Howdy gang! Guess I had best try to explain that header huh?
As I grow to be more of a classic I find myself saying ‘This or that was before your time’ to Miss Yodeling more and more. When the heck did my time become before her time? Must have been about the same time a check-out clerk at Wal-Mart first called me Ma`am. Or when Mister and I went out to celebrate our anniversary and no-one carded me to ensure I was over twenty-one when I ordered a glass of red wine. Or possibly when the mailman began delivering brochures from AARP and I actually started reading them because you know…..three months and the big 50 shall be upon me.
Anydoodles, back to the latest ‘This was before your time’ I was talking about before I began to ramble. The past two days have been spent with my daughter. Wednesday we had a snow day. We had been all sorts of excited, thinking we`d have all day to play video games and chat about boys and what-not. As the day went on Miss Yodeling felt worse and worse. By Wednesday night her throat was so sore she sounded as if she had swallowed glass. Yesterday she stayed home from school to rest.
Since she was home she and I once more had all day to twiddle away the time, so we sat down to watch some episodes of one of our favorite shows ‘Who`s line is it anyway’ on YouTube. During one of the many episodes we watched as she recuperated Drew Carry made an offhanded remark that went something like this….
“Just send in a Polaroid of yourself naked and we`ll get back to you!”
Miss Yodeling looked over at me as I snorted and with sincerity etched onto her face asked…
“What`s a Polaroid?”
“It`s a camera that we used to use back in the day that would spit out this undeveloped picture.”
Blank look from the young miss followed by sigh from the classic miss.
“It was really fun to sit around and watch the picture develop.”
Arched brow from the young miss followed by a roll of eyes from the classic miss.
“It was before your time.”
Ah well, at least some of us remember what a Polaroid is right?????
