I must be in a time warp, a time bubble or at the very least some sort of rum-induced time machine. I am fully aware of being 50. There’s really no getting around that when I look in the mirror every day and see the
gray silver hair and not-so-fine lines around my eyes lips chin face.
And I really do know that its 2013. But Damn, when someone says, “that happened 5 years ago” my brain IMMEDIATELY goes to 1995. Or at least sometime in the 90’s. How can it be possible that 1995 was REALLY 18 years ago. Holy Shit. There are adults walking around that were BORN in 1995.
(And NOW I remember registering Tater for Kindergarten and having to write down MY date of birth for something and the long list of other parents above me were all born in the late 80’s or early 90’s. I told the teacher that I was the oldest person here and she said, “Oh no, there’s a grandmother over there”….I turned and saw Grandma Moses snoring in a rocking chair. Gee, Thanks.)
Here’s a shocker for ya ~ Pretty Woman came out in 1990 and Julia Roberts was only 21. Yep, 23 years ago.
And Holy HellBalls, Harrison Ford is 71 YEARS OLD!!!
I think I’ll just stop writing the date, and let my little brain be happy. I’m not gonna think about this CENTURY, or the fact that the 90’s were 20 years ago. “A few years ago” will mean whatever I want it to mean ~ and those 18-30 year old ‘kids’ can just figure out the date I’m talking about, or ignore me ~ whichever is easier. (Like that’s a tough choice.)
But FIRST I’ll go to Wal-Mart and look through the $5 movie bin, find Star Wars, Raiders of the Lost Ark and Pretty Woman and have a movie night just for me….cause I’ll be damned if Richard Gere isn’t 64.
Thanks for reading my blog ~ if you want to leave a comment, I promise I’ll read it and respond because I LOVE comments. And if you really love it, share it with your friends and have a margarita while you’re reading the blog out load. At the bar. With other people near by. It’s even FUNNIER then! 🙂 Cheers!
