I don't like it.
At. all.

Agreed! A number of years ago I realized that almost all authority figures in my life (cops, doctors, bosses, bouncers, etc.) were now younger than I. It felt weird. But there's an upside -- a lot less intimidation ;^)

Right there with Winetipper. I think the only two older than me are my PCP and on GYN. I'm sure they'll be retiring any day now.

FLOTUS being younger is a bit more tolerable...a bit...but the POTUS being younger??? Disconcerting.

The whole world is younger than me

Just do what my Dad did. Pick an age - any age - and claim it as your own. He has claimed 19!

I'm with ya, even though he has 6 years on me. Still, more and more people of note are now younger than me. Born in the '70s, even. I am starting to hate that.

When Bill Clinton was President, a columnist mentioned that Mick Jagger was older than our President.

Ouch.

Nancy said...

Yep, I've pretty much become invisible to much of the population.

Matty said...

I didn't know it was his birthday until I saw it advertised on another blog. I won't be sending him any well wishes though.

Just remember, there are plenty of people older than you too.

I will stay perfectly implanted in my emotional age, thank you.

Magpie said...

Oh yeah. I so totally hear you on that one...

Chesapeake Bay Woman said...

Try being the oldest in your office, where your BOSS IS THIRTY FRIGGIN FIVE and has only been shaving for two years.

Off to cry now.

Debbie said...

I just don't get why the camera lies. I don't see ALL of THAT when I look in the mirror...

Yes, older than dirt...

We at least get a bit of credibility for a brief period of time, before we get demented.
