The Good Ol’ Days ReduxJune 16th, 2010
When my parent’s generation talked about how things were when they were growing up, they’d say “in my day.”
When my grandparents referred to their own formative years, they’d say “in the old days.”
And, now, it’s our turn.
How do Baby Boomers refer to their own good ol’ days? The word that’s emerging is “back in the day.” Don’t ask me why, how, or what it means. Just observe, and you’ll see it’s getting used– it seems an adequate and innocuous way of putting it; I, myself, use it, and I think I recently read a quote from Tom Petty, and he used that phrase, too.
