I was driving through town the other day and saw a billboard for a local radio station. This station has been around since I was a teenager. Back then they played hard rock music.
Now they play “Classic Rock.”
It occured to me that they are playing the exact same music, but because it is 25…(cough-cough)something years later, it is now called, Classic Rock.
Same music, but now it’s “Classic.”
That got me thinking…
Wendy’s has a Classic cheeseburger…same burger…years later…now it’s a Classic.
What about the old Mustangs and muscle cars of our day?? Same cars as before…now their “Classics.”
That old pair of Doctor Scholl’s sandals in the back of the closet…now “Classics.”
Can we do this…
Wednesday night’s lasagna is Thursday’s “Classic” lasagna!
So I’ve concluded that the wrinkles and grey hairs don’t make me old, they make me a “Classic.”
So I went to my “yearly” (actually year-and-a-halfly) check up this week. My doctor is an old friend (girl-friend) and there’s nothing like catching up on what the kids are doing while your feet pointed at the ceiling.
But this is not as bad as when I am answering all the nurses questions and I tell her the ages of my children…20, 18, 16 and 3. “Wow” she states, “kind of like having a grandchild huh?!” (Clenched teeth *grin*…eyes squinting)…”yes, kind of like that.”
Also…am I the only one that stresses about how fast to dis-robe when the nurse leaves the room? I wish there was like a little switch I could turn on that worked a light in the hall so that it would go from red to green when I was ready. It’s really silly because they are about to come in and see the whole show anyways, but I am traumatized by the thought of them coming in WHILE I’m in the process of taking my clothes off and before the little gown is on.
So now I put the gown over my head while fully clothed and then take everything off as fast as possible while that is over my head- by the way, you have to plan ahead for this and wear button down shirts.
