PsychicIt’s nearing the end 2016:  That’s more than two years further removed from 1985 than Marty McFly was in 1955 when he went Back to the Future. The original Karate Kid is now older than Mr. Miyagi was in the movie. And Home Alone was released closer to the moon landing than to now (thanks, Buzzfeed)

Ew…Feeling a little old?  Yeah, me too.  But if you don’t want to seem old, you’ve GOT to watch what you say! Here are just a few examples of statements and questions that I have heard out of my very own mouth (and from friends and acquaintances) in the past few weeks…all of which I think immediately age you:

  1. I like your thongs (meaning flip flops)
  2. I have never worn a thong (meaning underwear)
  3. You sound like a broken record (self explanatory)
  4. I’d like to pay cash for that
  5. I’m on The Facebook (or The Twitter, or The Google)
  6. We have to do “cyber” better (thanks, Donald Trump)
  7. My flip phone is just fine (no, it isn’t.)
  8. I hate f&*king computers! (that’s not allowed)
  9. I forgot my shopping list
  10. I don’t know how to use most of my apps
  11. What is Venmo?  (Please)
