When the doctor says, "you're not twenty five anymore" and your hero, Peter Pan, is no longer there with a quick reply.

Aw.

I felt old when I overheard a woman say to a man she was with, "Act your age."


I'm not sure how I would respond to that.  ;)

On Monday, I attended and volunteered to work at an Andrew Yang for President 2020 Rally in Los Angeles, which in and of itself is weird and unprecedented for me. I'm not one to actually work a campaign. That's another story.

There were thousands of people at the rally. Mostly college students. I worked a booth directly in front of the stage at Macarthur Park, about 100 yards away, to the left of the news media platform.  Everyone, there was positive and touting the messages of Andrew Yang and how they were disengaged for so many years and finally found a person to champion in, Andrew Yang, or how they had, "Upgraded" from Bernie Sanders.

One of the volunteers hooked me up with, Slack, which I admitted I had never heard of and I was suddenly dubbed, The Boomer. "We got a Boomer here!"

The Boomer is a 56-year-old woman in a sea of Millenials. That is my official nickname with the group I volunteered with.
I wear that nickname with a sense of pride and a feeling of being old.

Oh, to be 19 or in my 20s again.
