A little push over the edge...

Got this in an email awhile back... seems to fit today...

Just in case you weren't feeling too old today, this will certainly change things.

The people who are starting college this fall across the nation were born in 1987.

They are too young to remember the space shuttle blowing up.

Their lifetime has always included AIDS.

The CD was introduced the year they were born.

They have always had an answering machine.

They have always had cable.

Jay Leno has always been on the Tonight Show.

Popcorn has always been cooked in the microwave.

They never took a swim and thought about Jaws!

They don't know who Mork was or where he was from.

They never heard: "Where's the Beef?", "I'd walk a mile for a Camel", or "de plane
Boss, de plane."

McDonald's never came in styrofoam containers.

They don't have a clue how to use a typewriter.

Do you feel old yet? (Sorry)

Pass this on to the other old fogies on your list.

O.K. Marianne, was that really necessary?!!
Geez-I knew I was getting old, but that was a bit depressing!

[this is me, groaning]

That sure puts things into perspective, doesn't it? And it's not a very comfy perspective. 1987. I'd been married 3 years. *sigh*

Very funny, Marianne. Thanks for making sure my perspective was in line. LOL

Well, ok, now I feel old especially since my adult daughter could read these things and not know what any of it was about!

take care,
