We have a check-in at the beginning of every skills class, a very touchy-feely way to let everyone know whether or not they can mess with you that day. Might be what weather you're feeling like, the music you last listened to, that kind of thing. Thursday we checked in with what cartoon character we were feeling like.
Man, I felt so old! They were Bubbles (the Powerpuff girl) and Angel Bright, a Pokemon, some other things I'd never heard of. A couple of them started talking about Fraggle Rock, something the kids I would babysit used to watch! And then another girl mentioned the Smurfs. I brightened up (they're MY generation, kind of) and then she talked about how she loved the "old" cartoons. Jeesh.
I felt like Road Runner that day...things were going well and obstacles just weren't getting in my way. Except that yawning chasm of a generation gap. Meep Meep!
