Encroaching Decrepitude

Yesterday in one of my classes, we were doing the usual "And what did you do this weekend?" round of questions. One of my students said she watched (and I quote) "a really, really old movie."

I, knowing she's a bit of a film buff, was thinking something along the lines of Breakfast at Tiffany's, or maybe an old Hitchcock film.

"What was it?" I asked.

"Dead Poets' Society."

Guess I'll go get in line for my walker now.

Oh that's funny. And I'm sorry. I'm glad it happened to you, not me. Ok I'm sorry again. Don't hurt me.

Good lord. That means that Breakfast club is just barely a 'talkie' then, doesn't it?

Be sure to save a walker for me. Dang - students say the best things.
