Shirt of the day
How awesome is this t-shirt?
When I was Your Age, Pluto Was a Planet.
I’m not sure what’s funnier, the reference to the happy era when there were nine planets or that something finally exists that we can say “When I was your age.”
Wait. Is that the only thing? Surely there’s more I could say to someonelike, say, Trey. Like…. When I was Your Age,
…we made mix tapes on actual tapes.
…phones used to ring with an actual bell.
…there was a such thing as a “busy signal”.
…we had to write invitations because there was no Evite. or Email. or Internet.
…an expensive car cost $20,000.
…microwave ovens were like magic.
…celebs waited til they were 60 to go insane and crazy and need rehab.
…people knew you were friends because you went to lunch, not because you added them to your Facebook or MySpace.
…when you listened to your messages, you had to delete the old ones or you ran out of tape on the machine. And they all said “Please leave a message” like they were under water.
…the idea of every house having a wireless access point to the house broadband connection was futuristic dreaming.
…kitchen appliances only came in black, white or avocado green.
…wood wall paneling was not just for mountain cabins. Neither was that gold veined mirrored glass tile.
I’m sure there’ll be more. Feel free to add some.
