I've never thought of 26 as old, but I was corrected the other day in my math class. I'm in a pre-calculus class with mostly 18 year old kids who just graduated high school in May. We work in groups and I am with 3 of these kids that just graduated. We finished our little work-sheet first and the teacher came by to make sure we had it correct. One of the kids says "yeah, we're legit."
and I say "too legit to quit."
The other girl in the group says "oh, I love that movie!!"
I say, "what are you talking about?"
She says "Talladega Nights, that's where you got that from, right?"
I said, "no, I got it from the MC Hammer song, Too Legit To Quit" (I did the hand movements with it, and I know you all know what I'm talking about).
I got nothing but blank stares from these kids!!! There is a whole generation out there that thinks Will Ferrell made that up!!!
I decided to put my dentures back in, wrap my shawl more tightly around my shoulders and wait for my imminent death from old age.
