What up my homie?

Yeah, I think this is what those dang wippersnappers kids are calling each other these days. “Home-eeee”

I used to be able to completely relate to kids like these. Lately, I’ve been feeling like the world (how I’ve known it for the past 10 years) is passing me up. I’m not worried about it, nor am I sad about it. I’m just more aware and conscience about my place in life. I feel the transition into the next stage of my life happening and I’m okay with that. I could not be more blessed and thankful for my place in this world and for my wonderful family.

I don’t know if this post makes any sense but has anyone else felt this way before? Whether starting a career and needing to stop to raise a family? Giving up a hobby you loved? etc?

I was on Facebook and saw a status one of my friends had placed and it completely summed up how out of touch I have been feeling lately. It was, “Michael just popped, dropped, and locked it. Now he’s locked out and can’t get back in.”

If nothing else, I’ve always enjoyed this picture. And by diggity, I hope you do too dog.



  1. I’m past that point; to the point where one begins the process of becoming a crumudgeon. 😉 I now view people in their 30’s as “kids” these days.

    Youth language keeps ever changing. Changing from when I was a kid, walking to school, uphill, both ways, in a raging storm, for miles.

  2. Lucky for me I am all up in my kids’ bidness and I make a point to know what they are talking about.

    But I have this kind of awarness that my youth…has left the building.
