Too old to have fun?

Last week I got a new student at Shell Brasil. First classes are great because there isn’t much work involved. It’s just a basic conversation where you try to get to know your future student a bit better. Somewhere in the middle of the conversation he told me he’s keen on rock music. Specially heavy rock and he said his favourite bands are AC/DC, Kiss, Purple, Sabbath, you know, all the good stuff! In the middle of the list he did mention Maiden. And as you may have noticed, Maiden is kind of a magical word for me. So I said: “Maiden, huh? Great! Did you go to their gig 3 weeks ago?” Do you know what he said? He said: “Nah, I’m too old for that!”.

Hey, wait a minute, stop right there! Come on! Too old for what? Too old to have fun? Did I hear it right? Unfuckingbelievable!

You know, I’m sick and tired of these people who use age as an excuse for everything. Really am!
