For the love of God, today was an eye-opener.
Apparently, I'm old.
I handled it with grace & finesse.
Today tho., ugh, it bit me in the tushie.
Went to lunch w/ my dad, as I do every Wednesday.
We go to the same place.
This is hole in the wall diner by my work.
Our server today was Kyle whose bil owns the joint.
He's a cutie.
Blonde, blue eyed, nice smile.
My dad thought he was greek.
He's Irish. I can spot an Irish boy a mile away.
Talking w/ Kyle I flat out asked him how old he was...it was totally part of the convo.
Kyle said 22.
I did the math & then asked the dreaded question.
"What year were you born?"
Kyle responded with
I graduated high school in 88.
When I told young Kyle this he goes "WoW! I'd have never you were that old"
Thanks Kyle, that makes me feel much better.
Then I go to work where I'm reading my blogs.
Shh...it's allowed in my world.
I find out that the original Beverly Hills 90210 debuted 20 years ago.
You're kidding me right?
First, who remembers Scott?
Kid on the end, next to Andrea?
Poor kid, killed off in the 2nd season & never mentioned again.
This show was an icon of my youth.
I remember going to my friend's house who was holding a premiere party for the season opener of season 5 I think? I can't remember...I'm old.
Really, 90210, 20 years old?
This has to be wrong.
Then again, we were chatting the other day & reminiscing about old tv shows.
Like Starsky & Hutch, Eight is Enough & my personal fav:
Sigmund the Sea Monster.
You know, with Jodi from Family Affair.
Another total fav show & did you know Jodi was Mormon.
Oh that's right.
Holla for the Mormons!
So I feel officially old.
To help me feel older or younger, tell me what tv shows you remember from your youth.
I'd love to know!
