Feelin' Old?

(I received this in an e-mail. Many of you have probably seen it. For those who haven't:)

Just in case you weren't feeling too old today, this will certainly change things.

The people who are starting college this fall across the nation were born in 1987.

They are too young to remember the space shuttle blowing up.

Their lifetime has always included AIDS.

The CD was introduced the year they were born.

They have always had an answering machine.

They have always had cable.

Jay Leno has always been on the Tonight Show.

Popcorn has always been cooked in the microwave.

They never took a swim and thought about Jaws!

They don't know who Mork was or where he was from.

They never heard: "Where's the Beef?", "I'd walk a mile for a Camel", or "de plane Boss, de plane."

McDonald's never came in Styrofoam containers.

They don't have a clue how to use a typewriter.

Do you feel old yet? (Sorry)

Pass this on to the other old fogies on your list.

Notice the larger type, that's for those of you who have trouble reading.

Save the earth. It's the only planet with chocolate!

I know I'm old, so thanks - LOL

Gave daughter's friend a ride home from school the other day. It was warm. Child looked at door and said, "How do I open the window, I don't see a button."

He had never been in a car that didn't have electric windows.

He thought the crank handle was "really cool". Was fascinated by the mechanics of it, kept rolling it down a little, then up a little.

Heaven help us - LOL

This will really make you laugh but feel a little old, too.... Put your birth date in the pop up window after you click on the above link. What happens is pretty interesting. It's also amazing how quickly it computes!! Very cool.

They don't know what's funny about "the Shadow do."

Mystery of old age is that it creeps up on you when you least expect it. My mother used to say, "I really don't know what happened. Yesterday I was a young girl," to which my father replied, "Well that was certainly a rough night!"

Man, I don't want to get any older, it blows. Think I'll end up an old person that hates young people. I'll hit them with my cane :)
