When Did I Become Sir?

I care less about facial hair trends and the width of my pants legs.

Posted Dec 22, 2013

I'm OK with not being hip. Turns out, I never was. I was raised on the age of Loverboy, Huey Lewis and the News and Olivia Newton John. I was doomed from the start.

And I am slowly taking solace in no longer caring about facial hair trends and the width of my pants legs. And I am very happy listening to "The Hustle" and Electric Light Orchestra. And rocking my cords --- my not skinny, not wide, but ordinary straight-leg cords --- and dancing the night away, indoors, where no one can call me "Sir."
