    Have you ever been guilty of looking at others your own age and thinking...surely I cannot look that old? If so, you may enjoy this story.

    While waiting for my first appointment in the reception room of a new dentist, I noticed his certificate, which bore his full name.

    Suddenly, I remembered that a tall, handsome boy with the same name had been in my high school class some 30 years ago.

    Upon seeing him, however, I quickly discarded any such thought. This balding, gray-haired man with the deeply lined face was way too old to have been my classmate.

    After he had examined my teeth, I asked him if he had attended the local high school.

    "Yes," he replied.

    "When did you graduate?" I asked.

    He answered, "In 1961. Why?"

    "You were in my class!" I exclaimed.

    He looked at me closely and then asked, "What did you teach?"
