    13 VERY Subtle Signs You're Getting Old

    Aging is pretty sneaky isn't it?

    1. Yes, yes, you would like fresh pepper.

    You never used to get pepper — now you get pepper on everything! Guess those tastebuds are getting a little duller and need a kick, aye?

    2. You're suddenly really into cozy slippers.


    You used to get comfy slippers for your mom on Mother's Day, but now you just can't seem to stop getting them for yourself. What is even happening to you??

    3. Actually, you're just really into cozy clothes in general now.


    "Wow, so soft, so loose," you whisper to yourself as you touch some pants at Eileen Fisher. "I must have them to wear at the office."

    4. Instead of hating on the "villainess" Bachelorettes on The Bachelor, you feel either motherly toward them or like you want to befriend them.


    "It's OK, sweetie — you're so young. I used to pull that shit too."

    5. You enjoy the skin care section of Sephora as much as, if not more than, the makeup section.



    6. When you rewatch old shows, you relate more to the parents than to the kids.


    "Well, Emily does have a point..."

    7. You now really love luxury soaps.


    "They're also great for guests! Wait, guests? What am I even talking about?"

    8. You've been using the same mascara for over a decade.

    Unless it has been discontinued and you were devastated before finding a new one to be loyal to for the past five or so years. I mean, if the shoe fits, right?

    9. Your choice of drink is no longer a cocktail.


    "Just give it to me straight — I wanna taste every flavor note." Did I mention the duller tastebuds?

    10. When you meet a cool-seeming person in their early twenties, you don't think, Wow, I wish I was like them — you think, Wow, I wonder if my kids will be like them?

    Now this will only happen if kids are thing you're interested in having, but still, for those of us that it does happen to, WTF?!?!?

    11. You fondly remember the old "there's no wrong way to eat a Reese's" ads.


    Why did they stop making those???

    12. You literally don't recognize ANYONE on the Kids' Choice Awards.

    And pretty much at the MTV Awards, too. Who are these people??

    13. And you've accepted that your parents will always use AOL.
