Something happened at work today that has me wondering if I really am too old.
I work as a baker(suprise, suprise) at the cafe in our library. From my workstation in the kitchen I can see out to the serving line. I saw a customer in line that I had seen before, a middle aged guy(read, older than me, I’m only 48), who has absolutely the worst looking toupee I have ever seen. Although it matches in color what I can see of the hair he has left, a medium brown, it it sort of fuzzy/curly looking, while his own hair appears to be straight.
I mentioned him to our dishwasher, a young man of about 20. And I said to him “it looks as if he has a Tribble perched on top of his head!” Instead of getting agreement with my supremely witty comment, all I got was a blank stare. “You didn’t see the original Star Trek?” “Nope” You really don’t know what a Tribble is?" “Nope” I thought about explaining but decided against it.
So is it just me being out of touch with today’s culture?
