What’s Happening to Me?

I can’t believe it. I don’t know what to do. I’m at a loss. A complete loss. What is happening to me?

Earlier today I was standing in line at 711 with Gus. A huge group of teenage boys swarmed the back of the line. It’s Friday so they were going on and on about their weekend plans. Their weekend plans including lots of f*%king this chic or that chic. These proclamations were followed by lots other four letter words strung together in some very creative ways.

Before I knew what was happening, before I could stop myself, it came out:

“Do you think you guys could watch your language?”

I said it. I really said it. Even worse, I meant it. Oh my God. Oh my God. I don’t know what to do. This means I’m a grown up. I’m really a grown up.

What if I turn into an even uncooler grown up? What if I start saying things like sneakers and slacks? What if I lose all touch with my hip side? Maybe I already have since I just wrote hip side.

Somebody help me. It happened. It really happened to me.

I think I’m going to run out and get another piercing this weekend. Will that help? I don’t think so. I’m pretty sure I’ve reached the point of no return.

    Well hello there and welcome to the blogosphere. Sorry to hear of your uncoolness. Soon you’ll be skreetching at kids to get off of your lawn and telling Gus to turn down that racket he calls music. Seriously…it’s gonna be awesome. LOL…xoxo

    I realize I am a little late coming to this blog party or commenting on this post, but I just had to add…I just dropped the “sneaker” bomb yesterday. The worst part is, I didn’t even realize it made me old until I read your post. It’s all downhill from here.

    (Your story about the teenage boys made me cringe BTW. While teens may have talked that way “in my day”, it was done in private…not a check-out line).
