So! The other day I was driving around in my car, listening to Gwen Stefani and wearing my grey hoodie with my Nightmare Before Christmas gloves with the fingers cut off, and I had a thought...
I could have been doing the EXACT SAME thing 20 years ago.
So, being my usual self, I raided my hubby's ear about this conundrum. Am I immature? Is this normal?
When do you get to be...old?
Now, not 'my daughter is 11 and thinks I'm old' (which she doesn't..yet. thank God).
But old. You know what I'm talking about.
Now, I have Spark friends of a certain age, but they're online...Sparkin', and have interesting lives, so I don't think that really applies.
When I was growing up, I was listening to Nine Inch Nails, The Cure, Depeche Mode.
I'm still listening to Nine Inch Nails, The Cure, Depeche Mode. Of course that's peppered with other musical talents- Imagine Dragons, a smattering of Taylor Swift, KONGOS, Pink, etc...
But I've noticed I don't always dress...'cool'. I've never always dressed cool, but my dress of lately has seemed a little less racy than before. Mind you, I still rock the school girl gear ( I looove my husband. lol) and other various outfits, but as for my day-to-day dress....
maybe I'm lame and it has nothing to do with age?
This sh*t is BANANAS. B, A, N, A, N, A, S.
Seriously, is there a point where you just don't care? Dress however and go back to listening to what you loved in your teens, twenties? Dress in what's comfortable to you...now??
I'm not ready to bust out any mumuus , but I am very , very curious. I don't see 70 year old women dressed like Madonna. but I hear a lot of 'Free Bird' running around.
Is there something wrong with me- like I haven't acquired the 'age' gene yet? I am absolutely the cool teacher at school, but it's not because I dress the part. I can quote Sinatra- nobody knows THAT sh*t. I know who Mama Cass is on old Scooby episodes. I asked some kid the other day about his R2D2 lunchbox and he was like whaaa?
Is there a point, when you get old...feel old, and don't care about what anyone else is doing? Because maybe that's my problem- I'm 39 and I don't care now. Is that why I don't get it?
Or am I just immature and un-evolved??
The hubby says I'm over-thinking it. Maybe I am, but I really want to know. Is there a point where you say screw all coolness, and just do your own thing-cool or not? and how does that come about??
Thanks for your input!
