Eighteen years ago today, Germany was reunified. I was in the Bundeswehr at the time, in the middle of my NCO course in Bremen.
There are kids out there who will be able to vote in this election…kids who were born on that day, kids who have never known a world without an East Germany or a Soviet Union.
But you know what really makes me feel old? Looking at the datasheet of the Playmate of the Month, noticing her birth date, and being able to remember exactly what kind of car I was driving that year.
(Not that I buy Playboy or anything…it’s not the boobies that Robin would find objectionable, but the money spent on the subscription. I mean, in the age of the Intertubes, is there anyone out there who pays money for pictures of naked people?)
Ah, history. Who knew we’d become a part of it sooner or later?
