Yes, at the mature (ahem!) age of 58, I still sing along with my music in the car. Today, as I was returning from Home Depot and I must admit I was really rocking out. As I was sitting at a stoplight, I looked over at the car next to me where 4 teenagers were watching me and howling with laughter (hey, it wasn't that funny). So, I decided to really give them a show, and I used my thumb as my microphone, really *belting it out*. Then, I turned and winked at them. Frankly, those teenagers stared at me in horror at that point. I'm certain they were thanking God that I wasn't their mother. But hey - they did stop laughing hysterically.
Sure. I'm not anyone like Mick Jagger, but I'm younger than he is too. I still love to sing (even though there are notes I can no longer hit). I'll sing at the drop of a hat, really. Why? Why would I do this? Because it makes me feel good and it makes me happy. I like to be happy, so I sing. Sue me.
But kids, let me warn you. I'm not alone out here. My entire generation (the rock & roll/hippie generation) is chock full of thumb-microphone-singing and air-guitar-playing old farts, so you'd better get accustomed to it... or at least tolerant of it, because I have a feeling you're going to see more and more of it as my generation ages.
Why, you ask? Because even though the human body ages, our human brains still think we can pull it off. Scary? Well, not so much as seeing some idiot kid texting while they are driving.
I'd much rather be singing in my car than driving around trying to text on my phone....
