Look In the Mirror

Have you ever been guilty of looking at others your own age and thinking, "surely I can't look that old?" Here's the story:

A lady patient was sitting in the waiting room for her first appointment with a new dentist. She noticed his DDS diploma, which bore his full name. Suddenly, she remembered a tall, handsome, dark-haired boy with the same name had been in her high school class 35 years ago. Could he be the same guy that I had a secret crush on, way back then, she said?

Upon seeing him, however, she quickly discarded any such thought. This balding, gray-haired man with the deeply lined face was way too old to have been my classmate, she whispered. Hmmm ... or could he?

After he examined her teeth, she asked him if he had attended Morgan Park High School.

"Yes. Yes, I did. I'm a Mustang," he gleamed with pride.

"When did you graduate?" she asked.

He answered, "In 1967. Why do you ask?"

"You were in my class!" she exclaimed.

The balding and wrinkled-looking dentist looked at her patient closely. Then he asked, "What did you teach?"

REFLECTION: It's so easy to see the faults in someone else, isn't it? We see their wrinkles and gray hair. More so, we see all the "specks" in their eyes but we are not so quick to notice those flaws in ourselves.
