I had a crazy experience last night. I felt young… then felt really old.
My husband and I have turned Monday nights into date night. It just really works for us, and its a time to reconnect each week.
So last night, we went out to dinner… and I got carded ordering a beer.
“I love you!” I exclaimed to the server with a laugh. Totally made my day. He carded me!! I rode this awesome high from it all through dinner.
Afterwards, we went to check out this night of music I’d been hearing others rave about for months…
And I felt really, really old.
Median age seemed to be about 25, and it was packed. The music was great! And I can see the appeal of it for many. But I kept thinking, “I did this in college. I’m not in college anymore.”
My husband and I left going, “We’re going to go be ‘old married folk’ and head home.”
Ah, it was fun. And I’ll probably go again sometime. But man… I guess I just got reminded that as fun as it is to feel 21, I’m totally happy being 31. I am right at the age I should be.
