one wants to hear them
  • An afternoon nap just happens
  • You find you have developed an affinity for sherry and shredded wheat
  • You have to invite a friend over to tell you where you left your glasses
  • You know you have three children and a dog – you’re just not sure which one is named Toby
  • You tell people exactly what you think of them – because you can!
  • You are no longer able to read the phone book, menus, or your watch but there is no chance you will admit it
  • You would rather drive than drink
