Go on MTV.com.
I just went on there to read a Pretty Little Liars interview (I know, somehow THAT doesn’t make me feel old??) and started to scroll through their news feed, and I literally couldn’t find anything relevant to my life.
There were names of people and tv shows that I have never even heard of.
I have many times admitted to pretty much living under a rock, but still when the hell did I get so old?
The same thing happens to me when things get added on Netflix.
For instance, the other day I was so excited that they added Party of Five (I will always heart Griffin Holbrook/Jeremy London), and as soon as the show started, I remembered when it premiered. I was 14 when that show started. I was a freshman in high school.
Also, Gretchen Wieners was, like, 11 when the Party started. Whenever I do the Mean Girls math, I remember that film came out in 2004!
Sweet baby cheeses.
My 20th high school reunion is NEXT YEAR.
This just can’t be.
But it is.
I can’t sit with anyone. I can’t fit in.
And you want to know why?
Word, Darryl Philbin.
If you’re old(ish), when do you realize this fact? What pop culture triggers you into instantly aging yourself?
