Ah, well, I suppose if you last long enough you can’t help but feel old.
One of my co-workers went on pregnancy leave last week. We held the usual party including cake during her last day. Last night, right about this time, in fact (7:15 p.m.), I emailed a picture of her cutting the cake.
She texted her response about half an hour later. She was in labor, in the hospital, expecting the kid in another 12 hours, but wanted to thank me for the photograph.
Texted me. During labor.
Bet your mom didn’t do that.
