As we start to age, there are certain times that come ringing back into your brain about how good the old days were.  Or at least how good we thought they were.  Sometimes we reminisce about a time, event, song or a favorite movie.  As a GenX'er, I have come to the realization that many of those events are probably a little "rose colored glasses" type events.  While they may have seemed great at the time, with age, some of those things are probably pretty outdated.  Things like high school initiations, stinky plastic shoes or even worse, parachute pants.
