Signs I'm Getting Old - Vol. 4

If American Idol and ANTM have taught us anything this season, it's headbands worn on the forehead (like the hippies once favored) are back and huge with the kids.

Lord help me.

You know how I know we're in a completely different generation? When I see a 12-year old child walking down the street wearing her skinny jeans and huge sneakers and a winter coat that ends at her bellybutton, and I just wanna walk over to her and wipe that eyeliner off her face and say something like, "Does your mother know you dress like this?"

I can't take it, it's hideous. Leave that shit in the 70's. Do you remember those Dove shorts from the 70's? The ones even the men wore? And scared the bejesus out of us children that were at a height to know they weren't wearing anything under them? Nightmares man, traumatic nightmares....

It looks like he has those glowy bracelets around his head.

Welcome to old age, my name is WWW and I'll be your guide :)

If looking like that means you're young and hip, I would gladly ask you to get me some Metamucil and Matlock reruns.

Here's the thing about that though, I don't EVER remember wearing headbands OVER your hair up high on your forehead as being in. I remember headbands being the shiz, and me owning several, but they always went UNDER the bangs. This just looks retarded. Not that we didn't look retarded too, but less so.

bwaaah ha ha ha!! OMG... you hit the nail on the HEAD(band?)!

I have started noticing this lately, too... and I don't like it ONE BIT. They look absolutely ridiculous.

That one chick from Team Rainbow on Top Chef has that triple gold headband thingy that she kept wearing on her forehead, and the whole time I'm thinking, what purpose does it serve? I mean, in the kitchen, it makes sense to pull your hair BACK with a headband or something, but what good does it do on your freakin' forehead?!

Grrrr....

My litmus test for this:

1) Are you Rambo?

If no, then take that stupid-ass thing off. If yes, then carry on, brave soldier.

I laugh everytime this thing opens it's mouth.
