Nary a day goes by that I’m not reminded of that fact that I’m old.
I mean who uses the word nary under the age of 40?
The glaring truth of my many-tree-ringed existence on this circling orb was brought into clear relief (without the aid of readers) yesterday when this delightful tweet popped into view:

Surely that must be a typo, I thought.
The top show of my adolescence is 31 years old?
My adolescence is 31 years old?
I’m how old?
Still, if you want to re-live the magic of the best not-just-children’s television show, good news.
You can watch every Chairy-laughing episode on Netflix.
And don’t be afraid to turn up the volume, geezer!
