Whilst walking with Suze yesterday morning we were discussing the term ‘Good Ol’ Days’ and what did we consider to be our own good ol’ days and choosing to NOT look at them through rose tinted glasses, but really looking at them …. Suze decided that her ‘good ol’ days’ were probably in her 40’s, which was twenty years ago now. She asked me what were mine or what did l consider my good ol’ days to be?
So we look at the term itself …. “Good old days is a cliché in popular culture used to reference a time considered by the speaker to be better than the current era. It is a form of nostalgia which can reflect homesickness or yearning for long-gone moments.”
Good Ol’ DaysA phrase; Used by old people, when these words are used in combination it is a signal to young people to get the hell out. Ahh yes the Good Ol’ Days. Did i ever tell you about the time we rode the train from st. louis to san diego? (this is where you leave)
So when were mine?
My best years were in fact the 80’s and the 90’s and although l had lots of trouble and strifes during the period of 1981 – 2001 and some of my disasters were huge, that period of time were by far the best. Of the two decades if push came to shove which would l say were better?
Hands down the 80’s and then the 90’s.
The music, self-discovery, films, sex and everything else that travels along with a young guy in his twenties to thirties … I have also found the last ten years alone to be challenging and eye opening and as great as the 90’s for my discovery and appreciating and understanding of friendship.
Anyway – now it’s your turn ..
When were YOUR Good Ol’ Days and WHY were they good?
Let me know your thoughts and answers below – cheers.
