Boomer Humor

I am not sure when it dawned on me that I was a senior citizen. Perhaps, when I got my first senior discount and it didn’t annoy me. Or maybe it was when I started seeing my stylist more often than my primary care physician. Who knows and honestly who cares. As a college coach, I am acutely aware that by the time I learn the latest technology it is already obsolete. A perfect example is the first time I drove one of the college’s new vans and couldn’t figure out how to turn off the radio. No, I’m not senile- I turned off the thing and removed the key. The music played on. I sat in the van so long I nearly missed the start of the game. When I finally gave up and got out of the van the radio turned off. Who knew! I was driving an eight year old Honda. Technology like my gray hair just keeps on advancing.

As a writer I’ve learned more about social media than I ever hoped too. It is a never ending means of reaching out to total strangers, friends, family and the world in general. I used to lament and still do the demise of letter writing. Snail mail no longer brings well thought out well-crafted messages from friends and family. All this has been replaced by emoticons, tweeter shorthand, and lol way to much internet slang to mention. It all leaves me smh.
