"not some 50 year old fart who's saved up a $50,000 401K."
Guru, I'd appreciate it if you wouldn't categorize someone in her 50s as an "old fart."
funny thing about it is that some younger people act more like the definition of an "old fart" than some older people do.
especially people who are now between say 37 and 54 for some reason..... In fact I was just talking to my wife about how lucky we were to be born between 1958 and 1968... a sparkling 10 year period that created alot of people with some weird attitudes and such that hasn't been repeated since.
I really feel that people born around that time period have a freer mindset than people that came before or after in some senses.
We were the first generation to have a war bombared to us in living colour on television, television in the 1960s and early 1970s during our formative years was very heavily influenced by LSD 25 (Acid) and was very strange and weird. Our teachers in some cases were Hippies and BeatNicks and were trying out their wacky theories for education on us. All of these were put on us in our formative years before anyone could realize it was happening and "save us from it". I think we didn't need to be "saved from it" I think we benefitted from it.
I don't think of a person in their 50s as being an old fart because of this..... but I know alot of 20 somethings that are very very uptight..... lol to rediculas extremes...
How can a generation that grew up with Beatnicks and Hippies for Teachers even in grade school and with such weirdness on television as Green Acres, Gilligan's Island, The Beverly Hillbillies, Lost in Space, and The Monkees be uptight? or "old farts" unless our memory has been wiped clean of the weirdness of our "wonder years"
