All right, so I stole that from Bon Jovi (Crush Island Records 2000) but it's certainly how I'm feeling right now.
A former classmate of mine just set up a group on Facebook in an attempt to begin the incredibly arduous task of organizing our class's 20 year reunion. Now, doesn't that make me sound old?! But I really don't feel like I graduated from high school almost twenty years ago.
I remember meeting a couple that summer and the man, upon finding out I had just graduated from high school, mentioned when he himself had graduated. To which I proclaimed--"Oh, that was the year I was born!" From the look on his face, that probably wasn't something I should have said out loud. (I'm still working on that--what gets said out loud and what is best that I keep to myself.) So now I find myself on the flip side of that situation--and even older than he was at the time! Thinking back on that now, it really doesn't make me feel old.
What did make me feel old was the day I received my college diploma--fourteen years after I started (I got a little distracted along the way). My sister pointed out that one of my classmates was a former student of hers--and not from her first year of teaching either. Yes, I felt a little ancient that day!
