I guess I'm old....

Yarmulke.

Google - you should try it. It's sort of "new fangled", but I bet you'll get the hang of it. Unless, you know, you've got that whole "old dog, new trick"-thing going on.

And yes, all of those things make you old. Welcome to the club. In fact, I think I'm older then you are.

no, no and a thousand times NO!

Do old people stay out until 1AM going to boxing matches?

And I want to know, IM, how you google Yarmulke if you think it is spelled yamaka. That used to drive me crazy when I'd ask a teacher to spell something and she'd send me to the dictionary. IF I KNEW HOW TO SPELL IT TO LOOK IT UP, I WOULDN'T BE ASKING!
