You Might Feel Old [Video] [Audio]

Most of the time, I definitely do not feel my age, which is 52. This isn’t a bad thing. Sometimes when I’m busting on Scott Blaine, after he swears at me, he’ll ask me how old I am. I always reply with 18 as the magic age. Hey, I used to say 15, until a few years ago; I just figured that it was time bump it up a little. Now on the other end of the spectrum, Jeff Levack has Richie Phillips and I ready to set foot into the grave. Either way, it’s all in fun.

One thing I do notice, is that most of my friends that are in their 40s and older, generally say the same thing-We don’t feel our age, and actually feel younger than we are. I don’t think this is a bad thing. But, there are events in life that can make us feel different or old. The reason I said different is because those events don’t really make you feel old, like when your children are born or when you got your first job.

This is where the “feeling old” part comes in. Not to be morbid, but when a loved one dies, an illness or maybe a divorce. I got a call on Cryin’, Lovin’ or Leavin’ the other night which brought to mind one particular time in my life.

The woman that called in sent a song to her daughter who was turning 18-years-old. She said it made her feel old.

I thought about one thing. It’s something that’s a joyful time. That’s when your children graduate from high school. When I saw my daughter, Valerie, walk across the stage to get her high school diploma, it all of a sudden hit me-like a ton of bricks. I felt old. I was proud of her, but I still felt old. So I thought I would share the call and the song with you.

I’m not going to ask you anything about feeling old, but what are some things that made you feel like you’re still a kid?
