A Matter of Perspective

Moose and his mom and I were going somewhere the other day. I'm not sure what he did but I said, with my best upper lip only sneer, "Thank you. Thank you very much". Moose informed me that he did the best Elvis impersonation in his old school.

I told him I was impressed but that I would be even more impressed if he knew who Elvis was. He told me it was Elvis Presley. I told him that was good but who was Elvis Presley? He told me he was a singer from the olden days. I asked him what kind of music Elvis sang and he told me Hawaiian music and stuff like that. I asked him when Elvis did all of this singing. He said that it was a long, long time ago. I asked him when and he said, "Way back in the 19s".

I laughed.

Until that moment, I had not realized that the child was only alive for 2 1/2 months of the "1900s". I suddenly feel very old.
