As I was getting ready for work, Eldest came into my room and announced, "I have gym today!"  He then started talking about what sort of game they have been playing in gym class (something involving Star Wars, dodgeball, Jedis, yadayadayada).

I wasn't sure if Eldest knew that my dad (his Poppa) used to be a P.E. teacher when I was young, so I started to tell him:

"Well, did you know that when I was a little girl..."

He interrupted me, sighing heavily.

"Yeah, I know.  There was no such thing as computers way back then, right?"

So NOT what I was going to say.  The little turd.

They really make you feel your age. But that was just too funny.

Just two nights ago, I said to Big A, "I'm confused. I thought vampires burned up if they were out in the sun."

To which she said, "Stereotype."

I had no idea. Plus she said it with disdain...oh, the crimes of growing old.

Get those vampires off my lawn.

Yeah, you know you are getting old when people who were famous in your time are unrecognizable by your kids. We get a lot of "who's that?" LOL

It's better than being a fossil, which is what my brother's younger work mates call him.

My husband and I were talking about how sad it was that Flo Rida re-did 'Right Round', and I said, "It's so lame that he changed the lyrics to'You spin me right round when you go down .' Why does it have to be so dirty, yo?"

And my husband pointed out, "Because, Anne - the kids these days wouldn't understand the line, 'you spin me right round like a record baby' WTF they know about records?"

And right about then, I felt older than dirt.
