If you had a decade that you could re-live, which one would it be? I asked my Dad that question the other night and he responded by saying the ’60s.
“We had a blast,” he said.
Although I have only lived through 2 decades, I feel like the late ’50s would have been an awesome time to grow up in. I not only say this because I love the style of the late 1950’s/ early 1960’s, but I also feel like life was a little slower paced then. Kids played outside, money wasn’t so much of an issue and TV shows were actually scripted sitcoms, not “reality TV” (which I know are still scripted!). People actually dressed up when they went out in public. Going out to dinner and the movies was an event, not just a hang out for sketchy middle school kids.
Don’t get me wrong. I enjoyed growing up in the ’90s, and look at all the amazing things that have come out of the 2000s! But, it’d be nice to slow it down for a bit. It’d be nice to have America’s obesity rate below 10% again. It’d be nice to actually have a plot line in a TV show or movie instead of a bunch of blood and sex. It’d be nice to only pay $5 tops for a meal out.
I sound like an old person, don’t I? I’ve always been told that I’m very mature for my age…
Which decade would you choose?
