How Old Is Too Old?

February 1, 2013 - Brian Collins
Following a recent snowboarding injury, I was told that I'm too old to be snowboarding.

I'm only twenty-five years old now.

That means I have spent a quarter of a century on this planet; can rent a car; am out of the coveted 18-24 age group that focus groups pine to win over; I've been able to drink in a bar legally for four years; have been able to vote, buy cigarettes, and buy lottery tickets for six years; have been able to go to rated R movies for seven years; and haven't been a terrible teen for seven years now.

While I'm not old, I'm also not young...but I feel that I possess a fairly athletic frame still for how little I do to keep myself in shape.

This led me to pose the question: "How old is too old to (insert action here)?"

There are a multitude of situations that I would absolutely love to apply this question to. So here we go.

•Go snowboarding •Have slumber parties •Go on Easter egg hunts •Play tag or hide and go seek •Watch cartoons on Sunday morning •Play fantasy football •Play video games •Prank call people •Have those annoying voicemail messages that sound like you're talking to the person but then the beep plays and the person realizes they've been duped •Go streaking at a professional baseball game •Have a snowball/water balloon fight •Go camping in your backyard •Call your parents mommy and daddy •Live with your parents •Go on a candy shopping spree •Wear skinny jeans •Get a tattoo

I could go on and on and on and on with this list, but for the sake of readership and time, I'll stop now.

If you have a response to any of these situations, post it, email it to me, call me, whatever. I'd love to know your thoughts.
