    Young self/Old self

    Ok for some of you pups this might not apply.. sorry.

    If your younger self say 18 or so met your older self present day what would he/she say??

    I think mine would be " You cut your hair" first because I had such long long hair for soooo many years. You only have ONE child?? Where are the others? Why? You got divorced??!!! You have had some really fun cool jobs. I like your house. Hmmmmmm... Oh and are you still friends w/so and so.. she was nice or she was not.. bla bla

    Old Self: "I can't believe you haven't changed a bit."

    New Self: "Well it's only been five years"

    Old Self: "So? I was actually looking forward to all the neat things I would do in these next five years and this is all you got to show for it?"

    New Self: "Get a life."

    My old self would tell my young self not to wear that bikini top that has been known to fall off to that fraternity pool party.

    Also, smoke em while you got em. You'll quit in 7 years

    Old self-"Good god, you are still in Michigan, I thought we were moving somewhere warm all year round?"

    new self- "shut up and get out of my way kid"

    old self- "I see you settled on a hair cut you liked back in the early 80's"

    I still have to "fluff" my hair a little. I can't stand having it so flat and straight. (You can take the girl out of the 80's, but you can't take the 80's out of the girl!)

    Younger self: So, where's the BMW? And why is your hair long and all one color? (I had a color-of-the-week punk hairdo for the majority of my Junior year.)

    Older self: Avoid all guys with the name of Russell (ex-husband), Dane (ex-fiancee), and Brian (ex-mistake all around)!

    Crazmom, I am guessing you were probably in HS around the same time as me. I graduated in 84 then college in 88. I am a full on 80's girl.

    Young self to current self:

    "Eewh! a minvan? Oh, ok, you still have a truck, OK. Ooooh and a motorcycle. cool.

    Ok, let me look around. Cute kids, wife's cute. Nice house, this isn't too bad.

    You cut your mullet - good.

    Still didn't get your tattoo yet huh. Loser."


    Now, If I could go back and talk to my 18 yr old self.... The fun I would have...

    29 yr old self to 18 yr old self - Don't go to university until you know what it is you want to do, stay away from that guy named Darren and be nicer to everyone, even the people you don't like.
    If you go through a lot of hammers each month, I don't think it necessarily means you're a hard worker.
    It may just mean that you have a lot to learn about proper hammer maintenance.

    Oh I want to do what Finally Here said and one of the things among many which would be too long to post , would be to tell younger self, don't pick that hideous china. Listen to you Mother she knows this stuff. In a few years that trendy stuff will look so bad to you and you will be stuck with it!
