2 Second Fix: How To Appear Young

A friend of mine recently called us both “elderkakers”–either a joke or a miss-hearing of the rude Yiddish “alte kaker.” There is nothing wrong with appearing old, acting old, or being old! But if you don’t want to seem like a crotchety disapproving alte kaker, I have one suggestion:
Do not bad mouth the young.
Don’t lump them together, don’t critique their cellphones or business dress or whatever annoys you. In fact, either praise them or say nothing.
It amazes me that baby boomers would act like their own grandparents with much the same effect. If you want to be part of the current world, don’t malign the generations who are inheriting quite a mess, and who are doing it with friendliness and even optimism.
