Note to "American Idol" Producers: Yes, last night's show DID make me feel really old. Thanks for that!
Last night's wacky-yet-wonderful "sing a song from the year you were born" night on AI made me feel really OLD. Little David (who is really getting on my last nerve!) was born in 1990! When Older & Much Better David performed his cleverly-awesome version of "Billy Jean," I had many a flashback of ninth grade. The year was 1983 and I was 14, and I LOVED that song! (In fact, I had to go you-tube Michael Jackson's version last night, just to show the girls how bizarrely different his version was from David's last night.)
So, yeah, thanks to the producers for making me say repeatedly, "I was a freshman in college when she was born!" and "I was 17 when that song came out!" and "Okay, HOW much older can I feel?" and "Boy, I loved that song...makes me think of one specific guy" (insert eye-rolling by the girls here!).
Thank goodness for Delaney, who said: "Mom, you're NOT old. These people are just really young." That's my girl!
(You all do know that I'll be 40 in August, right? LOL)
