It must be around twenty years plus since I first heard the term Generation X. The time period is now clearly defined but it was not originally. I thought I was perhaps borderline Gen X, on the cusp so to speak, tenuously, pretty close, near enough.
I told R I was Gen X and he believed me and has for many many years.
But the internet is not always your friend. Today R looked up the year I was born and discovered that I am a baby boomer and not even close to being Gen X.
The shame I feel is beyond comprehension. Pass me a self sharpening Wiltshire from its scabbard.
