I am a big fan of How I Met Your Mother ‘cause I love the slapstick humor of Neil Patrick Harris as Barney Stinson. Though it’s a comedy series, there are actually a few lessons they impart. But, most of the time, they just make me laugh out loud, especially when Barney comes up with some lame excuse or invents a new word or tradition. I also find it quite funny that he takes on challenges to prove his friends wrong about something. Like this one episode in Season 4 where Ted Mosby (the supposedly lead character here) said he keeps a list of things he’s too old for. Barney took it as a challenge to do everything on that list.
Ted’s list, by the way, was inspired by Lethal Weapon character Roger Murtaugh. He was known for his catch-phrase, “I’m too old for this sh*t” (Ted replaced the last word to “stuff” since he’s telling the story to his kids ^_^). Here’s the video:
So, right after watching that episode, I came up with my own list of things I’m too old for or what I shouldn’t be doing anymore now that I’m in my very early 30s. Again, this is MY list. I feel I’m too old to be doing those that I listed here, but I’m still all for living your life to the fullest. Still, I find some of the stuff here ridiculous for me to still be doing now.
I’ll keep this updated as I think of more. Share your list too, eh? ;)
I’m too old to wear this bonnet.
As much as I feel like I look cute wearing that bonnet (c’mon! LOL) I’ve had for like forever, I cannot wear it anywhere outside. Not just because it’s too effing hot out here, but because it doesn’t really suit my style now that I’m in my 30s. I usually wear it in my room when I don’t want to tie my hair and I don’t want it distracting me.
