Writer's Post: Out With The Old & In With The New

I love Back to the Future movies. Remember when Doc Brown visited thirty years into the future - 2015 - three years from now? He got a total blood and cell replacement and looked just like the Doc Brown of 1985. I'm still searching for that transplant clinic, along with those hover boards, so I can be out with the old and in with the new.

Back to the Future II
Instead, I look thirty years older than I did in 1982... and so does Christopher Lloyd. So if we can't throw out our tired bodies and get new ones, what are we supposed to do? Yeah, I know diet and exercise. I could grow flowers with that broken promise.

Sometimes old is special. After all, I was sorry to see my old dog die, even though I am now in love with an energetic young one. I have my favorite old coffee mugs, and I like old jeans rather than buying new ones made to look old. Why must we always say, "Out with the old and in with the new" come New Year's? Can't we just cuddle up in our old pjs with our old dogs on our saggy laps?

Besides, who says new is better? I have old kids and I'd keep them over your crying infants any day of the week! So out with the old and in with the new– :p. Unless you can find me Doc Brown's blood and cell transfer clinic, I'm not interested.

Back to the Future--I have a retro son--he loves those movies. I always thought they were good--but not great. Go figure!! Anyway--it is a selective thing, isn't it? Out with the old and In with the New can be a good thing...just depends on which side of the coin you are looking :) Cheers, Jenn.

I'd take a new body, too, if I could keep the old brain. I guess there's still time to invent that cell transfer clinic!

Hover board, I want my hover board! Even if I have to wait for three more years.

This was a fantastic post.. made me smile. I hadn't realized that the future was only three years from now! I am thinking they have all those things in some top secret lab and are under contract to Universal to not reveal them until 2015.

Until then, guess I am keeping my old blood cells!

The older I get,the more I want to cling to the old and familiar, and to happy memories too!
But Happy New Year and hope 2012 is a good one for you.

For me, there are still some old things that I want to get rid of, but a few that I will always keep. As for new, my husband says if I never try them, how will I know if I like them or not.

Me neither, my old friend :) - That would be old as in long time. Being that I will have you beat by a month on the old age thing, I will never be calling you old.
