    Default Looking Old

    Looking Old



    HAVE YOU EVER BEEN GUILTY OF LOOKING AT OTHERS YOUR OWN AGE AND THINKING, SURELY I CAN'T LOOK THAT OLD.


    MY NAME IS ALICE , AND I WAS SITTING IN THE WAITING ROOM FOR MY FIRST APPOINTMENT WITH A NEW DENTIST.


    I NOTICED HIS DDS DIPLOMA ON THE WALL, WHICH BORE HIS FULL NAME. SUDDENLY, I REMEMBERED A TALL, HANDSOME, DARK-HAIRED BOY WITH THE SAME NAME HAD BEEN IN MY HIGH SCHOOL CLASS SOME 40-ODD YEARS AGO.



    COULD HE BE THE SAME GUY THAT I HAD A SECRET CRUSH ON, WAY BACK THEN?



    UPON SEEING HIM, HOWEVER, I QUICKLY DISCARDED ANY SUCH THOUGHT.



    THIS BALDING, GRAY-HAIRED MAN WITH THE DEEPLY LINED FACE WAS WAY TOO OLD TO HAVE BEEN MY CLASSMATE.



    AFTER HE EXAMINED MY TEETH, I ASKED HIM IF HE HAD ATTENDED MORGAN PARK HIGH SCHOOL .



    "YES. YES, I DID. I'M A MUSTANG," HE GLEAMED WITH PRIDE.



    "WHEN DID YOU GRADUATE?" I ASKED.



    HE ANSWERED, "IN 1975. WHY DO YOU ASK?"



    "YOU WERE IN MY CLASS!", I EXCLAIMED.



    HE LOOKED AT ME CLOSELY.



    THEN, THAT UGLY,



    OLD,



    BALD,



    WRINKLED FACED,



    FAT-ASSED,



    GRAY-HAIRED,



    DECREPIT



    SON-OF-A-BITCH



    ASKED,




    "WHAT DID YOU TEACH???"

    True,I do tend to forget things like punch lines to jokes all the time. Maybe I should write it down, does that help you guys remember things? (j/k)

    No, writing things down does not help ---- we forget where we put it.
