Lists, Theory & Essay

better than the alternative

i usually listen to one of my mix cds or my ipod during my 15 minute drive home from work. earlier in the week though, i’d grown tired of listening to “amazing” and “somewhere i belong” on repeat for the 82th time, so i decided to do the unfathomable…listen to the early evening (i occasionally listen to steve harvey in the mornings) urban radio station (WAMO) for the first time in approximately five months.

now, since i don’t listen to the radio or watch videos (i download all of my new music from blackgirl online and other adult message boards. no, seriously, lol. i’m soooo not playing), i wasn’t expecting to be able to immediately recognize most of the songs. what jarred and saddened me was the fact that not only had i never heard any of these songs before…i never even heard of the artists. not. one.

***and i couldnt understand sh*t any of them were saying. i felt like a white person trying to watch “the wire” for the first time***

that 17 minute listen made me feel as if i had aged 17 years overnight, lol, and was one of the many constant and blatantly perceptible signs that im getting old(er).

so, as a service from the verysmartbrothas (and ms. lizzard burr), the champ has decided to give you…

…four unmistakable signs that you’re getting old(er)

1. doing absolutely nothing…and loving it

when you’re young, if you happen to spend a weekend night in the crib, you usually spend the whole time wondering and fantasizing to death about all of the marvelous and slutty things other people your age are doing at the time. by the time i turned 26, i’d mutter “i should have stayed my ass at home” at least once during at least 75 percent of my outings.

now, i make up excuses not to go out.

naw man, i’m good. sportcenter highlights are always better when rece davis is the anchor, and he’s scheduled to appear on tonights show. i can’t miss that sh*t”

2. waking up with random pains

a few saturdays ago as i lazily crawled out of bed, intent on possibly setting the guiness world record for the least-productive 12 hour stretch, my first step on my carpet forced me to let out one of the most bitch-ass chill-emitting screeches that a grown-ass man could muster. no, i didnt step on a dead hooker piece of glass or a nail or anything…it was just my big toe, in about as much excruciating pain as a big toe could muster. what made it even worse (read: “more funny”) was the fact that i had absolutely no idea why my big toe was hurting. none. as far as i could remember it wasnt hurting when i went to bed. plus, i hadn’t done any ass kicking recently, so i definitely hadn’t injured my toe on someones deserving hindparts.

the pain eventually went away (and by “eventually” i mean “three days later“) as mysteriously as it came, like a 2 inch long, dark brown skinned gypsy. thing is, as saddening as it is to wake up with unexplained toe pain, it still pales in comparison to…

3….injuring yourself during sex

i know that intense sex may produce a little bit of pain, soreness, and tenderness, but lets just say that father time is f*cking with you when you say to your lover “you know, i think i might need to get an MRI tomorrow. i think i tore my ACL again” after a particularly heated romp in the sack.

4. liberal, schmeberal

vsb.com aint gonna turn into lashawn barber’s corner anytime soon, but i will admit that i’ve gotten more and more conservative socially as i’ve gotten older. at this point, it actually makes me physically recoil when thinking about my years of misguided militantism and lazily lethargic liberalism.  lets put it this way: the 19 year old champ, after hearing about her politics, would have given amy holmes the riot act and the heave-ho from his sack while the 29 year old champ would give it to her while she had a karl rove halloween mask taped on her back

thats it for now. slightly good people of vsb, what else would you add?

    At the ripe age of 23, I cannot attest to this “I’m older than dirt” problem. But my bumminess in general has sped up my growing up process.

    I have also started finding excuses not to go out. I prefer a nite at home caking and watching a good flick. In fact, I’m sposed to be at a reggae concert with VEG right now but I couldn’t get myself to leave the house. I’s tah’d

    I know I’m getting older because I hate teenagers. They’re loud and ignorant and obnoxious. I avoid public transportation when they’re getting out of school. I just want to kill them!
    I try to forget about when I used to BE them. What a terror I must have been. Now that I’m older, I want to kick them in the neck.
    ESPECIALLY teenage girls. Nothing is more annoying than a gaggle of 13 year old girls in too tight clothing giggling and trying to look grown. Arghhh!

    • 8th Wonder

      OMG that is SO true…I can’t stand to see these ignant a$$ teenagers running around together, purposely being loud and obnoxious like it’s cute.

      Make me wanna take off my belt and shit.

        @8th Wonder, me too. I can’t stand Saturdays aka “drop your bad a*s, loud a*s, teen at the mall day”. I know I’m old when I go on rants on home training.

        I am as old as dirt because:

        -Ginger ale is probably my favorite carbonated beverage. Throw some cranberry juice up in there, what? That is a partay.
        -A good book and food makes my heart smile
        -I’m just a homebody in general
        -Cream of Wheat is one of life’s gifts
        -NPR and Democracy now define my mornings
        -I enjoy scrapbooking and love making homemade cards for people, don’t let me find out one of yall’s birthday, I have my own logo to put on the back and errythang

        -Come to think of it, except for the occasional wild out spree, I’m usually really chill and a homebody. Was I born old?

        I have a ton more lol, I will be back in the morning.

        • SouthernGirl

          @overit, if you were born old, i must’ve been born and put directly in the dirt…a cup of tea and a good book was fine with me since elementary school. my aunt commented on that one day about how i was always doing stuff like that.

          i blame my grandma. lol. i must have been the only kid in elementary school drinking tea with milk, eating broadway rolls from mckenzie’s (my NO folks know what’s up) and watching one of the following: perry mason, andy griffith, colombo or patty duke. but that was our thing. i’m glad i have those memories now though. good times…

            • Gem of the Ocean

              girrrrl i feel you on your assessment of GA–i feel the same!! but only when it’s from the can. if it’s from a fountain* i can’t really tell the difference in brand. all i am aware of is that light fizzle teasing my tastebuds and palate. and all is well in the world.

              *nothing beats fountain soda!! it’s the absolute best. i’d go to restaurants all day long and drink fountain ginger ale (back in the day it’d have been coca cola) if i could afford it (money and liver cells wise).

        lmao girrrrl me too!!! when i was in HS my mom used to call me and my close girl friend (who also hated teenagers) daria and jane. she never understood why we were so turned off by normal teenage things lol.

        don’t get me wrong, i enjoyed my younger years. but i wasn’t on any BS fa real fa real. i preferred going to schmoozy type parties with my parents and be told how mature i was for my age. looking back, i was really vain and always fishing for compliments. thank goodness i’m not like that any more!!

      i’d have to agree with the teenagers argument. hell i can do you one better.

      the other day i was talking to a woman who was 26 years old and i felt like she was just a total youngster.

      thats when i knew i got old.

      by the way, the teenagers in my former neighborhood liked to rob people. i liked them a lot less b/c of this reason.

    I know I’m getting older because I hate teenagers. They’re loud and ignorant and obnoxious. I avoid public transportation when they’re getting out of school. I just want to kill them!
    I try to forget about when I used to BE them. What a terror I must have been. Now that I’m older, I want to kick them in the neck.
    ESPECIALLY teenage girls. Nothing is more annoying than a gaggle of 13 year old girls in too tight clothing giggling and trying to look grown. Arghhh!

                @Dom, they need your zip code to prevent someone having a 20 dollar fillup sale on your credit card if you ever lose it..
                thats another symptom of getting old.. you know realize there is no such thing as a “victimless crime” I mean I like the hook up like anybody else but I dont want stolen goods, travelers checks, identity theft although a month ago I would have been hard pressed to walk away from that 20 dollar fill up……
