I’m becoming crotchety.
On top of my transformation into my mother, I seem to have performed some weird Vulcan Mind Meld between myself and my grandma. And though I love my grandma, I don’t necessarily need to have the same outlook on life as she does.
Case in point: my husband and I were driving home from my dad’s house this evening, listening to the radio. I became irritated. “What kind of song is this? What in the world are they playing on the radio these days?” I said. He laughed and shrugged his shoulders. Is it just me, or do they let anyone write music these days?
I know, I know. How dare I get on my high horse! Look, I’m a product of the 80s and 90s; I sang along to Underground’s “Humpty Dance”. And then R. KELLY? Ppppfffttt! No difference now than back then. But I’m older now, which means I’m actually listening to what I’m listening too. That’s not crotchety, is it?
What’s in store for you in this Top Ten? Evidence of my downward shame spiral. Enjoy!
