>Today, I was working on a lease that was for a term of a little over 5 years. That would mean the thing expires in 2013. 2013?!? I swear I am stuck in 1996 for some reason. Does this happen to everyone as they get older? Did our parents freak out when it was 1984? Did they look around and say, “Well, George Orwell certainly scared the crap out of us. Thank God the future is better than he predicted.”
I saw an expiration date on a package of hot chocolate that was 03.27.19. I had to do a double take. Then I thought, “Will I still be alive then?” I certainly hope so since that’s only 11 years from now! Aside from the scary though that hot chocolate can have a decade long shelf life, I just wish I could get the feeling of the years beyond 2001 into my head as being normal and instead of science fiction.
