Ride into the Danger Zone

Scene: Hollywood Video*

"Danger Zone" by Kenny Loggins starts playing. Immediately, without thinking, I start to sing and the following goes through my head:

- "This is Ghost Rider requesting a flyby."
- "Son, your ego is writing checks your body can't cash."
- "Hey, Goose, you big stud! Take me to bed or lose me forever!"
- "You can be my wingman any time."

Nearby high school girl to her 2 friends (1 boy, 1 girl): "This song reminds me of that one old movie."
Her friends: ...
HSG: "You know the one with what's-his-face? Tom Cruise? And he's like flying."
Her friends: ...
HSG: "Aw come on..."
Boy HS Friend: "Top Gun?"
HSG: "Top Gun!"
Girl HS Friend: "What?"

My hip immediately breaks because I am so old.

*Horribly embarassing sidenote: I was there trying to find this movie.

LMAO. I was in a meeting the other day and my boss said "Frankly Scarlet" and I responded with "I don't give a damn." Over half the room didn't get it and they are not that much younger than me.

Are we at that age where we start saying "kids these days..." because I am not ready.

this reminds me of going to see drag me to hell, and when the preview for bruno came on the scene where he adopted that baby and the lady is like "whats his name" and he said "I gave him a traditional african american name...OJ"

some young kids laughed..."ha ha ha, they named him orange juice"

um.....yah, whateves.

I asked my aunt the other day if there was some buffer period between being a teenage girl, and HATING teenage girls, and she replied no - it was an overnight change.

I think she's right.

Fucking kids.

Enjoy the next couple of decades of superiority. The next phase is when YOU can't remember any of it, either. And you're all "it was that movie with that really famous guy and he flew with the guy named Gooch or something, who was that guy from that one TV show about hospitals or cops or something that used to have that pretty guy in it but then it just went on and on for years after it wasn't good anymore, and he was married (no, not in real life! In the movie!) to that little cute girl who played in that movie with the orgasm with the little guy from the Oscars." And then the song is over and you can't remember what movie you came to the video store to get.

How can you be 13 and 73 all at the same time?

I like how in the description of the movie, it says, "a young Princess (later known as Rosie)"

Why is that important? What was she known as before? C'mon, don't make me rent this.
