A sampling of things that make me feel ancient:
- Wondering if my 10-year high school reunion is coming up and then realizing, Oh s**t, it would have been last year. Wait, was I not invited?!
- Finding my first gray … pube.
- Discovering Eminem‘s daugher, Hailie Jade Mathers, is on Twitter and WTF, she’s 15?!?!?!
Realizing that Eminem’s beloved daughter — who fans first got to know as the babbling toddler on Slim Shady’s first album — is a teenager gave me a sudden case of the olds, but at least it’s a relief to see that Hailie seems like a smart, kind, well-spoken girl. Recently, she’s been tweeting about donating to the Red Cross to help those affected by the earthquake/tsunami is Japan and sharing inspirational quotes, like, “A real man doesn’t need to romance a different girl every night. A REAL man romances the same girl for the rest of his life.” Nice to see that despite her parents, uh, struggles, Hailie has turned out to be a lovely, mature young lady. [Twitter]
