Not as young as we think..!

Sometimes we don't want to accept our age, do we? I wore my red shirt today, oh yes and the cream pants that didn't have pleats but which by pulling tummy back managed to show a somewhat slim waistline. "Where are you going?" asked the daughters.
"Why?" I asked trying to look puzzled.
"Fancy outfit!"
My wife and I got into the car and I grinned to myself. "Something funny?"
"I was just thinking how other guys my age look so old!" I said, "You know what I mean?"
"No!"
"They don't look after themselves! See Ashok, he's got a stomach worse than a nine month woman!"
"What's a nine month woman!"
"Let it be!" I said.
"You think you look quite young huh?"
"Yeah!" I said.
"Let me drive!"
"Why?"
"Read this," she said, offering me a piece of the Sunday page. I exchanged places and started: "Have you ever been guilty of looking at others your own age and thinking, surely I can't look that old?" said the article, "Well...you'll love this one!
"I was sitting in the waiting room for my first appointment with a new dentist.
I noticed his DDS diploma, which bore his full name.
Suddenly, I remembered a tall, handsome, dark-haired boy with the same name had been in my high school class some 40-odd years ago.
Could he be the same guy that I had a secret crush on, way back then??
Upon seeing him, however, I quickly discarded any such thought.
This balding, gray-haired man with the deeply lined face was way too old to have been my classmate. Hmmm ...or could he???
After he examined my teeth, I asked him if he had attended Morgan Park high school.
"Yes. Yes, I did. I was a prefect!" he gleamed with pride.
"When did you graduate?" I asked.
He answered, "In 1969 why do you ask?"
"You were in my class!" I exclaimed.
He looked at me closely.
Then that ugly, old, wrinkled idiot asked, "What did you teach?"
I laughed out loud and released my tummy as I got out of the car, "Okay," I grinned to the wife, "You win..!"
