I Resemble That Remark

Top 13 most pathetic things about being in your 30's

1. All of your Hard Rock T-Shirts start to rip and fall apart.

2. You catch yourself having daydreams about Ford's new minivan.

3. Your favorite athletes are no longer just richer and better looking than you . . . now they are younger than you too.

4. Atari games are now sold as "nostalgia" - oh the shame!

5. When you log on to Myspace.com . . . you are "that guy you parents warned you about".

6. All those years of blasting your Walkman have caused premature loss of hearing.

7. The good news is that now that your deaf, you no longer hear the voices in your head.

8. You no longer get carded at the liquor store.

9. Your brand new iPod has more memory than ENIAC

10. An adventurous evening is watching Stage 7 of the Tour de France on OLN.

11. Sure, you've got 752 channels on TV, but you can't even understand the freakin' remote.

12. Your favorite people to hang out with are your friends' toddlers.

13. Two Words - Ear Hair.

Very good list, Ben. Your list works pretty good for me too as I have almost 20 on you.

Hale - the list works for all who have walked onto a college campus and felt that "Dude, I'm old" feeling.

Sadie - We're not so far apart, my dear. I trust you have no ear hair, but I can all but guarantee that you remember fondly the days playing Atari back when games were known as "Cartridges".

I have the hearing loss, but I still get carded at liquor stores. Maybe I should stop wearing shirts with little cartoons on them?

The big three o is creeping up on me slowly.

I am getting a sudden urge to do something with meaning, or do nothing at all.

But I have been doing that for so long...

Sadly, most of these relate to me. And being halfway thru my 30's, I do remember the Atari cartridges!

Those were the days...

Minivans? I'm not yet in my 30's, but I guarantee you will never catch me daydreaming about driving a minivan.
