“I’m Sure Many Teachers have Asked”

“I’m Sure Many Teachers have Asked”

 

 

 

 

 

Have you ever been guilty of looking at others your own age and thinking, "Surely I can't look that old!" Well...you'll love this one.

My name is Alice, and I was sitting in the waiting room for my first appointment with a new dentist. I noticed his DDS Diploma on the wall, which bore his full name.

Suddenly I remembered a tall, handsome, dark-haired boy with the same name had been in my school class some 40 years ago. Could he be the same guy that I had a secret crush on way back then?

Upon seeing him, I quickly discarded any such thought. This balding, gray-haired man, with the deeply lined face, was way too old to have been my classmate.

After he examined my teeth, I asked him if he had attended Monta Vista High School.

"Yes", he said. "I am a Matador!" He gleamed with pride.

"When did you graduate?" I asked.

He answered, "In 1973. Why do you ask?"

"You were in my class," I exclaimed.

He looked at me closely, then this ugly, old, bald, wrinkle faced, fat-assed, gray haired decrepit son of a b--ch asked me..........

"What did you teach?"

Man oh man!  That one took me by surprise!

And, I might add, when I attended my high school reunion last year, I noticed I was the only one who had not aged.

Oh wow, Joe! I remember going to my 40th high school reunion and wondering who those old people surrounding me were... and then I remembered I was one of those old people!
