am I really getting old?

Ahh, age. What a wonderful thing. I remember the time when I saw someones birthday was in the 60's and thought they where of the 'older' group, and that was like 10 to 15 years ago. Now I can see them as being friends. Of course, it all does take full swing really. Take for instance three years ago. I am at work, and one of the girls there ask me how old I am. at the time I had just turned 28, and she did the math pretty quick because her responce was "You where born in the 70's?!?" She was 18, so I promptly told her to remember how she asked me that in about 10 years and some 18 year old punk says that to them.

Of course, this goes on to musical taste as well. Here is a wonderful example from a comic I love called 'Imy'

To tell you the truth, this is what brought upon my topic of discussion today. It reminded me of how a couple weeks ago I was talking with some younger women (like 18 or 19) and they referred to the music I was listening to as 'Oldies'. I was listening to classic rock! Yes, folks, music from the 70's and 80's are now considered by the younger generations as 'Oldies'! To my parents and others of older generations, I do apologize for ever knocking your choice in music and calling it 'Oldies' (even though that is what they named that era of music, and they named it themselves... that genre has died sadly, but that's another story for another day) because I can honestly say that the notion that the music that you are listening to is now classified as old really sucks! I have listened to classic rock thinking it was great stuff from an earlier generation, yet when my music is called classic rock I feel like my dad.

Anyway, I am starting to sound like a broken record. OH WAIT!!! The younger generation doesn't know anything about that either, so I better leave before I really date myself.
