The older I get the more old-fashioned I find myself becoming, especially when it comes to television and some of the things that you can get away with on there these days! Long, long gone are the days of Rob and Laura Petrie and Lucy and Desi Arnaz sleeping in separate beds, George Carlins's "Seven Words You Can't Say on TV" have long since gone the way of the dinosaurs, a discreet kiss on the cheek is now a full-on hot and steamy locking of the lips, and clothing ... holy smokes, it seems like we're lucky that most people are even wearing it these days!
It's not just on TV, though, it's all over the place. Anyone besides me remember when showing your underwear was flat-out taboo and frowned upon in society? Not anymore! Now it's fashionable to have your bra straps showing no matter what you're wearing and boxers are worn as shorts more than they're worn beneath pants - pants that a lot of time have the crotch hanging down to the wearer's ankles! Of course, I still find that infinitely preferable than being subjected to someone's thong strap! Used to be that picturing people in their underwear was a tactic employed to calm down nervous speechmakers but you can't really do that anymore as a lot of times nothing is left to the imagination.
I just don't get it ... but then again, the older I get the more things I just don't get. Soon, though, my memory will be totally shot and I won't remember what things used to be like and none of this will matter, right?!?
