Confession #9

I just realized I'm an antique. My mom says if something is 25 years old, it's an antique.

ill be an antique in four years. I think if your atleast 80, you've become a family earloom. I don't think I spelled that word right.

I'm pretty sure things have to be at least 100 years old to be considered an antique. Think about it - if the cut-off were 25, my hand-me-down pink plastic Big Wheel (no longer have unfortunately) and my mother's Pez dispenser collection (she still has, they're in the china cabinet) would be considered antiques, and I don't think anyone is going to pay my mother heaps of money for her Kermit The Frog Pez dispenser, no matter how cute and nostalgia-inducing it is. For another 75 years, it's still just a piece of plastic. May he (and Miss Piggy) make it that long.

Yeah, you know those cars that have special license plates when they're antique? It's weird to think that an antique car could now be one from the early-80s. A DeLorean, for example. Or one of those Honda Accord hatchbacks.

I'll be an antique in January.

Don't know if it will make you feel any better, but your mom isn't entirely correct. You're only 1/4 of an antique.

antique \()an-tek\ noun (1530)
1 : a relic or object of ancient times
2 a : a work of art, piece of furniture, or decorative object made at an earlier period and according to various customs laws at least 100 years ago
b : a manufactured product (as an automobile) from an earlier period

Nope, there are other's who quote, antiques as being 25 years old. Sorry, folks!

But you are holding up fine for an antique.
