Super Granny - Defender of Justice:

I have been guilty of looking at others my own age and thinking...surely I cannot look that old.....
While waiting for my first appointment in the reception room of a new dentist, I noticed his certificate, which bore his full name.  I remembered that a tall, handsome boy with the same name had been in my high school class some 40 years ago.  Upon seeing him, however, I quickly discarded any such thought.  This balding, gray-haired man with the deeply lined face was too old to have been my classmate.
After he examined my teeth, I asked him if he had attended the local high school.
"Yes," he replied.
"When did you graduate?"  I asked.
He answered, "In 1957."
"Why, you were in my class!" I exclamed.
He looked at me closely and then asked, "What did you teach?"
