    I think of most Boomers more as arrested teenagers. Not that you can't find that in any age cohort but there are just so many Boomers who fit that profile. The obvious reluctance to move forward in terms of maturity is distressing.

    I could not wait to become a card-carrying adult when I was a kid. I wanted to order cocktails, wear my little black dress, stay up all night playing cards, and go to moody jazz clubs. I wanted to buy guns and real estate! I wanted to be an investor. I wanted to make sneering yet knowledgeable comments in modern art galleries.

    The last thing I wanted to do was slop around in jeans and a teeshirt watching cartoons and eating Poptarts because I'd never learned to cook, amuse myself, or dress like an adult.

    Oban, two rocks. And I do like sneering young ladies in art galleries with short black dresses and stilleto heels. :D

    Gen-X is pretty messed up too. I was a Georgia boy in Seattle during the Grunge Era.

    I didn't get it.

    Well, if they're YOUNG ladies, they're not boomers.
