I guess you’re officially old when you start telling teenagers that you don’t understand their fashion choices. This happened to me recently when I chaperoned a group of high school students around the city of Memphis for the day and they took a detour into Urban Outfitters. When I looked around and saw them all swarming around the Champion hoodies, I scratched my head.
“You know this is exactly what my dorky suburban dad wore in the 90’s, right?”
But apparently “dorky 90’s suburban dad” is the style now. Who knew? (Probably you, you seem pretty cool).
