I'm almost at a loss for words.
I saw something I never thought I'd see.
Oh, not that I doubted it. It's just that it never occurred to me that I'd see it.
And now that I've seen it, my whole perspective on life has changed.
Oh, sure, the jokes you hear ... things are hinted at. But when it's no longer a joke ... but something for real ... then it's a life-changing experience.
I went to the AARP Web site this weekend. And I saw something I didn't think I'd see.
They're advertising an event featuring Rod Stewart.
Yes, the same guy that sang the words, "Wake up, Maggie, I think I got something to say to you. It's late September and I really should be back at school..."
The same guy who sang "Hot Legs" and "Tonight's the Night" and "I Was Only Joking" and "Reason To Believe" and "You're In My Heart" and "Da Ya Think I'm Sexy?"
Yes, AARP is sponsoring Rod Stewart.
My life will never be the same.
I mean, I knew I was getting old. I just didn't realize everyone else was, too.
