Im not THAT old

" 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!
I was sitting in the waiting room for my first appointment with a new dentist.
I noticed his, DDS, which bore his full name. Suddenly, I remembered a tall,
handsome, dark-haired boy with the same name had been in my high school class some 40-odd years ago.

Could he be the same guy that I had a secret crush on, way back then?
Upon seeing him, however, 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.
Hmmm ... Or could he? After he examined my teeth,
I asked him if he had attended MorganPark High School. "

Yes. Yes, I did. I'm a Mustang," he gleamed with pride. "When did you graduate?" I asked.
He answered, "In 1959. Why do you ask?"
"You were in my class!" I exclaimed.

He looked at me closely. Then, that ugly, old, wrinkled SOB asked,
"What did you teach?"

Thanks Sandy
I know the feeling
