One of my most favorite former students came to see me after school the other day. She's a senior now and just got into the college of her choice. We had this conversation:
Girl: I got in!
Me: I'm so proud of you!
Girl: Thank you! I'm going to be a [College Mascot] of 2017.
Me: Uh...2017?! Dear god. Do you know how old I'll be in 2017?
Girl: OMG, that's almost 40!
Me, bursting out laughing: Thanks for reminding me.
Girl: I mean, it's not THAT old...
This conversation reminded me of this day.
