Wordful Wednesday - Beach scene


Join Angie for Wordful Wednesday!

On Sunday the girls and I went down to the beach.  Before hitting the sand we stopped in at a couple of stores on the main street that I have been wanting to visit.

Since it was Sunday the beach bars were over flowing with  football fans.....young loud football fans.  It was kind of funny how they were every where.  They were scantly clad, overly excited and they were reeking of beer (and probably the left overs of a fun Saturday night).

As we passed by a group of good looking college aged kids my older daughter said, "Wow, everyone is so fit down here."


I laughed at her comment because it was true.  We were surrounded by a lot of hot looking 20 somethings.

I am 41 and I don't consider myself old, but walking down the street with my two young daughters and all of these tan wrinkle free 20 somethings I all of a sudden felt very old!

You would think that it was their young bodies that made me feel old.  Nope, it was the fact that I was probably the only one in the crowd that was annoyed that the self centered youngin's ignored the "No bike riding on the side walk" signs and freely darted between the crowd with their beach cruisers!

Just call me Grandma!!!

HA - love that!
I so do not feel old either - it is just a number!
But I have to tell you- coming here and you telling me you are going to the beach and I am freezing up here - not too nice!

I would have been annoyed too, grandma!

Jen said...

Jade said...

I would be ABSOLUTLY annoyed by these beach crusiers too, and you are not old IN THE LEAST. I love your beautiful blog by the way, and The Twilight Series IS THE BEST! I tried to tell all my friends 2 years ago...Last year, they got hooked! Read The Host, it takes a while to get into, but is really good!
...and thank you for your scrapbooking tips, I WILL GET THIS! :) Have a great day!

Oh... I am the same way...

I'm sensitive to noise now too...

I feel 150 yrs old when I get mad at music levels.

I find myself thinking the same way...would never be my mother (in some ways mind you) HA!!

Hot 20 somethings in Steelers clothes! Oh La La! The biker must have been a Ravens fan.

Come hang with me, Michelle, and you'll feel much younger. I have now gotten accustomed to the fact that when I take my 6-yr.-old to b-day parties, I am as old (or older!) than some of the grandmas. On the plus side, I am frequently one of the healthiest-looking in the group. Win some, lose some....

I'm not even out of my 20s yet and I feel really strange (and yes, old) walking around in the college town where I live. I'm not that far from the college life but I feel light years past it already. Is that strange?

Mandy said...

LOL...I am feeling old myself lately....all of the kids I used to babysit are graduating from college and starting families. It sucks.

angie said...

That would be me too. :)

jori-o said...

Haha! I'm so with you sister! I have come to realize how much of a "rule-follower" I am in my "old" age!!

RhondaLue said...

ha ha. Did you wave your cane at them and yell "get off my sidewalk!!" teehee

I feel old too when I don't like loud music, or the rap crap my kids want to listen to (uh-uh, ain't happenin') Also when I tell them to look at me when I'm talking to them. I'm my MOTHER!

Elaine A. said...

Yep, I could probably be called Grandma too then!

Did you take the picture, cause it's a really good one!

BoufMom9 said...

lisaschaos said...

Well I'm 41 and am a grandma but we live in a college town so I have these moments often of feeling old. :)

Rachael said...

Wifey Dessert said...

nikkicrumpet said...

LOL it's so true...we tend to focus on totally different things as we age. I catch myself thinking "damn kids" all the time...because suddenly everyone under the age of 30 is a KID!

CC said...

Ha! I'd feel old on both accounts. The wrinkles and the rule following. ;)

Tina said...

LOL!! I know exactly how you feel, I felt the same way when I went to Hollister the first time and felt that the music was too loud and the lighting was too low, LOL!!

ella said...

HAHAHA! yes, that is the true hallmark of age: getting irritated with the youth who see themselves avobe all the "rules". Too funny.
