It happened today. A sudden realization that I’m getting old. It wasn’t the week-long Route 66 road trip with my best friend for our 40th birthday celebration, it wasn’t a new gray hair (or loss of hair), it was Super Glue. Yes, Super Glue.
My 7-year old broke a toy and asked if I could glue it back together. I explained that regular glue wouldn’t solve this dilemma, we needed Super Glue! Then she uttered the phrase that changed my paradigm – “Daddy, what’s Super Glue”? I answered it easily, then realized that I was around when Super Glue came out. You remember, the commercial where the guy hangsfrom a girder with his construction hat Super Glued to it. I WAS THERE! I REMEMBER WHEN THEY INVENTED SUPER GLUE!
Now if you excuse me, I’m going to go dust off my 80’s records and watch Beetlejuice.
