Thread: Getting old sucks

    Getting old sucks

    I'm so sad to say that my husband and I just had this conversation about a movie we saw two nights ago. Gee whiz.

    We are about to watch a netflix movie and a preview of a movie with Dakota Fanning comes on:

    Bruce: She was in that movie the other night with Jane Fonda.

    Tricia: What movie?

    Bruce: Remember? Jane Fonda says to her, "How can you be so blind with eyes so big."

    Tricia: Jane Fonda? Oh, that wasn't Dakota Fanning, that was the girl from Two Broke Girls, you know, Cat somebody, it was on Newsroom the other night, right?

    Bruce: No it wasn't her. It wasn't Newsroom.

    Tricia: With Jane Fonda? That's the only thing we've seen recently with Jane Fonda, and the girl was Cat from Two Broke Girls.

    Bruce: Well maybe it wasn't Jane Fonda. Oh yeah, I remember, the girl was Amanda Seyfried with the big eyes. We watched it the other night.

    Tricia: Oh yeah, I remember. That wasn't Jane Fonda, that was Cameron Diaz.

    Bruce: No it wasn't Cameron Diaz.

    Tricia: Yes, it was. She was wearing a cowboy hat.

    Bruce: Yeah but it wasn't Cameron Diaz. Oh I remember, it was Charlize Theron.

    Tricia: That's it! Yes I remember.

    This is why I only watch old movies.

    Wasn't John Cameron Diaz some sort of newsman that sold Timex watches or something?

    My wife and I have similar conversations about actors on BBC shows (wasn't that guy on Midsomer murders? No, you're thinking of another actor, looks like him, was on Campion in the second season, i forgot the episode...)

    What's this have to do with getting old? My wife's been telling me what I did and didn't do/see/say for going on 40 years (I was in my thirties when we married), despite what I remember She's got five sisters and one wimpy brother — a real matriarchal family.


    No differences about TV/movies though, as she watches sports and I only watch a few natural sciences bits.

    The ad was introduced in the 1950's and revived in the 1990s.
    "Timex – Takes a Licking and keeps on Ticking" – a well-recognized campaign in advertising history.
    They used John Cameron Swayze as a spokesperson for live torture tests on television because he was the most credible newsman in the United States at that time.

    PS: We only had black and white TV in Wyoming in the 50s, beginning with the small round screen.
