I work in an office in which I am 5-10 years older than most of my peers. Not to say I am an old lady,  I would just say we are progressive enough to have recent college graduates or people who are still figuring out how to buy beer without getting caught.

Not too long ago we had a marketing project in the office which required everyone to log into Twitter and tweet about a particular event.  Not everyone in the office had a Twitter account (and I’m the old one?) and there was some signing up, and then general inquiries were being thrown about. One of the new twits asked “How do I get more followers?” To which I replied “Well, first you get some Kool-Aid.”

The room fell silent because no one knew what this meant. Well, now I feel old, maybe I should go get a shawl and douse myself in Chanel No. 5.
