I have always had a ten-year generation gap with anyone who is two years younger than I am.
I am not a grammar Nazi but their language and usage confounds me.
Their topics all seem Greek, Latin & Mandarin.
I don’t understand the music they listen to…I’m still stuck to the same music that I liked ten years ago because it is safe and familiar, while venturing into new music (is it music?) feels like rushing into a dark alley in sin city.
Video might have killed the radio star, but reality shows definitely killed the music videos.
Whatever happened to all the music channels?
I never knew it was cool to be a loser…apparently kids these days think its ok to display infinite amounts of stupidity.(Not that we were any smarter-but we hid our stupidity much better and we still do)
They always seem to be two steps ahead of me…or behind, if that is the “In Thing” with them.
You know, that is another thing that bothers me…things that are in or out, or things that were like five minutes ago, or soooo like yesterday.
I guess that makes me…soooo like day before yesterday.
Anyone three years younger than me-a KID!
That’s how I see them, and that’s how I’m going to treat them-like a juvenile-post-pubescent-hormone crazed-delinquent.
Which was why I was lucky enough to find a wife whose age was not an issue…I had the good luck of finding a girl who was just within the two year limit…someone who had faced life as an adult-but more importantly someone who could treat me like her baby.
Yep! With her, I get to be the kid, cuz she is the more mature one.
Ga ga goo goo baby!
Once upon a time,
I was full of vitriol
but now on antacids
for quite some while,
but the row of teeth that you see
is not from a grin or a smile
its grit and determination
and just a pinch of guile
I usually don’t open my mouth while people are being stupid…they think I’m trying to compete and outdo them .
