Are we really that pathetic?

The other day, the little woman and I went to a movie. One of my (former) students asked if she and her boyfriend could come along, so I said sure. No big, right. Fun was had by all, as expected, but then I got to thinking....this was sort of a double date (unofficially). The sad part was that it was with a 18 and 16 yr old.

Normally, age is nothing but a number to me, but I can't help but wonder. Are we that pathetic couple that hangs out with younger people in hopes of grasping at the last bit of youth before it slips away? I tend to think not. Like I said before, this was a spur of the moment thing, and it just so happened that they asked to come.

What about our friends our age, you may ask? Well, fact is, scheduling something with them is next to impossible. Last time we got together was the 4th of July. Before that it was the holidays.

Oh well, take what you can get I guess. Not like we're out doing unspeakable sex acts or getting them drunk or anything....although I do wonder what was in that coke they snuck

There's a lot to be gained with intergenerational activities. Of course, there just might be something to lose as well. :)

haha there is actually a person I specifically thought of when you mentioned the older person clinging to their youth.I know someone like that! I think that would make me just feel older. I prefer to hang out with people either my age or older! haha

I believe it is your birthday! If it is, happy birthday, may there be many more...
Ps, you are correct, age is but a number, my wife is 17 years younger than me, and most of our friends are her age, and so far no one has dared tell me I am too old to hang out with them.....:-)
Hope you enjoy your day!
