Guilty as Charged

Have you ever been guilty of looking at others your own age and thinking, "Surely I can't look that old?" Well, You'll love this one! I was sitting in the waiting room for my first appointment with a new dentist. I noticed his, DDS, 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 40-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. Hmmm ... Or could he? 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 1959. Why do you ask?" "You were in my class!" I exclaimed. He looked at me closely. Then, that ugly, old wrinkled SOB asked, "What did you teach?"

LOL, I feel your pain. A few years ago we were attending the wake after my father died. As he was a local politician there were a lot of attendees. DW and I were a few minutes early and when we looked to see who was waiting to go in I told her "Aw, just some old people". Well, as we got closer to the door I could see that those "old people" were several of my high school classmates! Getting old sure ain't for sissies, is it?

I was staying at a little beachy motel in Erie PA years ago while working a 10 month job at Kaiser Aluminum. Stayed there Sun thru Friday, usually coming home on weekends to Pittsburgh.

One Friday evening at the beginning of Koho salmon season, my Dad was checking in to the same place with some fishing buddies for a weekend outing.

The young lady behind the desk, who I have known for months, looked at his name on the registration slip, made a connection and asked him if he was my younger brother!!!

We are 24 years apart, he was 51 I was 27 yrs old then, but I already had early gray hair then, and he STIIL has jet black hair NOW!!! At 78 yrs old... He still reminds me of that. Made his day!

Thank you all so much for your transparency!
Now, I don't feel so bad about my last reunion with college mates, and several of my "contemporaries" now volunteer for "Santa" duty, as many of us "fit the suit."
Afterwards, I was given the name of a couple other alums who also volunteered, but had been unable to attend the reunion. One man, Charles, had sent me a card, with a very real Santa Claus on the cover. I wrote back to him, and said, "Hey, looks like your group found one that looks like the real deal!" He replied, "That is ME."
Even worse, as I was sorting through some family pictures, I was placing them in folders according to names. My DW happened to be going through some of them and quickly pointed out that I had placed 3 pictures in my Father's folder that were actually of ME.
Don't tell him I said that. He's much better looking.
