Ditto for hip-hop. I still don't know what it is. We had jazz or contemporary or (groan) ISTD modern. Dance requirements satisfied...<P>Ditto also for the bit about Black Sabbath and Alice Cooper. May I also add Led Zep and Deep Purple?<P>You are no longer cool when...<P>You enjoy Cliff Richard and his music.<P>In a city like Rome you crave the fantastic churches and monuments and ignore the men. Or they ignore you, which is worse
<P>You opt for the documentaries over the action films on TV (cinema? What cinema? I see everything on video. No, not DVD, video).<P>You would like to download music free from the Internet, but don't know how.<P>You still use cassettes rather than CD's.<P>You start to agree with your parents
<P>You start to sound like your mother
<P>You opt for the flatter shoes even if you are out for the evening, leaving your gorgeous new Italian ridiculously high heel gold strappies (which you shouldn't have bought anyway as they look better on 20 year-olds...but you've GOT them!!!) in their box.<P>You have been known to wear your husbands shorts, T's and shirts (to his disgust).<P>Chipped nail polish no longer sends you paranoic. On the contrary, it is the norm.<P>You don't mind answering the door sans make-up...<P>You force your child to eat something at breakfast even though you never did.<P>You say to a friend's daughter (whom you are helping with English homework), "Wasn't the Royal Wedding lovely?", and she replies, "Actually I wasn't born then..."
<P>You refer to Bob Dylan and Blowin' in The Wind as a possible poetry subject for English study (for same girl) and she says, "Who's he?"
<P>I think I'll stop here.
