Out of the Blue

Today is Ash Wednesday, so hats off (literally) for all who are celebrating. This means I forgot yesterday was Shrove Tuesday. So I missed Mardi Gras, and more tragically, Pancake Tuesday, as I love pancakes. Well, I blew my chance to get plastic beads for flashing my goods, but at least I can still get some pancakes, so I'll have to content myself with that.

Nothing is worse than listening to 20-something Millennials talk about how horrible reaching age 30 is next to a person who is over 40 and has the experience. Would it kill them to ask someone who actually knows what the experience is like? And what it is like to reach age 40? Experience > Head knowledge. *rolls eyes*

I finally figured out what Millennials are. They're all the know-it-all teenagers who never grew up. Nobody bothered to put them in their place and tell them, "you don't know what you're talking about." Society collectively gave them stickers even when what they're saying isn't true. That contributed to an inflated sense of knowledge.

I think perhaps once they reach age 50 they will finally realize they knew nothing when they were young (or not; who knows). Quite possibly one of the worst generation of people.

I was 22 when my folks hit 40 and I thought that was one foot in the grave old at the time. When Elvis kicked off at 42 I thought he had led a long and happy life. Wisdom only comes with the benefit of hindsight and you need experience for that. It's like that great line form Indy ROTLA where Marion says, "You're not the man I knew ten years ago," and he replies "It's not the years, honey. It's the mileage."
Millennials or not, that will never change. It's that famous Wolfe quote, "The problem with youth is it's wasted on the young."
