Kids these days!

Conversation between two undergraduate women in line at Einstien Bagel on the GW campus:
1: “So have you been talking online?” 2: “No, on the phone! Every week!” 1: “Even better! Is he seeing anyone?” 2: “I doubt it.” 1: “That's so cool.” 2: “He's so sweet. Last night he told me he had this new music and that I was gonna love it. He said I'd start taking my clothes off the minute I heard it.” 1: “Ahh, that's so sweeeet. I wish I knew someone who would talk to me like that.”
This is what passes for smooth these days? Is this what it feels like to get old?

Hey, when I saw a girl who couldn't have been more than 11 years old or so wearing a shirt that said, "Porn Star" I wept for society. Either I'm totally a geezer or not as hip as I once thought I was, but I'd never let a daughter of mine wear something like that... *sigh*.

Hopefully for her sake she was talking on a land line now that the FCC has asserted they control anything that can receive and play a digital file. Talking about the removal of clothing may run afoul of Michael Powell if someone accidentally intercepts the communication and files a complaint.

I love young women.

Yes, face it, you are an old man now. It's ok. Seriously, young people are 'different' than we were at the same age. Sadly, we aren't even that old. [I bet people said the same thing about us just a few years ago.]

Dude - I hear you on this one. It's so sad. There really does seem to be a break in how one goes about things at, I think, the 25yr. old mark, although it's a fuzzy line.

Where the hell's my cane?

That is why I only date under 25's.

Mr. Musclehead: That is *so* wrong. ;-)
