My Birthday is in February

Scene: a Subway restaurant. The POC household steps in to pick up some quick dinner before Mrs. Jeff does homework. As Jeff details what he wants on his chicken breast sandwich, "My Lovin'" by En Vogue begins playing overhead.

Jeff: Wow...I haven't heard this song in years.

Mrs. Jeff: 1987?

Jeff: This didn't come out in 1987. More like 1992.

Girl Behind Counter: Yeah...not my era.

Jeff: What? What year were you born?

Second Girl Behind Counter: 1992.

Original Girl Behind Counter: 1989.

Jeff: That's insane...

This is "That guy from Chicago's" sister......and he is old! (He just doesn't think so!)

I know how you felt! My students this year were all born in 1992! I was graduating from high school! (yes, I know, that makes me old!)

yeah.....just keep in mind that in 1992, we were 5 short years away from graduation.

Matt's turning 29 on Saturday.....

I don't like this "old" thing.

I have learned to be silent and marvel about such things away from those who might make me feel older than I want to feel.
