Lane Tech Lolitas

Today I had lunch near massive Lane Tech High School, my wife's alma mater. After ordering my sandwich, I sat at the counter facing the sidewalk. Lane Tech has an open campus, so many students went out for lunch. As I watched waves of attractive young females walk by, I couldn't help thinking, It's a jailbait parade!

Then "Burning Down the House" by Talking Heads played over the restaurant's overhead speakers. I thought, Holy shit, these girls weren't even born when this song came out. And a split second later, These girls weren't even born when Talking Heads broke up!*

All my life, I've been training to be a dirty old man.

* "Burning Down the House" came out in 1983 and the band officially broke up in 1991.
