Catching Up

I’m usually a few years behind the times.

CDs came out in 1982.  I didn’t get my first CD until 1998.  It was an interesting choice.


DVDs came out in 1995.  I bought my first DVD in 2002.


I didn’t watch “The Godfather” until 2009.  I finally joined the smartphone world in 2010.  I still haven’t seen “Dirty Dancing.”  Or “Grease.”


And now, twenty-eight years after they were first released, I just bought my first pair of Jordans.


(Just like a photo of [[ insert any female pop star name, other than Christina Aguilera, here ]], I could stare at that picture all day.)

Although I’m at least 10 years too old for those bad boys, I haven’t been this excited about something since discovering the Triple Stuf Oreo.  Or the N.K.O.T.B.S.B. tour.  Or finding out that a FroZenYo was opening up across the street from my office.

To my friends in the DC area:  please accept my sincerest apologies for the bright and tacky outfits I’ll be rocking with these kicks.  Hide yo’ kids!
