gettin' old?

denjames is gettin old.. so fast..
proof #1: today my soulmate and me got us a braun electric toothbrush.. on dentist prescription, that's true, but still.. electric toothbrushes are not supposed to be bought by people under at least 40.. you're supposed to have the energy to do the brushing yourselves.. anyway, our dentist says those brushes are more efficient; effective if you want.. she's over 40..
proof #2: tomorrow's my soulmate's birthday - how much more in the face can do you want it..
proof #3: for a birhtday present - i can tell you that already - i've found a new electronic radio alarm for which the clock part - and this is the freaky bit - is guided by radio waves, so you never have to manually set it right whenever the 'ploƱ' gives in, or when summertime (daylight saving time) switches from one to the other.. all the charm of sleeping too long because you had an electricity failure somewhere during the night: no more excuses! setting the clock one minute too far so you had to hold the button for another 23 hours and 59 minutes just to get it right (those japanese made sony things never seem to have a 'rewind' button for those 'one minute accidents') - all over..

funny that it are these home appliances which have been around for years that make me realise i'm gettin old.. rather than me trying to keep up with new technology - mp3, blogs, homeworking through VPN, digital canon IXUS, GPS systems on a bycicle.. maybe it's because it's the kind of technology that my parents use, toothbrushing away.. never thought i'd become such a parent.. so fast..
