Well it happened to me for the first time. My 18 year old son bested me wrestling around. I was flat wore out and he kept me down. Now sure, I could have hit him a couple times and evened things up or done some other dirty trick but this is my son. Anyhow I never figured this day would come, dont know whether to be ashamed of being so out of shape my kid could whoop me or be proud my boy's man enough to wrestle his dad down.

It's all downhill to the grave yard from now on my friend. Enjoy the ride!

When I hit 40, 40 hit back.

It's not been as much fun since. . .

I got a hair cut yesterday, and the 24 yo girl was trying to sell me a color job to hide my grey hair.

Blond and grey beats bald anytime, IMHO.

Oh it gets worse, I took the boy to his first sniper match last year he got 4th place, I got 5th. We hit another sniper match later in the year and he again beat me out. The last deer we shot his is substantially larger than mine. I think I know how the old lion feels before he wanders off to die.

Let's not go into the hair thing, not grey yet but there's definitely a thin spot.....

It is only going to get worse faster.

Grow old gracefully is a damn lie, you fall apart in hunks.

Screw that, I turned 40 this year too.
If some youngster wants some he better
pack a lunch son or not. I would not hurt anyone
but I am only 40 I repeat only 40.

I didn't start to feel old until I hit 45.

40? Nah, that ain't old. The real fun in life is just beginning. Now you have the money and wisdom to do it better than when you were 20.

As for your son besting you, be proud then go have a beer with him.

I heard that the Eskimos put their old folks in a kayak, and send them out with the Spring ice floes. Sort of a "death with dignity" thing.


Jus' saying.

Link Posted: 8/3/2009 5:15:09 PM EST
I'm not quite 40 but this got me wondering if I could still take my boy in wrestling.................Turns out I can still own his ass. Maybe he'll do better next year when he's seven.

I met my second wife at 41.

I had my youngest daughter at 44. She's six now.

I taught her to swim last year, and we're working on the bike.

Life doesn't end at 40. Quit the whining.

The saying is "Men get distinguished, Women just get old."

22 years ago I thought 40 was old. Now that I am 62, not so much.

Dibs on young buck's guns and ammo since experience trumps age.

39 next month. My 30s went by way too fast.
Link Posted: 8/3/2009 5:39:16 PM EST
I just hit 40 last week. It hasn't hit back yet, probably because my four year old daughter keeps me young.
Link Posted: 8/3/2009 5:40:20 PM EST

I turn 35 next month and my 16yr. old twin boys just recently beat me at arm wrestling.......It took them both at the same time using both arms each!!!
I was pretty proud of them, but now I gotta watch my 6.
Link Posted: 8/3/2009 5:44:11 PM EST
fugg that!

im 41 with the body of a 25 yr old and the mentality of a 12 yr old!
Link Posted: 8/3/2009 5:47:06 PM EST
I agree - quit the whining or go die!!! Freud wrote on the fears of fathers being "bested" by their sons.........well, duh, they are going to get stronger as we , if we are lucky enough, get older - be proud they lived and so did you..............my son goes off to college in a few weeks - I will miss the hell out of having him around and some of my anger at his leaving is due to the underlying fear (fear feeds anger) of having to handle my sense of loss conflicting with my being so proud of him......Life is complicated - just be glad you had a child to love and they, hopefully, love you back......
Link Posted: 8/3/2009 5:49:39 PM EST
I wouldn't feel bad losing to my son. I'd be proud... now, any other young man that age and well... that's another story.
Link Posted: 8/3/2009 5:53:48 PM EST
40? You ought to raise a house full of high school wrestlers. My boys were making the old man hump up when they were 12. By the time they were 16, hope they don't hurt you too bad.
Link Posted: 8/3/2009 5:53:57 PM EST
You can bet I'm proud of the boy. Hell secretly I hope he beats me in the upcoming sniper match this next saturday. Dont get me wrong though, I'm damned sure not gonna let him beat me. He'll have to earn it.
Link Posted: 8/3/2009 5:54:42 PM EST
I feel young.

Dont roll over and die just yet. Get in shape and be in condition to enjoy life.
Link Posted: 8/3/2009 6:00:23 PM EST
I lost for the first time also, though I'm 52. And only because my damn ankle broke. I'm sure it would have happened sooner or later, though I would have preferred later.

Gettin older sucks balls. Hypertension meds, statins, hiatal hernias, Prilosec. It's the "snowball headed for Hell."

I retire Feb. of 2kIX. Difficult to believe.

I used to take my son down to a church parking lot for a good ol foot race. When I turned 43, he was 13, he started to smoke me...I am now 48 and probably couldn't sprint 20 feet.
He ended up qualifying for the state track meet in the 100 and 200 meters. It sucks getting old.......

When I was in my late teens/early 20's, my daddy told me to NEVER fight an old man, cause he would just have to really hurt you or kill you if you were a lot younger cause he couldn't hold out for a long fight.

As I am rapidly approaching 40, I agree with his statement.

I think they said death with "frigidity", not dignity. "Bye grandma!"

My Son after he turned 18 loved to hear Dad Squeal. I adopted another one and they both two years ago decided to wrestle dad around. It took both of them but in the end I felt like an old Coon with a Coyote on each end as they were stretching me out and laughing the whole time.
