Know Your Blogs: Parents, Being Awesome
Age makes people lame. No matter how strange and un-hip your parents are now, as they watch reruns of Monk and go to bed by 8:30, there was a time, long ago, when they were awesome. And now there’s a blog that celebrates that fact.
[NOTE: This has been making its way around all of the news aggregators and various link farms over the past few months, so all apologies if you’ve already happened upon this incredible site.]
Here’s the site’s synopsis:
Before the fanny packs and Andrea Bocelli concerts, your parents (and grandparents) were once free-wheeling, fashion-forward, and super awesome.
But the real selling point of why this site works is the incredible photos contained within. Here are two of my favorites:
So go check it out, and remember a time when your parents weren’t 50 pounds overweight and getting angry at the TV for not recording the shows they told them to. Back when they were out there, just stone-cold loving and living life, just like you’re living now. And then make the oath to never fall into the trap that they fell in. And then wake up one day, thirty years down the road, and realize how you also failed to not fall into that trap.
Thus goes the circle of life. Now there’s the scariest thing you’ll read this Halloween season.
