Should I Panic?

I just realized something - with this next birthday, I'll be leaving my current demographic of "males, 18 to 34". What do I do? Do I have to sign up for something? Should I be worried? Will I get anything in the mail, like a welcome packet for my new demographic? What is my new one anyway? Males, 35 to...oh crap, where does this one end?

Ah, screw it. I'll just go have some beers with friends next Friday night.

BH: Welcome! Heh...nope, not losing any hair. More of it is going grey, though.

TK: Yep. As the scholar Homer Simpson says, it's the cause of - and solution to - all our problems.

Time for a walker, some prune juice, and bedtime at 7 pm. I live near an elderly assisted care facility (but I bet in your day they called it the very un-p.c. old folks home!) and those people seem to go to bed so darn early! I hope when I'm that age, I don't think of retiring to bed before 10 pm on most nights. I need sleep but I need stimulation more!

Happy birthday! I had similar thoughts about changing demographics when I turned 35 a couple of years back. A welcome packet would be an excellent idea.

A couple of days ago I got a call from the Nielsen ratings people--who had "no further questions" following the second one, which put me in the 35-49 demographic. I think that means I got dropped into the Old, Boring, and Might As Well Be Dead bin.

One of the great things about turning 40 is that I no longer worry about stuff like this.

hey bro, time to start thinking about that prostate, and though I'm not really comfortable talking to you about this, I would seriously consider extensive hop therapy as per Rooftop Brew.

It ends at 36. And then 37. And then 38...
