|I never thought I'd ever be thirtysomething.
I have a confession to make. In the late 1980s, I loved the TV show thirtysomething. I remember thinking Ken Olin was hot, but other than that, I'm not sure why the 60-minute ABC drama appealed to me. I think maybe I hoped that by the time I myself was thirty-something, I too would be smart and savvy.
You know you're old when you remember watching thirtysomething and thinking the couples were so old. You never thought you'd ever be that old. Did you? Seriously, when you were fifteen, did you see yourself with a career? Did you see yourself driving your kids to soccer practice? I never envisioned myself as a grownup. It's sad to admit, but for some reason, I honestly thought I'd never grow old.
