Top Ten

Hold My Walker For Me

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!

  1. One thing not on your list that I share with my grandma is calling everyone younger than me a 'kid.' My 25 year old brother? A kid. The guy at the cash register? A kid. Other than that, I'm with you. Hey – everyone gets older and more crotchety!

  2. Sounds A LOT like a list that I would post. The blasting music one is one of my big ones. I always hate that and usually give them a nice glare when were stoped at a light. I want to listen to my music and not yours. I also get annoyed at people who cant drive. That is a big one for me. Old people need to take another driving test when they get to a set age becuase most of them shouldnt be on the road. They always say how bad teenage driving is. Old poeple driving is just as bad. See I shouldnt have started.. Im done now. LOL.

  3. Jennifer!! Your list made me LOL. Your entire Top Ten List drives me crazy!BTW~~I love your Top Ten Tuesday List! I've got a Pet Peeve List going as well. SCome over and check it out!

  4. Are you my soul mate? Seriously, Jennifer. I couldn't have bonded with you on EACH and EVERY point in this post more if I tried. I am relating to you on everything from being a child of the 80's/90's to sharing to attribute with your grandmother.The girls and I are going to be in Vegas in October. We MUST connect. It would be a blast.-Francesca

  5. HEY YA! Thanks for the comment at my blog! You crack me up! Crotchety….I use that word and no one else I know ( other then my mom does and my gramma did when she was alive) does!!! LMAO! I'm a product of the 70's and 80's myself (40 this winter…HOW CAN IT BE!)and even though I really like hip hop and other stuff they play these days, again,I know EXACTLY what you mean. Sometimes I think to myself…."What crap!!!".I love LOTS of music…but crap is crap! LOL!(P.S. I was in your neck of the woods just last week! Stayed at Excalibur and had a ball. I was very mad though….The Elvis A Rama shop was CLOSED DOWN I heard!! I'm a big fan of his! I love Las Vegas!). I look forward to following your blog!
