When I see a guy in his late 40s riding a BMX or wearing his punk vest with Misfits patches, I feel pretty good with how I'm handling aging. Or when I see the guy from the Cure in 2019. Good God.

Donnie Ebert wrote:My kids started at a new school, and I was asking my 2nd grade son who he has been playing with at recess. He was being coy about it (probably because he's still adapting to all the change), so to guess who he's been hanging out with I started listing names that were common when I was a kid, like Matt, Jason, or Scott. This made him laugh, and as I kept saying similar names like Kevin or Dave or Tom, he was rolling on the floor as if I were someone from the early 1900's and saying names like Morton or Aloysius or Elmer or Jasper.
I think there are 12 Jaxson's in my 1st graders class...

And at least 3 Crue's in the school...

I am assuming that is what it is for.

There is also a Jett and a Rocket in one of my daughters classes.
