I am a child of the 80’s.
We are talking “The Karate Kid” with Ralph Macchio.
U2, MTV, New Wave, Top Gun, Denim Jackets, etc. All the stuff that’s popular again now…
I loved growing up in what is now called “GenerationX”.
But I’m also finding that it’s weird sometimes to be between the Baby Boomers and the Millennials. Two groups who could not be any more different. I have the cool decade to grow up in, but as a parent, I’m worried about what kind of world my kids will have.
I have other questions…at what point is Billy Idol going to seem as ancient as Buddy Holly and Elvis? I mean, at least my generation had color t.v. and cable. And we had amazing bands that my kids and I love now! I never would of imagined that my oldest son and I would both have a love for U.2.
It’s strange to try to conceptualize what kind of grandfather I would be. Sometimes in my head it’s like “Back to the Future II” where Marty goes forward.
