Today's lesson on aging

I attended, in my capacity as chair of the Alumni Admissions Interview thing for my college, a reception held on the Upper East Side for incoming freshmen. I took the bus up Madison Avenue and got off at my old stop -- 72nd and Madison -- from when I used to live in that neighborhood.

I miss it still. Lots of changes, many not for the better.

But, I digress.

I learned I was aging as I mingled with the matriculating students and their parents. It was not that the new stutdents looked so young, although many of them did. It was not because I thought that it was somehow wrong to find so many of the incoming freshmen girls attractive, because they were. No, ultimately what made me feel old was that I found some of the mothers of the incoming students were more attractive. That is officially old -- when you'd rather chat with the mother than the daughter.

I am aging; albeit not gracefully.

I remember going to pick up one of the kids at High School one day and being absolutely floored that they all looked so young; BABIES!

Especially since I was rather, uh...precocious, let's say...*ahem* at only 15.

I was a frigging BABY back then, what was I thinking? lol

I think the fact that you found the mothers more attractive than the daughters is a perfect example of aging gracefully.
