Am I that old?

Category: Random Thought

So, of my new tattoo my brother says, “Oh, a heart shaped box. Isn’t that a Nirvana song?” He’s 25. Earlier that day my assistant, Sarah, didn’t know who Hole was by name. She’s just over 22, and is totally into music.

Either people don’t follow pop-culture, or I’m getting old, or both.

    hey, wait…ive got a new complaint..

    or sometimes people ask rhetorical questions…as in, “isn’t mike the gay?” I know you are the gay, just as i know nirvana has a song called heart-shaped box

    also, youre 27…not old. But i do believe you had quite a few michael jackson and madonna (i love her, shes delicious like a chocolete) tapes when nirvana was at the height of their popularity!

    Apparently 60 is the new 40… Maybe by the time we’re both in our 60’s, 80 will be the new 40. 🙂

    If you can’t name a Jonas Brother, welcome to the club, we’re officially old.

    gosh, I remember first buying Heart Shaped Box at the record store! I have a vivid memory of my friend taking off the wrapper of the cd!

    It’s possible they just aren’t into Nirvana / Hole. *shrug* I only have a mild interest, myself.

    You at least know the names.

    Oh, I feel older… for Halloween, Hubby and I dressed up as Paul and John from Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Heart Club Band and this 20something asked “Who are you supposed to be?”

    Hubby replied, “Do you know the Beatles?” and she said, “I’ve -heard- of them.”

    I weep for the future. 🙁

    Will you still like me if I’m not that into Nirvana? Actually, not into it at all….
