When I was your age.......
I love Facebook. It's my friend. I'm completely addicted to farmville - to the point where Bean says that he's a Farm-Widower. (I say he's a drama-king.) Anyway. But what kind of drives me a little insane is all the 15-17 year old kids on there becoming fans of ANYTHING that begins with the phrases "When I was your age" or "When I was a kid". Because really?? They ARE that age. They ARE kids. One of my "friends" is a 17 girl who I love to pieces, but she became a fan of "When I was your age we had to blow on video games to make them work".
She was born in what '93?? There was no blowing on video games in '93. I don't deny the funny of the group or page or whatever it is, but not for a 17 year old..
Or how about this one:
"When I was your age Pluto was a Planet."
umm yeah. It got all demoted WHILE you were still in school dobie.
Nevermind. I love high school kids, the amuse the crap out of me. They think they are so cool, and hey, they are. Plus they have the cutest clothes (that they so should not be wearing), and they are awesome babysitters, and they make me feel young again, but really, they are not 30. ANd that would be the problem.
