Me + Old People

I'm an old person. I think I already knew this, but the scary thing is it's normal now. Last night I was very excited to go to a free big band concert in a park down the street from my house. I tried to get some friends to go, but I only had one taker. Although, that's pretty good, I don't really expect anyone to go to these things with me.

The thought hadn't really occurred to me that this concert was going to be full of the oldies until we were walking there and saw them. They came in droves with their blankets and chairs. This is really nothing strange to me, but I realized I was subjecting a friend to this. Can I do that?

Meanwhile, the concert was lovely. The band was great and they played some fun old songs. The old people were thrilled. And so was I.

That sounds like a lot of fun to me! Too bad there aren't more "old souls" around.
