Has anyone ever changed their screenname?
I've decided that I'm too old to be a punker anymore.
I was listening to an old CD and instead of rocking me to the core, it just gave me the jitters.
Forget about those tight jeans. I'll never give up faded denim, but when your flab sags out of those cute little bare patches and over the top of your fly, it's over, people. And there is no antithesis to gracefully growing grey like a shiny leather jacket festooned with chrome.
And all that booze I used to put away - I have no idea how I survived that (still luv my cocktails, but just not so much)! Forget about all of those other drugs - I'd have to buy a wheeled walker or a wheelchair before I'd try that again.
And how about those wild all-nighters where, all of the sudden, I realized that it's already getting light outside? Now I have all-night bouts of insomnia: "Fuck! It's getting light outside, I'm still dog tired, and pretty soon I'm gonna have to get up and take care of the kids!"
I'll never give up my abrasive boorishness. And I'll never grow tired of shocking the shit out of some little sunday school teacher with some forbidden remark. There will always be another raunchy T-shirt that I can still wear with pride. And I still follow my fav. punkers and check out any new stuff.
But I've known for some time that it's long past time to pass the torch.
So, I'm trying to think of a more fitting screenname ...
