OK, now I'm old
We all have those moments when we realize that we are older than our self-image. Beyond life's mileposts (graduation, marriage, parenthood), there are times when we figure out that people who were always younger than us who are now older.
Today I realized that, for the first time, a serious Presidential contender is younger than I am. Barack Obama is almost exactly three months younger than me. I don't know if he'll win, and I don't know if I would vote for him. But, he's a contender. And, I am no longer as young as I always thought I was.
