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.
So I made a list because I have always loved a good list!
Things that make me feel old:
1.)Seeing a popular car from when I was younger with a Classic license plate.
2.)Listening to old school songs and knowing that those songs are sampled from even older songs, that I also know.
3) Learning the year my favorite songs came out.
4.) Classic rock station plays rock the we listened to in middle and high school.
5.) Snow days are called the night before sometimes. Every single time I think “This would have never happened back in the day.”
6.) Saying “Back in the day”
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.
8.) Stretching in the morning and cracking. A lot.
9.) Being excited about a vacuum for Christmas. And a Neck massager. That thing is amazing.
10.) Fashion. Hearing “The 80’s are back… The 90’s are back…” And remembering when I wore it in the 80’s and 90’s.
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?
13.) Having to scroll down to find my year when entering my birth date. Or picking my age range bracket when taking a survey.
How about you? What are something you see, do or say that make you feel old?
