The Day Finally Came: I'm Old!

Whelp, the day finally came, I officially said "I'm old today."

Want to know why?  I read an article about a video game that I had heard about and I literally knew NOTHING about what they were writing about.

I didn't understand the lingo, I didn't understand the concept of what they were trying to do and I was like "Oh my goodness, what the fuck is this?  I must be old because I have no idea what they're talking about."

Now I know how my grandmother felt when I would spout off about programming on my TI 99-4/a, but she would sit there and listen and I'm sure she was saying "What the fuck is he talking about."

I honestly never thought this day would come, I'm cool, I read, I keep up with current technology, but you know what, I have a life too...and a job - so I guess I don't keep up that well.  Technology is innovating so quickly now, I figure that by the time I hear about it - it's either going to go belly up or it was hot 5 years ago.  Heck I just found out about MySpace!

But it's here and I accept the consequences, but at the same time, I think that I can now yell "Hey you kids, get off my lawn." and really own it, because I'm old now!
