Do you ever wake up some mornings and think..."Why do I look older than I feel?"

"Do you drive down the road, listening to your favorite music turned up loud and wonder....."Why are those teenagers looking at me funny?" While your belting out your favorite Ozzy, Beatles, ZZ Top or AC/DC songs?

Do you ever stand in the Juniors section of the store thinking..."I'd look good in that!" while the 16 year old salesgirl asks if your shopping for your daughter.

Do you ever talk to someone and say..."Well, back in the day..." or "When I was your age..." and inwardly cringe at the phrase?

When in the H**L did I go from a "Miss" to a "Ma'am?" or a "Young man" to a "Sir?" Nobody asked me, darn it!!!

Do you feel like you have the heart and mindset of someone much younger than you??? When do you notice it?

I notice it when I'm walking by the Juniors section, thinking..."That's cute.
Where's my credit card." Then I think, "Hmmmm, maybe it's not a good idea to have the word "JUICY" stamped on my behind." LOL

Whenever I fire up the cd player in my car, and sing along to Jack White.

Default Are you "Young at Heart?"

I also like alot of 60's, especially Bob Dylan, Jimi Hendrix, The Doors, Rolling Stones, etc. Weezer is also one of my favorite bands, and I like most of the 80's hairbands. Everyone in High School thought I was strange when I rolled into the parking lot blasting some Billy Squier, Led Zeppelin, ZZ Top, Styx, ACDC, The Who....

On Fridays, I would roll up and blast some gangsta rap though to put things on an even keel.

OK I would play Frank Sinatra's "Young at Heart" but then blast "Money for Nothing" by Dire Straits! And yes, I say, 'back in the day'...well I guess some of you kids do know what you missed if you play our Rock and Roll!
