At the age of 20, I was a Young Fogy.

Now that I am 56, I discover to my horror that I am becoming an Old Fogy.

One symptom of this is what The Greaseman used to call "geezing" (the 
gerund for what old geezers do - they geeze). Any sentence that begins 
"Thirty years ago, when I was..." or "I remember when..." or "Led 
Zeppelin..." should alert the speaker to the fact that he/she is geezing.

The cure for that, of course, is another cup of Maple Mead.
