well, that didn’t last long, did it? (my goal of showing up and writing something here every day this month)
oh well. let’s just see how often i can show up this month then.
this morning in our way in to work, lovely and i were talking about something i found amusing, to which i replied, “it was a hoot!”
she then quickly commented about how she’s amused by my antiquated words – “it was a hoot?!?” she replied, laughing.
“your mom’s a hoot!” i quickly retorted.
i defended myself later on twitter by saying “owls are in right now, right?”
all of that got me thinking about how i am getting older – it’s little things like this (saying an old phrase) that just reminds me of it.
i’m still trying to wrap my mind around the fact that some of the people i hang out with weren’t even alive when nirvana’s nevermind hit stores. still trying to remember that there are friends who do not recall there ever being an east germany and a west germany. still grappling with the thought that i know people who entirely missed the 80s.
i absolutely adore my circle of friends. they range from a few months old to their late 80s / early 90s. each one teaches me so much about love, about life, and about how beautiful all of it can be.
life’s a hoot.
currently listening to (and cannot get out of my head, for that matter) – “Hurt” – Johnny Cash covering NIN (it gives me shivers every time i listen to it…)
