Yesterday I was watering the plants out front when a car full of teenage girls passed by and honked me up.
I was thinking I was still "all that" until one hung out the window, waved and yelled, "Hi Grampa"

Yep.
#1 just graduated HS this week is now officially out of HS.
She has a soccer scholarship to a Christian college here, starting in the fall, but it is party time for the summer.
Her younger sister is taking her first trip to the range next week with Grampa.
So, I'm still "all that" in some ways now... ;)

I would have just smiled and waved as anything you might reply back probably just wouldn’t be appropriate…

 

”Hi girls. Thanks! Come by any time.” 
“Woohoo!”

”Hey Ladies…thanks for noticing.”

”Wow, you girls sure are cute. Ready for summer?”

 

All these comments with or without the right facial or body language would make you look like a dirty old man…

That's good for the ego,then. Kids just usually ask how old I am, I just tell'em "Twice as old as dirt".:rolleyes::lol::blush:

I'd tell them just look at my avatar! :D

My oldest grandson, (20) told me last Saturday, that he’s amazed that I’ll be talking to someone and just rolling along in the local vernacular and dialect and then suddenly when I am making my point, I’ll sound like a professor using words and structure that reveal my real level of education and knowledge.

 

Very gratifying!

 

The real ego booster is being past Social Security age and performing with my band on college campuses.  Even recently, during breaks or after the show, some cute little co-ed will come up and propositions me!!!  


It’s enough to scare hell out of ya’!!  It also makes you smile inside for a while!!

Age is relative: compared to a mountain I’m a baby, compared to a head of lettuce I should’ve been thrown away a long time ago.

I always get these young girls calling me "honey", I think alright man I'm still pretty cool!!! Then I figured out that a lot of young girls call ALL old guys "Honey":lol:

I'm young for this forum, but I have noticed EVERYONE, whether they are in the military or not, has begun addressing me as "sir."  I believe that's a function of the grey hair.

I don't have any grey hair.  I'm prematurely blonde.

I was taught that response MANY years ago when I was a fresh face at IBM.
Many of those in my office were ex-Navy.
I learned that reply, and a propensity for strong coffee, along with many other things from them.

Indeed...
I had to leave my last band when both our parents went to Cancer City and Dementiaville.
I haven't played a note for nearly 7 years..  far too long a dry spell.

What response? Sir?

 

I was taught that when I was learning how to talk.

In worn out jeans, scuffed up old brogans, and a T-shirt, there’s no looking like money! I ain’t purty, by some accounts anyway, so it must be the voice and maybe the smooth, debonair personality!! B) :lol:
