Ancient One

Usually I get heckled by my kids for being so old.  Now my students are doing it.  I made the mistake of commenting on a piece of music from the musical, Oklahoma.

"This song has been around a bazillion years," I said.

My student looked at me funny.  "You've been around a bazillion years?"

"No, not me - the song."

It didn't register.  "That means, you're like immortal," the student said.  Then she flipped through the rest of the book.  "Do you know all of these songs, too?"

I nodded. 

"Wow, you are ancient!"

So I guess I'm ancient and immortal.  That makes me feel so good. Not!
