Make fun of my age, and I will beat you about the head and shoulders with my cane!

Last night I finally got around to unpacking some of my Coca-Cola collection and listing it on eBay. I’ve only listed a handful of items so far; I’ve still got much, much more to wade through.

A couple of things caught me by surprise:

1. I didn’t even remember owning most of the stuff I found last night. I mean, yeah, it’s been in storage for several years; but still, you’d think I’d at least remember it. Nope. Not a bit. Not even a flicker of recognition. Nothing. Nada.

2. In my exhaustive 20 seconds of research, I was shocked to discover that the Coca-Cola items I’d had since high school are now considered (gasp!) vintage. VINTAGE! Like…like…old.
Excusez-moi? OLD? I don’t THINK so. Why, I just graduated from high school. That was only…umm… …oh. Wait. Shit. That was fourteen years ago. Oh, good Lord, I’m practically ANCIENT.

    Oh you’ve got to be kidding me. Those Coca-Cola bottles are sooo MINE!

    (That is, if I can convince my hubby to spend the money on it.) 😉

  2. Come over here, shug, and give me a big old hug. Let’s grow old together.

    I hope you make a shizzload.

    See, ‘old’ to me is about 80…30-something seems ‘grown-up’ but ‘old’? Nah.
