Discussing Ancient History

Genevieve: Mama, were you 11 years old in 1892?

Me:
NO! That's NINETEEN EIGHTY-TWO.


Julia:
Did they say 'thee' and 'thou' in 1982?


Suddenly I feel very, very old.

Just spit green tea all over my monitor. Hilarious!

And? I was *only* EIGHT in 1982, so I'm practically a TINY NEWBORN BABY, yes?

Ok, probably not.

I didst graduate from high school in 1982, and can verily summon up in my feeble mind sundry recollections of that year, including such signs of the end times as the first solo album of Phil Collins, whereby he didst forsake and excommunicate himself from the true faith of progressive rock. But I am mindful that these are merely the ravings of a senile brain.
