When did I become the oldest person in the room?

Some days I feel so old I am willing to bet that with very little effort, I could fart dust. I used to be able to go 100 mph everyday and half the night but now I need a nap after walking to the mailbox. The last few years I have started basing my RSVP's on whether I will be able to arrive at home in time to watch Everybody Loves Raymond before my pre-bed recliner nap. 99.9% of the time a nap sounds more appealing than any social opportunities and I really don't think it's lack of "quality social events" but rather my increased NEED for sleep. During my 20's, 30's and well into my 40's the idea of taking a nap during the day was for people who were ill or the parents of toddlers. I really think someone should warn all the under 30's...so consider yourself warned. My naps make Rumplestillskin look like an amateur.
