Oh who knows.....call it what you like
Hello. This is going to be a mind making up exercise. I have a problem. It's huge........gargantuan even. Almost too much for one person to bear. Are you ready for this? My parents want to throw me a 40th birthday/you're divorced.......again type party. You'd think I could find something else to not be able to sleep over. I guess I'm lucky that's all I've got to fret about......."Dude.....my parents want to throw me a party, can you believe the audacity?" I'm looking forward to turning 40.....I've been telling people I'm 40 for the better part of a year already anyway. It does seem weird to be 40.....I don't feel 40, still feel about 26........29 was a good year also, although that could be attributed to the end of decade divorce phenomenon. Have you ever decided that you were just not going to use a form of punctuation? I have....won't use colons or semi-colons. Anyway, as far as the divorce issue, I was thinking about it the other day and had a certain feeling of accomplishment come over me......there's something to be said for doing it, not once but twice, that well......I don't know.......kind of makes you feel freer or stronger or less likely to really care what the neighbors think about your armpit high lawn or when you get the blank stare over some perfectly logical statement. Maybe it just makes you weird? So anyway, I've been stewing over telling my parents no I don't want no stinkin' party and just saying ta hell with it and just giving them a list of every person I've ever met. Well maybe not every person.....hell why not?
