I don't have much problem being an old fart - I've had my wild and wooly youth, such as it was, but now I am all grown up with the emotional constitution of maybe an 17 year old. But time betrays everyone and there are times when I watch the kids in total befuddlement. I don't get them. I don't understand them, I don't see what drives them and there are times when I sincerely fear for them. On the internet there are times I come across them and they are talking about stuff I have no clue about.
I guess it's a thing where they eat Tide laundry bombs as some kind a YouTube stunt. I do know as a teen I woulda been all over that and most of my idiot friends would be too. As an old fart though, perspective and age come into play.
Some old dogs CAN learn new tricks.
