Sunday Scribblings

It’s been a long time (again) since I have done one but here goes. This weeks prompt  is Aging, which is kinda good timing since I have just had a birthday two weeks ago.

I don’t mind the aging part, you know getting older and wiser, that’s all well and good for me.  The part that I mind is the gray hairs and using the phrase’s ,  “When I was younger”  and “I did that about 10 years ago”. It didn’t bother me so much before but now it’s starting to sound funny to me. I mean just the other day I was saying to a friend that I hadn’t done something in “like 10 or 15 years”. I’m only 33 I shouldn’t be saying that!!! I was at the store the other day and Time Bandits was on the shelf on sale. I remember watching that when it first came out and that was in 1981 so I was what, 5 yrs old? But I remember watching it when it was on TV like TBS or something so even that would put it around the early-mid 90’s. The cashier looked at me like I was crazy. He said that I was the second person to say that that day. Talk about aging yourself, lol.
