It happened slowly, but somehow over the years I started preferring NPR over other radio stations, and PBS over most other TV stations.
It happened so slowly that I didn’t even notice it until recently – when the lineup on TV changes and I found myself frantically searching for the PBS stations.
I’m obviously no longer hip nor cool (and quite frankly odds are I never was) – but I think it also means that I’m more ready for parenthood than previously thought, because isn’t it the job of parents to like shows that are intolerable to the young ones?
Now I’m just curious as to the exact onset of this uncoolness – was it brought on by pregnancy or was this something that happened independently? One wonders…
