I saw this headline -- "50 Things That Look Just Like Your Childhood" -- and I thought, "I can't wait to see these childhood items." As I scrolled through the old pics of pop culture, I started noticing that half of the items were from my grown-up days. I realized that many objects were items I purchased for my kids.

I recall the first time something made me realize that I was "really" getting older. I was watching Sunday football when the announcer stated, "Dave Megget, still a threat at 35."

I was 35 at the time and thought, if I were a football player, I would be considered old; I aged that day, and this article just aged me.
