It's All Relative...

I recently added an old high school teacher to my list of friends on facebook.

He didn't really remember me but then again, I wouldn't have expected him too.... even though I'm sure there weren't too many girls with big bushy blonde hair who were called "Bushhead", even by some of the teachers.... I can't tell you the amount of times I was asked if there were possums hiding in my hair!!! It was all quite traumatic!

So anyhow, the first thing I noticed about this old teacher of mine was his date of birth. I was a little surprised to see he was only 16 years older than me! That would have made him ten years younger than I am NOW when he was teaching me!
So why is it that when I was a student, he seemed so old??? Was he really only 30 years old?? Really??

It's all too depressing...

Someone stop this damn age clock! I think it's out of whack, it's turning too fast!!

My Spanish Dr consults with me in English and sometimes Spanish if he can't find the right word.

however I am not sure he realised I can read and write in Spanish as well because at my last consult he wrote in large letters on my notes "Geriatric Pregnancy"

That was the first time I have felt really old!
