You develop a taste for canned stewed tomatoes.

Hi

I have no idea why.

OK fellow boomers/geezers…confess! (Doesn’t have to be food. Maybe music? Social activities?)

I don’t know about stewed tomatoes but canned Italian tomatoes (a good brand) are a staple. They go in pasta sauces and are just fine in chili or bean dishes.

Speaking of geezers, have you seen this one?

You don’t become cooler with age but you do care progressively less about being cool, which is the only true way to actually be cool. This is known as the geezer’s paradox.

It’s been a little over 60 years since the Beatles first record.

So that means, a college kid listening to the Beatles today is equivalent to me listening to Al Jolson when I was in college.

You know you're a geezer when you have to get up slowly first thing in the morning because, your back.

You know you're a geezer when you have to remind yourself not to eat too much for dinner or you won't be able to sleep.

You know you're a geezer when a straight six hours of sleep seems like a good night's sleep.

You know you're a geezer when you don't want to drive a sports car any more because getting into and out of something that low to the ground is too much trouble.

You know you're a geezer when you plan your trips to avoid the traffic.

You know you're a geezer when it's way too easy to come up with examples of how you know when you're a geezer.

I looked at a can of stewed tomatoes on the shelf just yesterday and thought “Don’t those look good!” Smiler

My Mom used to serve them as a side dish. I wonder is they still leave a metallic aftertaste.

When you never get down on the floor without a plan to get back up.

Yeah, and that sports car thing. I'm old enough to afford a Mercedes convertible but not limber enough to use it. Grrr.

I bought Red Gold and the inside of the can has some kind of non-BPA liner. They also put some basil or something in, so they're a little more interesting than my mother's canned stewed tomatoes....

I love the geezer's paradox...

You guys are all cracking me up! ROTFLMAO

I used canned tomatoes all the time. Never occurred to me anyone would eat them plain.

They have to be canned *stewed* tomatoes....there's actually a difference in flavor, probably because of the extra ingredients. Plus the way they are sliced (not diced, not crushed, not whole).

I’m strongly considering buying one of these.
