aging gracelessly

December 5, 2011

finals time = maximizing procrastination.
which means it’s time to write a blog post, right?

in less that two weeks,
i will be twenty seven years old
(twenty seven? fuck i’m old).

this is the age my mom was when she had me.
i’ve always thought it’s cool that, on dec 18, 2011
i’ll have been in my mom’s life for as long as i haven’t.
(does that sentence make sense?)

kinda weird, right?

it also makes me think of those big life goals we’re supposed to reach:

i’ve gone on about it before, so i won’t again.
it’s just one of those times where still being in school
and watching your bank account dip under $100 every week
makes one question if they’ve taken the right path.

in moments like this,
i turn to my alpaca namesake
who is a constant source of smiles here at bgs central.

he’s an unusual alpaca, so i’m told,
(though what constitutes a “usual” alpaca, i’m not sure)
and apparently very friendlythere is no joy in the world like knowing
that, in less than a year on this earth,
the alpaca that shares my name,
is already having three-ways.

my work here is done.

    He’s an ambitious one for only 4 months old. I’m glad he’s doing you proud. (And no, your mom still can’t kidnap him. She can visit anytime, though.) He makes me grin everyday – as do you. Happy early birthday!

    You just made me nearly choke on my carrot with that picture!

    You made me laugh out loud!
    I’m 57 and still aging gracelessly. I never could figure out how to do anything gracefully.

    Like father, like foster son????

    (Hope neither of you throw your back out. As Mick and Keif sang, “What a drag it is getting old. . .”!)

    Thanks for the giggle, I needed that. I especially like how they all look smiley…

    There’s like no words.

    You said it all. And the comments got the rest.

    I think you don’t have the usual life goals. And that’s good. Wouldn’t it be horrible if we all came from the same mold? I think not.

    Are you bottom, top, or filler? That is the question.

    I’m almost twice your age and still asking myself those questions. ❤

    If you think 27 is old, try 50!
