Young or Old????
It's No. 7 on The New York Times best seller list and EVERYONE around H-town is chatting about it. Haven't you heard. . . How Not To Act Old, by Pamela Redmond Satran is a hilarious and insightful quick read describing the differences between the 20 something generation and those of us a tad older.
According to the author, "Not Acting Old is not the same as Acting Young. In fact, trying too hard to Act Young is one of the surest ways to Act Old." Ms. Satran further opines, "By Not Acting Old, I don’t mean that you go around showing off your abs, clubbing till dawn, and dating 22-year-olds. Yes, I’m talking to you, Bruce Willis." The point is to stay current, change a few things that might flag you as last century and to at least recognize behavior that screams over the hill -- even if you don't want to change it.
Behavioral tips include: Don't send e-mail -- the communication highway is now found on facebook and by texting. And please, don't count out exact change, just hand over the paper and keep the line moving. Don't ask for or give directions - that's what mapquest and GPS are for.
Glad to know the new rules?? You won't hear "you're welcome"
from us -- it's now "no problem".
