It's Friday night, you're helping out by doing laundry (I understand that's a sign in itself) while your wife is at a prayer service and you need to put on reading glasses to determine if you are folding you or your son's underwear.

It's a blast, but I usually end up with a few bruises. Sometimes I'll lay down and let 'em put an armbar or something on me. They LOVE that. Esp. if I tap.

It's tough to really make it fun without breaking something. I'm always, "Oof! Watch out for the TV!... Ugh!! Stay away from the coffee table, you'll fall on it! Gah!... ok short break... let's move away from the computer."

you just have to make it more fun.

Example. I'm going out for recess in about 5 minutes to play Dobershit Launch. The weather has wormed up so no more throwning the crap out with the trash. In the cold the garbage man doesn't notice but I imagine he'd gripe so It's time for a new game. Kinda like lacrosse but with a shovel and dog poo. That 100 #er leaves lots of stinky presents in the yard and only so much goes in the compost pile.

Target 1 is the house where nobody has lived for over a year and the tall grass grew up to the genital region and with the rain made for a helluva skeeter orgy. The real tough rock like turds are for the snooty bitch who never waves and her garden. Don't want to break no windows.

Every week for the past 6 it's been "next Monday"... this time I really think it could be the middle of next week, but I dunno. It'll suck if it's next weekend, because I need time to fill out brackets, damnit! :cuss:

I'll only have a couple day's notice, so it won't be until Wednesday that I know where I'll be next weekend.

I'm torn... the ACC tournament is 3 blocks from my freakin' hotel, but I'd also love to just hang out around the P&L and watch the B12 games. I think I'd rather be in Atlanta. :hmmm:

OK...

I'll play...

Cartoons when I was 8 were only on Saturdays which included looney tunes or tom and jerry.

I remember watching the Carol Burnett Show, Laugh In, Muppet Show, Zoom, Million Dollar Man, Greatest American Hero, Mork and Mindy, Happy Days, Laverne and Shirley, All in the Family, The Jeffersons, Card Sharks, ABC Afternoon Specials, Bionic Woman, Wonder Woman, Spiderman, The Hulk, Shazam, Lost in Space, Land of the lost, Rocky and Bull Winkle, Johnny Quest (favorite cartoon other than looney tunes).

Toys - GI Joe action figures (with kunk fu grip), Adventure People and Evil Kienvel motorcycle stuff, stretch armstrong.

Music - Led Zep, Black Sabbath, Kiss, ELO, Chicago, Bread, Loggins and Mesina, Split Enz, David Bowe, Queen, Boston, Supertramp, Billy Squire, ZZ Top, Rush, Flock of Seagulls, The Fixx, INXS, Ozzy, DIO, Iron Maiden, AC/DC, Judas Priest, Blonde, Missing Persons, Devo, Oingo Boingo, Huey Lewis & the News, Journey, B52's, Sex Pistols, The Cars (favorite band of all time), The Cure, Tears for Fears...the list goes on and on...

KcMizzou
03-06-2009, 09:49 PM
Looney Tunes was the best...

While grandpa read the paper (He'd give us kids the "funny pages"), grandma was making eggs, sausage, biscuits and gravy... then at say... 10am... all us kids would go "exploring" around the pond... down in the woods by the creek...

That's "old school" for me.

I'm kinda sad that my boys don't really have the chance to do that.

My youngest boy's finding his own way, though. There's a wooded area behind our place... he calls it "the jungle". Damned kid drug a huge chuck of quartz out of there, he was damned proud. (Indiana Jones shit) Took it to school for show and tell. To him, it was a treasure.

I'll deal with the occasional poison ivy, and/or nettles... to let him do that.

When you have clothes that are older than some of the people you work with.

I'm clinging to this. I have one shirt that is 36 years old and another that I've had for 33 years (I don't think it was new when I got it).

No more than 10% of the permanent employees of our department are younger than this; therefore, I am still young.

Nah, I just said "some of the people you work with". 10 percent is some. You are old

Btw. Where do you work where so few people are younger than 36? The cast of Cocoon 3??

I thought I was old the fist time I was driving home with a newly-purchased lawnmower in my car. That was ten years ago.
Yesterday, I was playing Drake's Fortune (a PS3 game) and was attempting to jump from a rock ledge to a log sticking out over a cliff. After five unsuccessful attempts,my 8 year old daughter said, "c'mon, dad, try harder"
I said, "You try it if you think it's so easy"

She got it in the first try.

Oh they did not have any idea why we all wanted to watch Snorkels. I think they would have chosen a documentary on rocks over the Snorkels.

I also noticed during the picking of video games, the adults all gravitated to the oldies like Marios 1-3. We got alot of eye rolling from 6yr - 10yr olds for that.

When an afternoon of chopping firewood leaves you barely able to crawl out of your bed to go to church the next morning, and you have to wear a back brace under your suit to keep you straight. Or when playing rec. basketball, you have to ice your knees,ankles, and put a heat pad on your back after you're done playing. When you use a bush hog to mow a 10 acre field and after about 2 hours of been thrashed around, your back all but locks up and you can barely get down off the tractor. When the weather changes or you go through a time change and it messes your body up for a week. I get migraines with the weather changes what a PITA. All of these things are things that happen to me consistently and I am younger than most on here, so just remember there are plenty of younger folks who have similar health issues as older people.

Old is having twin 6 year old grandaughters that live in Florida and you're very sad you only get to see them a couple times a year.

The only bright side is knowing their mother, your daughter, is always worried when I'm around them that I'll teach them 'bad' stuff.

When they were here while being potty trained I taught them to yell "Don't forget, flush the crapper" when they made a successful trip. They'd run into the bathroom and try just to make me laugh. I'm a kid genious (CP spelling).

Their mom and her MIL were not amused.
