Tomorrow is the birthday of one of my good friends at the office. She will be a whopping 26 years old.
Yesterday, she received flowers from the co-workers in her department and called me to her office to see them. It was a huge arrangement at least four feet tall with some unusual blooms in it. We agreed that some of the plants looked like something that would be in the movie Little Shop of Horrors.
I said, "Have you ever seen the old version of Little Shop of Horrors?"
Carly said, "Yeah, the one with Steve Martin?"
That's when I realized that Carly was 6 years old when the remake was made. To her, that was the old version. To me, the version made in 1960, when I was 5 years old, is the old version.
Damn, young whippersnapper.
