Fountain of Youth, not

I am now officially old.

Checking out at Target, the man behind the counter looked up at me and said, "You look like somebody. Somebody famous."

Knowing that I happen to look like all kinds of people, I said, "Debby Boone? Lynda Carter? Blair on 'Facts of Life?' Honey West?" And the list is longer of people I've been told I look like, but you get the point.

"No, that older lady," he said. "Debbie Reynolds."


"No, wait. You look even more like Dinah Shore."

Both dead, mind you.

I thanked him, left and quickly drove home and climbed into bed. 'Cuz that's what old people do.

You'd best not let Debbie know you thought she was dead. Ms. Reynolds is still alive and literally kicking in her one-woman shows. May we all move thyat well at her age. And I would have gone with Blair...
