Journal freaq's Journal: i feel so old

...but i'm not even forty yet. Our new roommate just asked me...

"King Crimson...are they ska?"

My first reaction was a loud guffaw, but then I realized it was an earnest question. At least I had fun showing him that King Crimson is not 'ska', by contrasting 'Discipline' with 'Sleepless'; I also discovered that they have NOT been around since before I was born.
Just a few weeks back i was met with quizzical looks when I mentioned apartheid in passing.
Am i going to have to do more explaining of minor things as the years go on? Is that the second tax on long life (the first being going to funerals)?
