I've always gotten along pretty well with friends of my daughter's and other folks I have encountered who are her contemporaries, not mine, but I seem to get along with them anyway. I like to think it keeps me young....either that or it proves I have an arrested development! LOL!
My daughter has a good friend, Mike, from her high school days, a really nice boy who grew up to be a really nice man. They were never an "item", their friendship was more of the brother/sister variety. They have stayed in touch ever since. In actuality he has become a friend of the family over the years, he was a member of Rachlet's wedding party, and we all have a mutual interest and friends in theater and performance.
Fairly early on Rachlet's friend became a single dad and he and his son have always been very close. Mike has been an involved dad and I don't think he could have possibly been more proud of his son (who has always been as cute as he could be, just like his dad).
Mike's son had a birthday this weekend. He turned 25. Happy Birthday, Tommy! Congratulations on your great son, Mike!
Sooooo, Mike is one year older than my Rachlet....and he has a son who is 25....which means Rachlet, technically, could also have had a child who could be 25...she doesn't, of course, but she could .....which means I could have a grandchild who is 25....I don't, of course, but I COULD....
And that, my friends, makes me officially Older than Dirt!!!
"Younger Than Springtime??" It's not as easy as it used to be! :)
