Blast from the past.


When I was out shopping for the boys stocking I came across a huge display of gum. When I first saw it I thought 'Oh my God, I used to love these!'



Then it struck me. Why? Yes, it really does taste like soap.

Anyway, just now, the boy asks me if I want a gum. "Sure." Then he snickers. I pop it into my mouth and start to chew, yup, just how I remember it.

He looks at me, "You like that?"

"Uh huh."

"But it tastes awful. "

"Ya, says 'still tastes like soap' right on the package."


He looks at it, he thought it was joke gum. "And you like it?"

"Ya, used to eat it all the time when I was a kid."

"Why?"

"No earthly idea."

Hahah..You just brought back distant memories. You know, sometimes I think youth is wasted on the young. Nobody nowadays has memories like this anymore.

You know what happened to me today? I spoke to someone who was not familiar with Millie Vanilli. How is that even possible? Was it just me, or are we getting old?

I don't know about you, but the old thing is definitely creeping up on me.

I was kidding with someone the other day and said, "Lucy, you got some s'plainin' to do." (in my best bad cuban accent)

She looked at me and said, "My name is Amy."

GROAN!
