If You Are In Your Twenties, You’re In Limbo [AUDIO]

I love my son.   Who doesn’t love theirs?  I’m very proud of him.  He’s doing very well in college.   But I worry for him and everyone else in their 20’s.  I get accused of being Mr. Negative on the show.  Not really.  I’m just trying to not “sugar coat” how bad things are.  Like the stinkin’ economy, and my kid and your kids’ future

 There was a recent article in the New York Times that caught my attention BIG TIME.  Here was the part that really got me:

They’re called Generation Limbo: highly educated 20-somethings, whose careers are stuck in neutral, coping with dead-end jobs and listless prospects.

They just wait and wait until things turn around.  but when it will happen?  And I also feel bad for us parents, who WANT our kids to be independent and not living at home, but they have no choice.

And all of this made me think of the original song “The Limbo Rock”, and how it needs to be updated!  Maybe someone out there can come up with a new dance step to go with it.  (Sorry, I have two left feet!).  But I did rewrite the lyrics, and I dedicate it to the “20 somethings” of the Capital Region and beyond (and us parents who are stuck with the bill!]

 Seriously, I feel everyone’s pain here.   No offense, but I’m hoping that he and we are not going to become part of this.  I’ll let you know in 2 years.  But feel free to let ME know if you’re in this situation!  We’re all in this together!  (break out the cans of tuna!)
