How did I get so old?

Let’s see. It’s 2003 now. 2003 minus 1996 (let me get the calculator) is 7. Seven years. Seven years? That was seven years ago? Holy cow. Sure, sure, in the meantime I’ve received three diplomas, called eleven different bedrooms home, and learned how to make tuna noodle casserole. But still… seven years!

Of course, I still think of Back to the Future as having taken place just yesterday. I probably don’t want to know how long ago 1985 was, or that right now we’re actually closer to 2015. Please don’t tell me.
