On becoming a demographic

Oh, man, I was just watching television and this Subaru commercial came on and then, for a split second, I felt this odd mix of fear and appreciation and awe at the fact that they managed to push all of my buttons at once because, you see, that’s going to be me someday, watching his little girl grow up and drive cars and go away to college and do things I won’t even know about and, I’m serious, I’ve never been so proud to own a Subaru.

Then, just like that, it hit me.

I’m that demographic, you guys. My buttons were pushed because people who have the jobs that I gave up managed to push the buttons in the most perfect way.

Damn it.

And bravo.
