Do you have moments when you feel old?

Asked by SadieMartinPaul (8687 points ) December 23rd, 2012

There are those moments when one really needs to think, “Hey, I’m getting there up in years.”

I was at a carry-out restaurant, and the radio was playing Mott the Hoople’s “All the Young Dudes.” There were two teenagers working behind the counter, and one commented to the other that she really liked this NEW song. I told her that “All the Young Dudes” was written by David Bowie and was a mega-hit in 1972.

“All the Young Dudes” is timeless and classic, and I enjoyed sharing its story with two very young people who were hearing it for the first time. But, boy, did I feel middle-aged!!!
