Watching the olympics, impressed with the athletes. So young & talented. Meanwhile, just walked into the wall, didn’t spill my wine. GOLD!


Ugh some of these athletes are so young and I'm just sitting here like I'm kinda double jointed? That's cool I guess?


Want to feel old? The youngest Olympian in Rio was born in 2002.


I would like to meet an olympian just to now really really truly feel completely worthless.


A 19 year old won a gold medal and I still can't make toast right


Me: "yaaaasss Mack Horton!" TV: "Mack was born in 1996..." Me: "Ok show off"

Me: wow seeing kids so young at the Olympics makes me feel bad about myself.. Mom: It should, loser. #Olympics2016 #USA #mom


I'm at that really awkward age where the Olympians are around the same age as me and it makes me feel lazy #Rio2016


Watching these Olympians my age in Rio while I'm sitting on the couch like


>commentator praising olympic athletes >"they are only 23 years old! so young!" yes. keep telling me 23 is young. h ahahaha HAHA :)


"That Olympic gymnast is 19, that's your age. Why aren't you in Rio" 🙃🙃🙃


Mack Horton is still a babe even though he makes me feel really old. #Rio2016
