Just a little humor

**Looking Old**

Everyone has been guilty of looking at others who are the same age and thinking......surely I cannot look that old.......I'm sure you've done the same...you may enjoy this short story I received via email.

While waiting for my first appointment in the reception room of a new dentist, I noticed his certificate, which bore his full name.

Suddenly, I remembered that a tall, handsome boy with the same name had been in my high school class some 40 yrs ago.

Upon seeing him, however, I quickly discarded any such thought.

This balding, gray-haired man with the deeply lined face was too old to have been my classmate.

After he had examined my teeth, I asked him if he had attended the local high school, yes, he replied. When did you graduate? I asked. He answered 1957. Why, you were in my class! I exclaimed.

He looked at me closely and then asked, What did you teach?

Happy trails....

Ain't it the truth? My dad used to refer to someone as 'an old buck' and then laugh when he realized he was speaking of someone the same age. I look at people my age and say, 'Do I look like that?'

The answer is a resounding, 'YES!':D

You'll have a wonderful time. Have fun!

I was in such shock at my 20th high school anniversary that I skipped the last two but I am going to try to make it to the 30th which is just around the corner. I couldn't believe how some of the kids I graduated turned into full fledge adults. There was one guy that was just as hot as when we were in high school. I think every one of my female classmates made an effort to check this guy out. So I figure I have to go to my 30th class reunion just to see how he looks. LOL.
