Tonight, I went to dinner with a pretty cool eight year old and a pretty cool six year old, and we got on the subject of the show The Wild Kratts. I asked them, "Have you seen the show Zaboomafoo? It's the show that the Wild Kratts show comes from". After receiving blank stares, I told them that it was on when I was in elementary school. Then Sonny, the eight year old, asked me if I had seen Spider-Man. After I made the mistake of asking "Ooh the old ones or the new ones?", I received more blank stares. Sonny asks, " David...when were you born?" "1994". I swear it was like I had said 1776. "Well.... I was born in 2005....and Saraphina was born in 2007"
When you're having an intelligent conversation with someone about something that happened before they were born, you are, in fact, old.
