Reality Check

A sweet little fourth grader here at school just brought a book on the Beatles up to the check out desk. She was all excited and wanted to check it out because (and I am not making this up) "her Papaw' just loves that band best of all."

The librarian and I sat in stunned silence as I checked the book out, then we looked at each other and both blurted out at the same instant "Okay, I feel really old!"

Then we broke down into paroxysms of laughter that pretty much scared the rest of the kids in the library.

Granted I was four the year the Beatles came to this country and twelve the year they broke up, but her statement was a total reality check.
