^ Same. Although I really wanted a Harry Potter style robe for graduation! But my SA was too bad for me to go.

A-level results day - Arrrrgh! I remember that day. When I arrived at school, my teacher grabbed me to ask me to open my results next to him. He looked very worried, so I knew I'd messed up before even opening the envelope! He rang my first place uni for me and luckily I managed to get in without the grades, which I thought was strange as I was supposed to get AAB-ABB. I got ABC. I got a D in the subject I wanted to study haha.

Graduations are a bit of an ants-in-your pants inducing day. Although Parminder Nagra got an honorary degree that day and that added a bit of excitement.

I was so happy and pleased on A level results day. Off to first choice university, everything is looking up! Graduation I only went to so I could wear the robe and because my sisters did and they had pictures.

Alright, Alan Sugar. Lend us a bil?

Seriously though - it does annoy me that at school they never encouraged people to learn a trade and make their own way.

You start to remind yourself of certain men you may have looked down on in youth because your parents or adults around you spoke poorly of them.

When your son is talking about a group of "old men" at the climbing gym he's been to and you ask him what he means by "old" and he says "dunno, about 40 maybe? they were bald" And that's 10 years younger than you

This has probably been mentioned already...but when you see an old bloke across the street and realise you were in the same year at school.

^ I have seen someone who was in the same class as me the other day and he looks 10 years older than me, he hasn't aged well, must have had a hard paper round.

When you have a cough and it seems to linger. Then you get a bit cough gaspy once in a while. Basically my immune system isn't what it used to be. Smoking those cigars probably didn't help either.

When you're 'just trimming a few wild stragglers', regarding eyebrows. I think this is something i need to include every few regular/beard shaves now. Not to mention the ear lobe fuzz that's becoming coarser each year

I saw a video t'other day of someone putting hot wax on another man's eyebrows, ear holes and nostrils. Then he ripped it all off in one go.

Damn. It hurts to be man beautiful.

I don't know why people worry so much, I rarely trip over my ear hair and I can still (just about) see through my eyebrow jungle.

I don't know why my dad won't do his eyebrows. He already shaves every day, which is surely more effort.

Ouch! That's an extreme i'd rather swerve.

It's so easy, i didn't even have to look it up. I run a fine-tooth comb through each eyebrow and stop where the few long one's are left poking out.

Joking aside, I've just done my eyebrows, ears and nose (I do actually do them quite regularly - and more regularly as time moves on) and found myself thinking of you whilst I was doing it. No offence, but I hope that's temporary!

I think I realised I was getting old when I had to start cutting my toenails (so far, only the big toes) with wire clippers.

I brushed my hair entirely to the side the other day. I wanted big hair and clarity. All I got was grey hair lol

When you prefer to watch a DVD at home to going to the cinema, so you can stop and start it when you need a wee.

^Haha, yes indeed. The prostate can sometimes cause that little bit more inconvenience (not to mention sleep disruption) for us older blokes.

... you start standing on the escalator more often than you run up it and when finding out that your apartment is on the 10th floor suddenly helps you overcome your fear of lifts

I did 12 nightshifts in the last 15 days. 12 hour ones.

Obviously I'm going to be tired.

I have four days off now.

I slept 14 hours and it took me 15 minutes to get out of bed. Not because I didn't want to (had to pee) but because my body was so sore.

I'm only 40 FFS lol
