Am I that old?

My Comp II class is reading “Greasy Lake” by T.C. Boyle for Wednesday. Part of their journal assignment is to listen to Bruce Springsteen’s “Spirit in the Night” and compare it to the story.

At the end of class today, one student asked me who Bruce Springsteen was. And I laughed. Then, I heard a chorus of “Yeah, who is that?” from several other students. I stopped laughing when I realized they were serious.

How can they not know who Bruce Springsteen is?

    Yeah, they do that to me too sometimes. I can’t remember who or what I mentioned just last week, but my night class was glassy-eyed and clueless. Ugg.
