I have officially crossed over the generation gap, and at 33, am officially old. This is how I know.
I saw 2 young pretty girls in the shopping mall, probably about 16 or 17. They both had long black hair, fair skin, and gothic clothes. Walking closer to them, I noticed that they both had piercings in their lower lips, that had 3 big, vicious-looking spikes poking out, and my first thought was, "Oh, their poor mother."
