This is a question Turning into your parents

Unable to hold back the genetic tide, I find myself gardening in my carpet slippers, asking for a knife and fork in McDonalds and agreeing with the Daily Telegraph. I'm beyond help - what about you?

Thanks to b3th for the suggestion

Is it me?
Or is this week's question slowly running out of steam? The number of posts has dropped off markedly in the last couple of days.

Maybe the b3ta faithful have taken up more sedate hobbies, like gardening. Or perhaps they're all at B&Q snapping up bargain paint and offcuts of bamboo with which to stir it, standing in supermarket aisles tutting at the price of butter, or shaking their heads and sucking air through their teeth at the diparate youths gathered at the bus stop playing 'music' on their mobile phones?

Anyway, I'm not at all like my Dad, who at this point in time strongly resembles Saddam Hussain post-capture (it's something to do with a sponsored not getting your hair cut challenge, apparently). Apart from perhaps the taste in music and liking for beer and similar senses of humour - but we've had these similarities for a number of years now. And I would never be sucked into making a living trying to sell crap to people that can't afford to pay me for it when it arrives.

And I certainly hope that I don't end up like my Mum. If I do, I've only got another 6 years on this planet before they put me in a box, chuck soil on top of me and leave me to the worms. And I reckon I'm good for a few extra years yet.

I say, I don't get this one.
