A friend just hired a new employee who started their job this week. I met him, seems like a nice fellow, but when I got my friend on the side I asked her if she hired him because she missed having a high schooler around since her son is now off to college. She got all embarrassed but explained that he is actually much older than he looks. Yeah, yeah, yeah…
It is times like this when I realize how old I am getting. There was a time when I was as young as this fellow and I felt like I ruled the world. Now a-days I meet people in their 30s and realize that they are young enough to be my children. It wasn’t all that long ago when I was dating women in their 30 who were older than me.
