Have you ever been guilty of looking at others your own age and
thinking, surely i can't look that old? Well......you'll love this
My name is alice smith and i was sitting in the waiting room for my
first appointment with a dental new dentist. I noticed his diploma,
which bore his full name.
Suddenly, i remembered a tall, handsome, dark haired boy with the same
name had been in my secondary school class some 30-odd years ago.
Could he be the same guy that i had a secret crush on, way back then?
Upon seeing him, however, i quickly discarded any such thought.
This balding, grey haired man with the deeply lined face was far too
old to have been my classmate. After he examined my teeth, i asked him
if he had attended morgan park secondary school ....
'yes, yes i did. I'm a morganner! 'he beamed with pride.
'when did you leave to go to college?' i asked
he answered, in 1965. Why do you ask?
'you were in my class!' i exclaimed.
He looked at me closely.
Then the ugly,
'what did you teach?'
