How Did This Happen?
The freshman moved (or should I say infested) onto campus last week.
My orientation class met on Friday. On the roster, I have all kinds of information and guess what?
These COLLEGE FRESHMEN were born the year I graduated from high school!!
That is sick and wrong and someone needs to fix that now.
And also? One of the female students told me she didn't like her name (we were doing an ice breaker about the origin of our names) because it was so "old-timer" - her name? Karen. Yeah, get out the walker and the Ben-Gay, Karen!
Karen is now an "old" name? I understand Ethel, Ruth, Ruby, Pearl, Hilda and Bertha and even Sadie (although apparently, the name Sadie is enjoying a comeback). But Karen?
Damn. I'm old. How did that happen?
