Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

Fri Nov 16, 2012, 07:23 PM

Things I haven't done (and likely won't ever): 1. Eaten a Twinkie.

Now...BROWNIES are a whole 'nuther story. You put a brownie in front of me and it will magically disappear.
You won't even see it leave the plate. Especially if it has pecans in it.

2. Had a facebook account. OMG! i ws UNfriended by mitzy. hw cd she DO that? shes a btch.

3. Used caller ID.
a. It costs money, every month, that I don't need to spend in order to have a nice life.
b. Every call is a surprise. I LOVE surprises.

Downside: every asshole in the world ASSUMES that I know who's calling. Hell, EVERYONE has caller ID, right? So no longer do I hear "Hi, this is XXXX, may I speak to ZZZZZ?" Common telephone courtesy is DEAD.

4. Had a 'smartphone'. My dumbphone is complicated enough. Miz t. is the only one here who knows how to check voicemails.

5. Been to a rock concert. Or a concert of any kind where you're not sitting down. I don't like standing crowds larger that 10 or so. And that should be a cocktail party.
Do people do these any more? I do, but it's a dying social event. More's the pity.

6. Skateboarded. That's all I need to say about that.

Did I mention I'm a geezer?
Oh. You already knew that?

1. Your not missing much regarding...

Twinkies, imho. But their Ring Dings are pretty good in a pinch.

Facebook. I have one and have never accepted a friend tho many have requested. I only got one so that I could keep up with my grown kids facebook pages to hear about my grandkids.

User ID. That I would not like to be without.

Smartphone. I agree my dumbphone is complicated enough too!

Rock Concert. Went to one many moons ago. Saw Hall & Oats. They were good but I hated the crowd and I was pretty young at the time.

Skateboard. They didn't have those when I was young but I did ride my scooter.

I'm a geezer too. I'm sure that is obvious.

4. Five

out of six for me.

BTW...how old does someone have to be in order to be considered a "Senior" here? Is there a minimum age? I just turned 60.

Anyway, I've done all those things (and continue to) except for skateboarding. Well, that's not entirely true. I tried it once when I was about 13 or so. Didn't take long to realize that I was not cut out for that sort of thing.
