Ya I don't know why anyone would wear them anywhere other than the beach or pool. Other than that I just find it inappropriate.

Two more gems:
Billfold
Slacks

Also, for the record, I wear thongs...err flip flops almost exclusively 5 months out of the year.

I'm 52, my son is 20. He laughs at me for some of the terminoligy I use to describe things. One that comes to mind is I occasionally refer to the gas station as a filling station. Another that my wife and I use once in a while is "Tyme machine" instead of ATM. I think that is a regional thing because when ATMs first came out, Tyme was the company that operated most of them in the Milwaukee area.

Oh man, that's a good one- Tyme Machine. I remember a few years ago my wife informed a filling station "the Tyme machine is out of order." She didn't realize until later why she got such a puzzled look from the 17 yr old employee.

Man the Tyme Machine is a classic. I used to get hammered by my friends from MN in college for that one. It took me a long time to shake that term.

Dungarees, overalls and bibs are all the same. I have no idea which term is used nowadays but we used to call them farmer pants.

There needs to be a King Thames version of the bible.

I still use Tyme Machine and billfold...

Occasionally I will say wallet, but 9 times out of 10 it's billfold.

The TYME machine is such a classic it's actually got a Wikipedia entry:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/TYME

TYME is money!!!

The TYME Machine was strictly in Wisconsin - but it was all over the state. As far as I realized, all ATMs were TYME machines.

I'm 31 and it was always a TYME machine for me because there was one right by us and whenever my mom had to run errands before we were old enough to stay home alone she would always go there. Big block lowercase TYME letters so 6-8 year old me always thought it was just called a TYME machine and that's where you got money from.

It's a shame Najeh Davenport and Tim Couch were never teammates in Cleveland. It would have made for some confusing Sundays in local senior centers. Also given his notorious transgression, Davenport playing for the Browns would have been hilarious.

Did you post this in 2005 and it just showed up now?

"Dustin Pedroia doesn't have the strength or bat speed to hit major-league pitching consistently, and he has no power......He probably has a future as a backup infielder if he can stop rolling over to third base and shortstop." Keith Law, 2006

[laughing] Nah, just the conversation up thread about grandparents referring to a couch as a davenport caused me to reminisce about our old friend The Dump Truck.

I agree to all of this. I'm glad to know I'm not the only one. Also, they were thongs when I was a kid. You can add locker room along with beach/pool.

It's heartening to see that we have multiple 52-year-olds here at Brewerfan. Though I know 53 is looming close for at least a couple of us.

Yup, let's get you a new pair of thongs at Kmart. Those super cheap rubbery flip flops always make me think of Kmart.

Also, TYME machine for life. My mom used to stock two of Monroe's four TYME machines with cash in the early 80s. [smile]

Remember: the Brewers never panic like you do.

The Westminster dog show is sponsored by Purina. Which is funny because no dog owner in that show would ever feed their dog Purina dog food.

The SO and I have never done much for Valentine's Day. It's about halfway between our birthdays and I for one see no reason to rev up the gift giving in consecutive months (or for my birthday, an 11 day period).

However, SO scheduled his (routine) colonoscopy for today and I'm thinking geez, I don't think we have to double down this hard on our general disinterest in the quasi-holiday. [rolling eyes]

Pretty much the same for my wife and I (well, except neither of us scheduled any type of medical procedure for today). Valentines is also about half way in between our b-days, exchanging cards is about the extent of what we do. Had to laugh at the 11 day birthday thing as this is also a running joke for us. For several days before and after my birthday I will say "But it's my birthday" in response to any chore or topic that I may not be exactly thrilled about around the house.

Appleton's parking regulations have to change. Today the only parking spot available was in a spot that said 1 hour parking only. I only to be there for 15 minutes. Why the hell should I have to wait another 45 minutes before I can leave?
