Kids Answer Hilarious Question, ‘How Will You Know You Are Officially Old?’
My friend sent me a video the other day, and if it hadn't been so hilarious, I would have been offended. A 7th-grade teacher who goes by @7thgradechronicles posted a Tiktok of his students' answers to the question 'How will you know you're officially old?' I totally do some of the things on their list!
I decided to ask my son, Rollins, if he had any observations about aging or what people start doing when they get old. Some of his answers were:
1. When you grow a beard or mustache.
Rollins was totally teasing Michael on this one. Don't tell him I told you this, but one time my sweet, handsome husband was given a senior discount! He's only 44, but he's a silver fox! I'm sure I have nothing to do with that...
2. When you eat a lot of Jello.
This one made me laugh so hard. I have no idea where he came up with it, but it's totally true!
3. When you need help figuring out electronics.
As an elder millennial, I remember life before the internet and technology boom. So, I feel like I am pretty good at learning how new gadgets work. (We'll just forget about last week when I had water spraying all over the WBKR kitchen trying to operate the coffee maker.)
Take a look at these other hilarious answers. A lot of them hit a little too close to home!
