SURELY I CAN'T LOOK THAT OLD?

Thursday, December 19, 2013

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

MY NAME IS PAULINE, AND I WAS THE SITTING IN 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 30-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,

BALDING,

WRINKLED FACED,

FAT-BUTTED,

GRAY-HAIRED,

DECREPIT

SON-OF-A-GUN

ASKED,


"WHAT DID YOU TEACH?"

    LOL....what a great story....But I am sure you did not look like a teacher...

Been told I look much younger than I am, and I worry one day it will all just fall...

  I think because of the way you phrased it, you were in my class, also sounds to me that you were teaching the class. He might of thought you don't look older than me but just didn't express that. If you said, you were a classmate of mine that would of sounded different.

    i find that depending on how i wear my hair, i am sometimes mistaken for a teacher instead of a student.

    Oh no, did you get a new dentist. I find myself asking that same question, only I am saying, please I hope I don't look that old.

    Cute....sometimes when I am walking in the mall and I observe people I think they are older than me but then I wonder maybe I am not....it is hard to figure out sometimes.
