PEOPLE CONSTANTLY TELL ME THAT I LOOK YOUNGER THAT I AM.  IN FACT, THEY ESTIMATE ME FOR ANYWHERE BETWEEN 10-15 YEARS YOUNGER THAN MY BIRTH CERTIFICATE.  IT HAS ALWAYS BEEN A SENSE OF PRIDE TO ME, AFTER ALL WHO WANTS TO START LOOKING OLD.  THEN, I HAD AN EXPERIENCE I WOULD LIKE TO SHARE WITH YOU.
I WAS SITTING IN THE WAITING ROOM FOR MY FIRST APPOINTMENT WITH A NEW DENTIST. I NOTICED HER DENTAL DIPLOMA, WHICH BORE HER FULL NAME.SUDDENLY, I REMEMBERED A TALL, GORGEOUS, DARK HAIRED GIRL WITH THE SAMENAME HAD BEEN IN MY SECONDARY SCHOOL CLASS SOME 30-ODD YEARS AGO.images-25 copy

COULD S HE BE THE SAME GIRL THAT I HAD A SECRET CRUSH ON, WAY BACK THEN?

UPON SEEING HER, HOWEVER, I QUICKLY DISCARDED ANY SUCH THOUGHT.

THIS THINNING, GREY HAIRED WOMAN WITH THE DEEPLY LINED FACE WAS FAR TOO
OLD TO HAVE BEEN MY CLASSMATE. AFTER SHE EXAMINED MY TEETH, I ASKED HER
IF SHE HAD ATTENDED MORGAN PARK SECONDARY SCHOOL .

‘YES, YES I DID. I’M A MORGANNER! SHE BEAMED WITH PRIDE.

‘WHEN DID YOU LEAVE TO GO TO COLLEGE?’ I ASKED

SHE ANSWERED, IN 1965. WHY DO YOU ASK?

‘YOU WERE IN MY CLASS!’ I EXCLAIMED.

SHE LOOKED AT ME CLOSELY.

THEN THE UGLY,

OLD,

THIN HAIRED,

WRINKLED,

SHORT-SIGHTED,

GREY HAIRED,

DECREPIT,

BITCH ASKED..
