People Explain What's Lame When They're Young Yet Cool When They're Older

"What is lame when you're young, but cool when you're older?" –– Plenty, believe it or not. This was today's burning question fired off by Redditor FiredUpRedHeadRock, who reminded us that there's no shame in growing up. Life is bound to get a bit easier when you're feeling more self assured!

To those of you concerned about being "lame" now: There's hope.


"Sitting around the table..."

Sitting around the table talking with friends. As a kid I never understood how my parents and their friends could just drink coffee and talk. Now, I get it.

"Man, now that I'm an adult..."

Home Depot. Man, now that I'm an adult, every time I go in I see stuff I want to buy. It's like grown up version of Toys R Us.

"Museums."

Museums. I used to hate being forced to go to museums. Now whenever I visit a new place the first thing I look for are art and history museums.

"Staying in..."

Staying in on a weekend night. Relaxing at home and watching a movie is now my perfect Friday night.

"Going for walks..."

Going for walks in nature. I love being among trees. As a kid I just wanted to play Kirby Superstar.

"Having dinner..."

Having dinner and hanging with your parents. I'd give my right arm to have, not only a home cooked meal, but to just hang with my parents.

"Boring..."

Boring summer days when your parents were at work and you had nothing to do. I used to feel all bummed out on those days.

Now, I live for the days where the house is clean, errands are done, and no one wants to hang out.

"Having fun..."

Having fun, even embarrassing yourself to do so, in public. I remember being really young, like 11, and refusing to have normal kid fun because I thought it would look silly. Which looks the exact opposite. Who cares what you look like.. have some fun before you die.

"I'll even take..."

Slippers. Love kicking off my shoes and putting those soft squishy things on my feet when I get home. I'll even take the trash out in 'em, I don't care.

"Hanging out..."

Hanging with parents. Used to hate it as a kid but when i got older I realized there's limited time for it and you'll definitely regret the moments you didn't take when they're gone.
