I just saw a Volkswagon Jetta with classic car plates this morning. That car is a classic?

Already?? That was the big car when I was younger. Seeing that got me thinking about all the things that I do or say that really make me feel much older than I think I am.

7.) Realizing that times have changed so much and I can’t tell my kids to just go outside and play and be home by dark. That’s not allowed anymore. The way we played verse the way they play is so weird to me sometimes.

11.) When my kids says “What’s a beeper?” Or a cassette tape, or a CD. And remembering when I got a boombox for Christmas and was so happy. (Also, these are considered “Vintage” now?? Since when!?!?)

12.) Saying “I’ll google it.” And thinking about encyclopedias and wondering if people still have these in their houses?

  1. Ha ha. A walkman for sure and those tape to tape blasters. Music usually takes me back to places from the long past. Now you have my nostalgia buds in overdrive.
