This isn’t one of those, “I’ll always be 29 posts.”
I am 36 today and I love it. The title is a reference to a night 10 years ago, wherein I made a complete ass out of myself in front of several dear friends and my future husband who at the time was just a guy I thought was trying to get in my pants and then dump me. (I had le grand chip on my shoulder.)
Anyway, I had decided back when ZZ Top She’s Got Legs was the newest song on the radio that I would grow up, get married, have three sons, kick the husband to the curb and get a job that let me wear stilettos and jeans to work. That night 10 years ago I wept as if my world was ending.
“I didn’t do it.”
“Do what?” they asked me with tender concern.
“Any of it!” I wailed.
“Of what?” they murmured as they encircled me.
They were incredulous. I had a great job, a hot and doting guy and a world of possibility ahead of me.
I cried and sniffled (it was actually the big, ugly kind of crying…snorfling?)
I had expected 3 boys.
I had planned on divorce.
I had no idea what I needed. Here’s to unanswered prayers and happily ever afters. Thanks for sharing in mine.
So cute! And saucy!
It's been fun getting to know you a bit better via twitter.
I've been a Tramp fan since I moved upstate a few years ago and stole your jacks promo a few years ago at the NORI's.
Happy birthday, mk
You were right about the "wanted to get in my pants" part.
