    …or when you were 30 years old. ;)

    I’m sure I did, but I was three at the time.

    LOL what Internet?

    I muted my computer during the log-on process so I wouldn't have to hear that.

    I didn't really think that was going to amount to anything, but I still stocked up on bottled water, peanut butter, and dog food.

    My grandmother had a party line when I was a kid. I remember eavesdropping on a few conversations instead of hanging up to try again later like I was supposed to:p

    ...there's more seasons of a show after you stopped watching it than when you were a fan.

    When people not only don't ask whether you are under thirty, but joke about how it's been a while :(

    You watch Matrix 4 and realize Matrix 1 came out half your life time ago…

    Upon further reflection you remember that it took nearly 3 hours to download the first Matrix trailer while in your college internet lab.

    When companies use songs you heard in the late 90s/early 2000s as 'hold' music.

    1. When one door closes and another door opens, you are probably in prison.
    2. To me, "drink responsibly" means don't spill it.
    3. Age 60 might be the new 40, but 9:00 pm is the new midnight.
    4. It's the start of a brand new day, and I'm off like a herd of turtles.
    5. The older I get, the earlier it gets late.
    6. When I say, "The other day," I could be referring to any time between yesterday and 15 years ago.
    7. I remember being able to get up without making sound effects.
    8. I had my patience tested. I'm negative.
    9. Remember, if you lose a sock in the dryer, it comes back as a Tupperware lid that doesn't fit any of your containers.
    10. If you're sitting in public and a stranger takes the seat next to you, just stare straight ahead and say, "Did you bring the money?"
    11. When you ask me what I am doing today, and I say "nothing," it does not mean I am free. It means I am doing nothing.
    12. I finally got eight hours of sleep. It took me three days, but whatever.
    13. I run like the winded.
    14. I hate when a couple argues in public, and I missed the beginning and don't know whose side I'm on.
    15. When someone asks what I did over the weekend, I squint and ask, "Why, what did you hear?"
    16. When you do squats, are your knees supposed to sound like a goat chewing on an aluminum can stuffed with celery?
    17. I don't mean to interrupt people. I just randomly remember things and get really excited.
    18. When I ask for directions, please don't use words like "east."
    19. Don't bother walking a mile in my shoes. That would be boring. Spend 30 seconds in my head. That'll freak you right out.
    20. Sometimes, someone unexpected comes into your life out of nowhere, makes your heart race, and changes you forever. We call those people cops.
    21. My luck is like a bald guy who just won a comb.

    I feel sorry for streaming-era kids. They'll never know the rush of adrenalin that comes from running to the bathroom or fridge during a commercial break and your sibling yells, "IT'S ON!!!" as you hurdle the furniture to get back before you miss anything.

    Got my son the game, The Floor is Lava, for Christmas. Game box says it is appropriate for players age 5 - 105. When I was young I totally believed a 105yr old might be capable of playing a game if the box says so, now that I'm not so young. Well I can't imagine there's many 75+ folks out there that could do some of the challenge cards. One of them says you need to do squats, another is spin around three times, all things to disorient you so you might not get to your color tile faster than other players on the next turn. Is this game really suggesting I try to disorient a 100+ year old human?
