    So a child asked me what grade I was in today...

    ...and I thought about it for a sec, and came up with the best answer I could.

    I'm in 25th grade.

    She was really cute, but now I feel old.

    I would have said "I'm not in school anymore, you stupid kid, now get out of my way!" Then I would have taken her doll, knocked her over, and stormed away.

    You're not old until you get your own. You dinks are foot-loose and fancy-free. My kids remind me everyday how old I am (but now I know that is a good thing ).

    That's a side benefit of having married an older woman, when someone calls me old, I say:
    "You should see my wife!"





    Then I excuse myself to seek medical attention for my brand new wounds!
