Way back in my day
It doesn't take a genius to realize that we live in different times these days. I hate when my parents say it and I am probably not old enough to say it myself, but I'll say it anyway - back in my day, we did things a little different.
My day may have been just over 10 years ago, but things were still very different than today.
No, we didn't walk to school 10 miles in the driving snow uphill both ways. By the way, neither did your parents. But when I was in high school, jeans were tight, Poison was still popular and many people still considered mullets to be cool.
Still not convinced? Sure...
