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

Well then
I remember when I was a young un' and my pop would say to me, he'd say:

"Good idea, if you keep making them faces the wind will change and you'll be stuck like that forever". This was back in the days when the wind could do that sort of thing, didn't have any of these fancy eye-phones or that boom boom banging music rubbish back then! Dont know how lucky they are them kids...

Back in my day the only music you could get was what you made yourself, in between shifts in't mill. 18 hours a day I used to work for a threpny bit and I was happy for that. Used to whistle, and that was enough for us. Honest days work for an honest days pay ahhhp. Never had none of this credit crunch neither back then, none of them bankers fleecing you, better off keeping yer money under the bed...

I ties me socks in a knot now n' keep em under the bed. Stops the elastic going you see, dont make elastic like they used too. Used to be that things were made to last, I remember buying a spade back in 43, needed to tend to the garden n' keep them pesky cats out the vegetables, still going strong! And... um...

Sorry i've completely forgotten what I was trying to say...

*EDIT* - Oh wait... Nah, gone again
