Oh, I’m bitter alright…

As promised, I’m back to my bitter self today.

Recently, I’ve been chatting with a few people about what one termed the “chaperone vibe” being felt when out at bars and clubs. In case you need clarification – that would be us as the chaperones to the much younger bar segment. The term-coiner would like to contend that it was a one-time thing and that I should not give in too quickly to what I considered, perhaps, our awakening to our new reality (i.e. that we’re old, or at the very least, aging). I promised I would, on his request, get a second opinion.

I got one yesterday afternoon while looking in the mirror.

Not only a second opinion, but also a third, fourth, fifth and even sixth. That’s right –  FIVE grey/white hairs sticking out of the top of my head. Do they have to defy the laws of gravity? Is that really necessary?

That should fix that problem. Do they let people with grey hair into bars and clubs? No more chaperoning for you. As a side note, remember thinking Ben 30 was old? Did I mention I have a kid?

Wow… Ben 30… I had completely forgotten about that, um, time?! Thanks for the reminder, I think. Doesn’t having kids make men younger? I thought that’s why my 40-50 yr old uncles keep having babies!
