I can sympathise with this but would modify it slightly to about 80-90% of what people under the age of 21 say. There is always the 10% that is interesting or entertaining.

I was listening to a group of teenage girls on the train at the weekend. This was the conversation.

Girl A: "I love jam."
Girl B: "I hate jam.".
Girl C: "I love jam and I love peanut butter and I love marmite."
Girl D: "Jam is rank."
Girls A and D:"Noooo."
Girl E: "Oh My God."
Girl B: "Why are we talking about jam?"
All the girls then giggled like mad for about 20 seconds.

In case you were wondering, this fits into the 10-20% that doesn't irritate me.

Another one I've not heard of bites the dust! I feel young again.

Not really, I still feel like a grumpy, boring middle-aged person. Who is still treated as a teenager in some ways, which is REALLY confusing, because if I was a teenager now I'd have grown up in a different time with different experiences and expectations and no internet. But hopefully that will soon end. 20 years ago really does feel like a long time ago and like yesterday at the same time. Getting older is weird.

That reminds me of the start of a Larkin poem:

I Have Started To Say by Philip Larkin

I have started to say
"A quarter of a century"
Or "thirty years back"
About my own life.

It makes me breathless
It's like falling and recovering
In huge gesturing loops
Through an empty sky.



(I have omitted the final verse because it is too gloomy.)

.. the last verse stops looking gloomy.

^^ I feel like a five year old inside, just with sore knees.

I didn't know knees could hurt so much. How did the song go? "Be kind to your knees, you will miss them when they are gone."

P.s. chiorgirl, if you don't know who Sir Andrew Dilnot is then you may have missed my point.

Every ache and pain makes you think you have arthritis, heart disease or a stroke on the very near horizon or I'm just a hypochondriac

Ah no I didn't. I get it now.
And I meant internet, not no internet.
Like the poem.
