Lost Generation

I was talking to my sister, Kelly (right) and her best friend Melissa (left) today, and they shocked me. I was talking about different TV shows I used to/sometimes still watch and they looked back at me with blank faces.

Sure, they’re 16-years-old so blank faces are common. But honestly, I was shocked! How could they not have heard of some of these great hit shows that used to fill me with such joy, heartbreak, laughs and tears?!

I started singing some of the theme songs, hoping that would jog their memories, and NOTHING! They had no idea what I was talking about and even – gasp – laughed at me!  Well…I couldn’t take this lying down so I MADE them listen to the theme songs. Here are the top 5 theme songs of shows they’ve never seen.

What a sad moment when we realize how much our childhoods differ from those younger than us. *Sigh*
