Things You Thought Were Cool But Didn’t Have And Now Probably Could Buy But Shouldn’t

I used to love these vintage American style work shirts with a name like Tex or something on them but never had one. Could afford to drop a tenner on this but would probably look an absolute twat in it at 37 years old, somehow both greying and balding and not a 15 year old going to see a Fat Wreck band or a mechanic.

Should I buy this?

I also liked those bowling shirts but think the same principle applies.

What did you want but now probably shouldn’t have?

I’ve not bought it yet but it is tempting, isn’t it?

A guitar. I bought one last Christmas. I’m absolutely shit at it. I was rocking out the other night playing Nirvana or something and caught sight in the mirror of this dumpy, bald man with his tongue out, wearing a chunky cable knit jumper and I could just imagine the disapproving looks my teenage self would have given. Fuck that guy though, I’m having fun so I say go for it!

I like that the internet thinks you’ll want one, whereas I had to go out of my way to search.
So, what colour did you get?!

Reckon the whole point of your 30s and 40s is to buy stuff you wanted as a young person but couldn’t afford, so crack on everyone, let’s live those dreams

I think one would be a crushing disappointment now, given how far computers had advanced
