    Start talking about other people. As far as I now, our relationship is progressive. But I sure wish you stop joking old man. How are you old man? $%&#@&+%$#%/? "Wait..I'm 63!" He goes!". Is 61 old? C'monnn! This post was edited by CosmicWunderkind at July 21, 2021 7:25 AM MDT

    I don't joke about anything, I am always very serious, ha ha. 61 is older than they are. I was in my 30s when I overheard some whippersnappers referring to me as 'the old guy'.
    I am fine.

       Wait, if she hadn’t invited me to the ladies room to talk with her right then, it never would have led to such personal topics. Grrrrrrr.

    You could either segue into another topic or just be honest and say you don't care to talk about it.

      I tried both options. Now I’ll be sleeping on the couch for a week and not one sandwich is being made for me.

    Look on the bright side - it's only a week.  Could have been longer.

    "Pardon me, but this conversation is making me uncomfortable here. Can we finish it at my house with a glass of wine?"

    I ask a completely different question to whatever they maybe babbling about.

    That doesn't work with my sister. Once she starts talking about her cats or her lower digestive system, the only thing I can do is tell her my battery is running low.

    That is one of the nice things about having an old cell phone - batteries don't last that long. :)
