On the bus home today, the 15 year old-ish boy next to me put away his fancy schmancy iTouch, and pulled out a proper old-school, first generation Nintendo Game Boy.
I was so impressed by his retro-coolness that I almost asked him what game he was playing. And it suddenly hit me that any such conversation would involve me using the words "when I was your age...", or, more precisely - and this is SO much more painful to admit - "about 20 years ago (when I was 9, and had one of those)".
I don't think I'm ready to feel this old. Please can I be 23 again?
