Scary realization

I remember being a kid riding in the car with my father listening to the oldies station he liked. It was the late 70's, so I suppose we were listening to music from the 50's. Well, to be honest, I didn't really care for it. Actually, if you want to know the truth, I hated it. I thought it was incredibly dorky, and of course I would never do the same thing, I told myself.

Can you see where this is going? The other day, I was driving in my car, jamming to a song by General Public, and all of a sudden it hit me like a ton of bricks.

I'm doing the same thing. Oh s***, I am old!

Couple that with the nose hair discovery from last week, and I am kind of freaking out.

If I start growing huge tufts of hair on my back and the top of my chest, you have my permission to smack me. Oh, and you can help me wax.

If I start watching Fox News incessently, you can knock me off. Seriously.

I find myself talking to the interns at work about how when I started as an engineer, we didn't use computers and drew our stuff by hand.

Then I was talking to them about how the first modem I had was 2400 Baud(FYI that is about 600 times slower than a cable modem).

Then they started laughing at me... I guess I'm old.

LOL...I work at a university and am appalled every day at how much older I am than my students. I didn't even use a computer regularly until I went to graduate school in 1997--and I was almost 30 then! :)

A coworker and I were wondering a while ago "When did we cease to be the young, hip chicks in the office?" Sad thing is, it was a while ago, and we didn't even notice!! Now we're just the super-cool middle-aged moms who drive nicer cars than those young things. Being hot isn't everything. :)

My advice: Enjoy it, and keep the tweasers handy.
