[舊文] 如何知道自己年紀大了

這篇是去年生日時寫的,雖然 Guy Kawasaki 著意以幽默的筆調,敘述韶華遠去的「事實」,我在看那篇文章的時候,心裡的的滋味是很複雜的。

八月三十日,是麥金塔推手、著名作家 Guy Kawasaki 的 53歲(2008 年該加一歲了
)生日,他在個人部落格 How to Change the World (強烈推薦這個部落格,雖然他說 I don't read any blog)發表了 You know you’re old when:,有點年紀的人仔細看、慢慢看…
  • A cute blonde buys you a drink, and she’s your kids’ summer camp counselor.
  • You have to leave the place where she bought you the drink because the music is too loud for your tinnitus. (發現自己玩不起了)
  • You leave by jumping in your filthy minivan.
  • You stop on the way home to buy baby-bottle liners.
  • You cancel your babysitter at summer camp because you’re too tired to go out at 9:00 pm.
  • The only CDs that you buy are from Starbucks. (這是 Guy 的老婆說的,很含蓄的幽默喔)
這篇文章發表後的讀者反應更好笑,請看 The Best of "You know you’re old when: ,可以線上聽 Kawasaki 用 iPaq 錄的聲音檔…
