You look pretty good for 55

Friday a student came up to me after class, a kid I've never spoken to personally.

"Sensei," he said in a slightly hesitant manner, "do you know Woodstock?"

"Of course."

"Were you there?"

It took a couple of moments to recover.

"I was only 8 years old then."

"Oh," he said and smiled, "Sorry." I smiled, too.

He didn't say anything more before leaving the room.

More evidence that, at least in the eyes of students, I'm an old fart.
