i lied about my age
it hailed a week or so ago.
we were out under the gazebo.
pork loin, s.d.gib, cousins galore.
all were in attendance.
it was the best seat in the house.
the pork loin couldn't help but walk out into the rain.
then it was like he forgot how to walk and got stuck.
so trusty sean went out to wheel him back in each and every time.
i feel young.
which is often hard to do in utah past the age of 21;-)
i feel 25.
i'm glad i'm not 14.
25 must be "young" in my mind b/c today while chatting with my girlfriend i mentioned how i was 25.
except i'm not.
i thought for a minute and said to myself,
"wait, i'm not 25. i think just lied about my age for the first time."
then i heard womanly voices of wisdom in my head,
"oh honey, you're still young, wait until you're my age! what i wouldn't give to be your age darling!"
do you know the "YA-YA SISTERHOOD" movie?
"what i wouldn't give to know what i know now, but still have those thighs!"
i shrugged off the voices.
does my brain think i'm old?
why else would it spout out a lie like that?
i'm young, i'm vibrant!
and i think i'll just stay this way until i die.
don't worry, no need to tell me i'm young.
i already know i'm young,
but why did i say i was younger than i was?
it's funny really.
like doc holladay (sp?) dying at the end of tombstone with no shoes on (my favorite movie, remember?).
"this is funny."
an attitude of youth runs in my blood.
did you know my dad wake boards at 62?
he does tricks i am too wimpy to try.
which is pretty much every trick, but still, i'm just sayin...
he finally gave up heli-skiing this past year for a trip to visit us to ski park city.
we're rumored to have the "best snow on earth here."
i don't mind older age.
wisdom comes with age.
i rather enjoy wisdom.
although....i would like to fart in public someday and not be bothered about it.
i think you have to be at least 85 to get away with that...
but i'll still be "25" in my brain.
how about you goddesses???
