It’s 2065 and Shit Happens

Pretend it’s 2065 and you’re telling some random kids on the street that, “When I was your age, me and my bitches literally drank an entire keg of beer on our own. It was awesome, you guys.”

And one kid rolls his eyes and says, “No one says ‘you guys’ anymore. By Saturn’s rings, lady, you’re so old.”

And you’re like, “OMG, I’m totally NOT old.”

“Lady, no one says ‘OMG’ and ‘totally’ anymore.”

And you’re all like, “Shut up, random kid. You’re stupid.”

And the kid rolls his eyes for the umpteenth time and says, “That’s real smart, Tutankhamen.”

And then you look to the sides, sweat beading on your forehead, and you let out a painfully embarrassing, “Wazzuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuup?”

And then the kid just walks away.

Yes. The future is grim and dark.

    BWAHAHAHAHAHA. I actually can’t wait for the future when I can say something completely random like “dude that is so dope, you don’t even know, I can’t even.” and just watch their dumbfounded face.

  3. Ah, but if the really old lady in the future vaporizes the random kid on the spot for being so rude? It could happen…

    I’d set my phaser to stun and teach that punk a lesson. 😀

  5. And the kid goes home and says to his dad, “I just met Mom and she’s pissed again. She found the antique keg of beer.”

  6. That is exactly what happens to me when I quote my favorite movies, like pretty in pink, from my youth. I just get blank stares or some punk kid says I have never seen it. The future is now. Can I get a phaser?

    The future may be worth living for if kids really do say “By Saturn’s rings.” I could go for that.

    Guess no one will be saying, “Gag me with a spoon” in 2065. Oh wait…they’re not saying it now. *REALLY showing my age*

    Thanks for stopping by my place. I’ll be back – love the snark!
