I got old.
A little snippet from a conversation with my babysitter while driving her home:
"Well, you know, Kirk Cameron."-me
"From 'Growing Pains.'"-me, said with the assurance that she would totally get who I was talking about.
"Hunh-uh. Growing Pains? I don't know who that is."-Cassie
doing the slow blink, "Um. Hm. OOOOH MAAAAAAAAAAN! It was before your time!!!!!!!!!"
I am usually the one on the receiving end of that conversation. HOW could anyone NOT know who Kirk Cameron is. Has it really come to this? Is he the Donny Osmond of the 90's? I am seriously baffled. I've been laughing it off when people call me "Mrs." or respond with a "ma'am." I guess it's official, though.
