I am not young

It is Friday and Fridays are for fun.  I recently went to the local garden center to buy more herbs. I grow them in the house all winter and outside in the summer.  When I got up to the register to pay for my herbs, I told the clerk that my basket held “parsley, sage, rosemary, and thyme.  I thought maybe I would get a smile or something but it was clear that she did not get my reference to “Scarborough Fair” by Simon and Garfunkle.

After that, I had the song in my head all the way home. I think the person who rang up my order was in her late teens. I am a few decades older than that. I don’t consider myself old but I am definitely not young. I was in grade school when Scarborough Fair was released.
