You know you are over 40 if you remember when naps where involuntary instead of a necessity.

If kids' pranks makes your anger boil to the point where rigging up razor wire in anticipation of their next sneaky visit seems entirely reasonable.

If you remember when there was no call waiting and no cell phones. If you remember playing in the sprinkler during the summer. If you were the remote for your dad (and the channel changer on the tv was a dial you had to turn). If your bicycle had the old banana seat and you regularly rode double on the bike (either someone riding behind you or on the handlebars).

You remember when the kids had free roam in the back of the station wagon during road trips.

You remember when 8-Track tapes were a new thing.

You remember when handheld calculators came along.  You learned trigonometry and logarithms with tables and slide rules.

You had to decide between betamax and VHS - and 8 tracks were cool.

You know you are over forty cos you remember you didn't need to wear helmets to ride your bike, your neighbors knew you and it was safe to go into their house for a soda and a cookie.

If you can remember when 10 p.m. was when things got shakin', rather than a sound bedtime.
