Age Is Just A Number…

…until you get old, right?

I was browsing over on The Huffington Post when I came across this story about Kurt Cobain.  He died 17 years ago today.  Wow.  I remember the MTV News Break announcing his suicide.  I was 10 years old. 

He was 27 and married with an infant when he took his own life.  It was so very sad.  So tragic.  I used to wish I lived in Seattle or was friends with Angela on “My So-Called Life” just so I could hang out with Jared Leto.  I loved the idea of grungy boys wearing ripped sweaters wailing on their guitars.  Some things never change. 

Vividly remembering something that happened 17 years ago makes me feel old.  I was old enough to understand what was going on, know Nirvana’s music, and have an opinion, albeit a less informed one.  Wow.  I’m 27.  Some days it sounds scary to say that.
