It’s a little weird that we make fun of each other for getting old.
Like. In what way is that a mockable trait?
We’re aware that we ALL live in the time dimension, right? And that the only meaningful way in which we CAN’T get old is if we die super quick. Are we making fun of each other for not dying? ‘Cause that’s some hardcore nonsense right there.
Anyway, if you’d rather just kinda enjoy the weird process of aging, look at these here tweets.
12. Back in the saddle again
I’m still eating that junk food though.
Road trips in your 20s: spontaneous, an excuse to eat junk food.
Road trips in your 30s: back pain.

11. Sir, THIS is a Wendy’s
It’s like we were lizards for the onlookers of the interstate.

10. On thin ice
Everything was about to go terribly wrong.
I had to explain this meme to someone and now I feel old. pic.twitter.com/e2fb6g7aFl

9. Card, please
It’s an embarrassing charade for me to show my ID now. Come on man, we both know I’m not a kid anymore.
Anytime I feel young enough to do something. I go into the gas station and read that sign that shows people born in 2000 can now buy beer

8. Retro future
Oh man, you’re not gonna believe this old shirt I found for sale in my closet.
It's kinda cool to get to an age where being into "retro stuff" just means being into your own stuff

7. Welcome to 40
Didn’t somebody make a whole movie about that?
Welcome to 40. Your dancing skills are limited to wriggling into and out of clothes that don’t fit you anymore.

6. Run run run
Um, that was never me at ANY point in my life though.
Me in my 20s:
Runs 5 miles, plays 3 hours of full court basketball, then goes out drinking
Gets tired sitting in traffic

5. Craft time
Smoke ’em if you got ’em.
And we allll had ’em.
I am the age where craft time at school was making ceramic ashtrays and everyone was like, what a nice idea for a present

4. Gas me up
While we’re on the subject, whoever came up with the term “gastropub” and thought it was hip needs to never name anything ever again.
Welcome to your 30’s. The things that used to bring you joy just give you gastrointestinal issues now

3. Kids these days
And then you realize the pop stars you idolized as a kid were basically just children themselves.
i don't like this phase in life where I google a celebrity and they are younger than me

2. Back to the past
AND WE STILL DON’T HAVE OUR FLYING CARS.
Watching “Back to the Future II” with 14yo, and he said “2015?! That’s not the future. That was 6 years ago!”
I just sat there, quietly, almost like I was at my own funeral, because I’d somehow outlived the future of my own childhood, and somehow I’m not already dead.

Aaaaand dad hit stop when he thought he was hitting record again.
