How Old Is Old?

We have an “aging” population.  Individually, with each passing day, each of us inevitably gets a day “older”.  But at what point do we become “old”?  While each of us can almost certainly think of someone we would characterize as “old”, is there ever a point at which we think of ourselves as “old”?  How do we make those judgments?  What difference does it make when someone is thought to be “old”?

    We were at DIA a few days ago on our way home to the Springs. We stopped at a restaurant to get a meal and were "carded" when we ordered beers. The only thing that made it better was that the young waitress said to me "I would never have guessed you were THAT old!" I think that was a kind of compliment but it does touch on this issue.
