Ok, I’m a baby boomer — I mean a real “baby” boomer. I’m about to turn 59, the tail end of the boomers (which traditionally end in 1964, not 1961). I’m still struggling to not get ticked off at the “ok, boomer” thing, and now that the Xers are drawing fire I’m having a good laugh. Welcome to the “uncool” side of the pillow! Loved this piece.
