Well it has happened. I mean, I knew it was already happening...but today it was official.
I am no longer "with it".
While checking out the woot t shirt of the day recently, I saw the one below and loved it. After all it was organic cotton and depicted a ultra awesome hippie-type design of the four elements! Earth, air, fire amd wind!! Just up my alley! It arrived in the mail a few days ago and I wore it today for the first time. My morning started with the "Mother's Day Brunch" at my son's school. I walked in his classroom door and instantly felt like a celebrity! All the kids LOVED MY SHIRT! Then they explained it actually isn't a hippie shirt at all, but rather some reference to this anime cartoon called The Last Airbender. Of course I have never seen the show and looked like some out of touch OLD PERSON surrounded by preteens giggling at my obliviousness to all that is cool.
This is probably the first of countless times my son and his peers make fun of me...
Here's hoping I still find it funny in the years to come ;)
