I, Chris Coleman, Am Old [VIDEO]

Close Encounters
YouTube

An innocent event last night made me feel really old.

Last night, the wife was reheating a large plate of mashed potatoes for dinner. The amount of mashed potatoes was so large and fashioned in such a way that I said it was a “Close Encounters” amount of mashed potatoes.

The wife didn’t get the reference.  And now I feel old.

I was born in 1976. In 1977, Steven Spielberg released the movie, “Close Encounters of the Third Kind,” starring Richard Dreyfuss and Teri Garr. It’s won numerous awards and it was even deemed, “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant” by the United States Library of Congress. In the movie, Richard Dreyfuss’s character becomes obsessed with aliens after having a close encounter with a UFO. In one of the more famous scenes in the movie, he fashions a large plate of mashed potatoes to resemble Devils Tower in Wyoming — it’s an integral part of the movie.

Anyway, my wife, who was born after 1977, hasn’t seen this “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant” movie. And now I feel old. Or at least I need to update my pop culture references.
