When suddenly you realize you're old

When I was younger I remember hearing old farts say, "But I don't feel old on the inside!"  And I'd think whatever, dude.  TAKE A LOOK IN A MIRROR.

But now?  Well, let's just say that Karma is a true thing which was not invented by the Beatles after the went to India because now I feel the same way and I had an experience the other night that reminded me of it.

I was watching the Cubs and noticed suddenly how beautiful Kris Bryant is (although only when he's wearing a hat--he's like my former boyfriend Dennis Eckersley that way) so I texted my thirties-something friend Jame Ortwein because she follows baseball, too.  This is how our conversation went:

ME:  Chris Bryant is waaaaay easy on the eyeballs.

JAMIE:  I am googling now.  Ha!  His name is spelled with a "k."  Gross.

ME:  He's up to bat right now, throwing the pitcher smoldering looks.

JAMIE:  Haha.  Born in '92.  I can't even process.

ME:  Ugh.  He's almost my youngest kid.  As Cher said in Clueless that just harshed my buzz.

Actually, I don't know if Cher said that.  Maybe Tai did.  Or Dionne.  But whatever.  That's not the point.  The point is how did I get to be this age, is what I'm saying.

Oh gosh, I love you. This post. Bahaha. I teach college people who were born in '97, which is the year I got married. Gah!

That is the point, isn't it? I refuse. That's all.
