I was very busy this morning talking to my BFFAEAEAEAE, Brittany, about how kids today are super spoiled.
We also discussed how waxing is a business expense, and we died from LOLs as how awesome our “jobs” have turned out.
Even though Brittany is a whole 1/2 a decade younger than me, she, too, grew up listening to Huey Lewis and the News’ Fore! on vinyl. We both also had the album version of Michael Jackson’s Thriller, complete with the fold-out white tiger.
You know, back in the days when young, impressionable girls thought Michael Jackson was cute and totally dateable.
I also admitted to learning I Am the Walrus off of a record player. We were pretty much the coolest 80s kids ever.
The first cassette tape I owned was Michael Jackson’s Off the Wall, and the first cassette tape I bought on my own from the record store at the mall was INXS Kick.
I owned the first CD player in our house—15th birthday present—and the first CD I owned was C+C Music Factory.
Kids today won’t have a first record, a first tape, or a first CD. Our kids already have their own disconnected iPhones full of music “borrowed” from our iTunes accounts.
HOW LAME IS THAT?
