You find several articles in Saga Magazine very useful and informative.

You stop going to the gym for five months and gain 45 pounds. :( Fuck you, Summer. Fuck you in all your non-stretching orifices.

You start shaving your face. Not just your mustache. (pro tip: Try the "tinkle")

If you sprinkle
When you tinkle
Be a sweet
and wipe the seat!

Someone on Tumblr refers to you as their 'wise lesbian auntie' and you realise they're easily within range to be your child.

Goblin, my Mum had that rhyme needlepointed on a tp holder when I was a kid. Only it was "please be neat and wipe the seat"

 When you make a hilarious cultural reference related joke and the other person doesn't laugh, and you realise that they probably weren't even born at the time of said cultural reference.
 When you get asked for ID, and you point out to the person serving you that you're old enough to be their mother. 
 When you go to a gig or festival and you're the oldest person there by about 15 years
 When you start saying, 'the music nowadays all sounds the same'
 When 11 o'clock is way past your bedtime 
   
 When you realise you can get away with doing almost anything in public, because you're female, getting on a bit, and therefore invisible. It's actually very liberating.

Someone mentions 'House of Cards' and you automatically think of the original Ian Richardson version from 1990...
