When is old considered old?
When exactly does getting old turn into, you ARE old? Well, apparently it depends on who you ask. For example, if you tell a four-year old that you are 20, their eyes practically pop out of their heads and they will unapologetic say “Whoa, you’re old!” If you ask a 30-year-old at what age is old, they’ll probably say 60. Well, I’m sure you get my point. Well according to my daughter…not that I asked, she has told me not only that I’m old but that I’m old and crusty. Lol Of course, it’s funny to me because of the way she says it.We were watching the video below. This guy recorded himself 20 years ago as a kid and then recorded a makeshift conversation with his 12-year-old self. Kind of a ‘Back to the Future” video if you will. I have to admit, it was pretty cool but then I said to my daughter,
Me: Hey you want me to record you so that in 20 years you can see yourself. By then you’ll be 36 years old! You’ll be my age?
Without missing a beat
Alexis: Oh no thank you, by then I’m gonna be old and crusty like you!
Me: Wow! Well God forbid that you have a video of yourself looking ‘old and crusty!’
We both laughed and she said she was kidding…kinda.
Needless to say, check out the video of the 12-year-old boy and his ‘not so old and crusty 32-year-old self’. It’s pretty cool! One more thing, if you had a chance to go back and record something to your future self, what would you tell yourself? Humor an old and crusty lady, will ya?
Not So Old and Crusty,
Your Friend Mel :)
