I'm so exhausted that I'll be brief for today's post, but check here tomorrow for a really wonderful story about something that happened to my dad this week.

I was in Target the other day and on the dorm-room-type aisles, there was a gaggle of adolescent girls giggling over dancing animated little goofy animal things that played snippets of songs when you pushed a button.

Now, I normally don't home in on a group of anyone in public, but they were giggly and silly, and I was looking at something nearby.

One of the girls pushed a button and a Spice Girls song came on. A girl--maybe 12 or 13 said "Gaw! Spice girls are so, like" *gasp* "middle aged!"

This cracked me up. I'm guessing the Spice girls are 30-ish? That's so, like, ancient!

But even with my ever increasing CRS I remember a time when I wondered if I would live to be 30. It did seem like old age to me. And now my baby boy is 43. Dayum, I am gettin' on up there.

I was talking about the 70s today in class and a soldier spoke up and said that his dad had told him about a TV show "back in the old days" that had some guy named "Archie"? I had to laugh.

tickersoid - you and me both!

nongirlfriend - you ARE geriatric, chicken! Here's an app for AARP membership, you old heifer!

ben heller- I'd be terrified to see her already-anorexic form stretched wall-to-wall. She's so "there's no there there." *yawn* Now I'll live in dread of the PR onslaught. Thanks for the warning.

Myron- It's amazing how it all happens, innit? I'll be 41 in a few days, and me, a mere child!

fathairybastard - *L* That's funny. In other words, these kids won't even understand the irony of the cultural references in Tarantino movies?

Wow, it must be over for us then. said...

My dad and I was driving through the Vanderbilt campus back in the late 60's and dad said "Watch this!" and honked his horn at a convertible we were approaching going in the same direction.

As we pulled along side a DUDE turned his head to look in the horn's dad almost died and I couldn't stop laughing. He wasn't used to long-haired boys yet.

mushy - you know, that actually makes a better story than your pop honking at a hot chick! Me likee!
