How Do You Know When You're Middle-Aged?

My friend Marilyn posted this on Facebook the other day, and I thought it was so funny that I just had to steal share it ...

How Do You Know When You're Middle-Aged?

1. You don't understand what young peasants are talking about.

2. You struggle to read Chaucer in weak candlelight.

3. You hate rowdy taverns.

4. You constantly worry that you might have the Black Death.

5. You don't know or care who Blondel is sleeping with.

6. You tell your wife that Crusaders seem to look younger every year.

7. You struggle with new technology such as the heavy plough and the longbow.

8. You find Gothic architecture too modern.

9. You keep forgetting who the King is.

10. You dream of buying a second hovel in France.

Have a good day. Enjoy your hovel ... as a modern middle-class American peasant, it's what you'll be able to afford.

More thoughts tomorrow.

A different look at the Middle Ages: I like it!\

Waiting for another feast day when the lord of the manor comes up with roast chickens.

11. You wonder when the Renaissance will start.

It took me a bit to get the drift. Outstanding!

Happy to report -- I am not middle aged!

I'm not Middle-Aged either. Though reading Chaucer might stave off boredom.

That was such a long time ago.
