My mom has often told me that as a small child I struck her as an “old soul.” I was more comfortable around adults than kids my own age and was happiest playing cards with my grandparents. After taking a 14 question quiz, it has now become FACT, yo: in terms of my lifestyle, I am a Baby Boomer.
Yeah, we have a landline and I don’t have any tattoos and I don’t have any video games, but really? A Baby Boomer? I thought I’d at least land in Generation X. I mean, I wore Doc Martens with flowered dresses, and my love for Reality Bites is well-documented. WTF? Also, what’s up with “Millenials” as a generation? I had heard of Generation Y (meaning, “following X” oh how fucking original) and even the Echo Generation (the backlash or echo of Gen X) but Millenials sounds like a candy.
And while I’m on an old person rant: according to their birth chart thingy, I should fall into Gen X, but I had always been told I was born just shy of the cutoff, ironic accessories or not. When did that get adjusted? WHO IS MAKING UP THESE RULES?
Given that the title of this post if from a song from my parents’ generation, yeah, I think this quiz was juuuust right.
I am five seconds away from turning the hose on the neighbor kids.
