Feeling Old

I was listening to ESPN Radio this morning, as usual. When the guys subbing for Mike & Mike mentioned that Michael Jackson is turning 50 today. Fifty! Then they went on a hilarious riff about his greatest songs, which led into a discussion of the Thriller album (and video -- how scary & cool it was, etc. And how Vincent Price was rapping on that album and how his haunting laugh can still freak us out). Memories of High School and College days. I'm feeling nostalgic. And old.

High school and college! I was teaching and married a few years when Thriller came out!

That was before Michael became completely weird. I like "Thriller" but my favorite by MJ was "Off the Wall."
