You know you're getting old when...

... your idea of a hot date on a Saturday night is going out with your hubby to the grand reopening of your remodeled local supermarket.

Livin' on the edge!

I felt a little better when hubby told me that he heard some guy (much younger) on his cell phone, saying, "Have you seen the new Ralphs? You gotta get up here." To be fair, it was rather splendid, with an entire island devoted to sandwiches, soups, and sushi, and another devoted to a small franchise of The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf. It also had a big seating area with five or six tables near the books and magazine section, and a "bistro" for carryout food.

But still--how pathetic.

Later in the evening, we did watch a DVD of Marie Antoinette, with Kirsten Dunst and a contemporary rock score. Does that redeem us in the cool department? Even a little? I fear it's hopeless.
