So, Happy 2011. This is a big year for me! You guys, I am turning 30 this year! I will be in my thirties...which brings me to the title of my post. Picture someone sitting on their couch at 11:30 on a Monday morning wearing purple pajama bottoms with little yellow chicks, blankie on lap, goofing around on her laptop. I know you are cheating and picturing me but I think you get the point...surely the person described above in not a grownup!
There is a letter from our mortgage company on the counter, I can't believe those morons at the bank approved a loan for a couple of kids! I mean I know that lenders at the time were giving out loans like candy but seriously, what were they thinking?!? I look down at my wedding ring and laugh! Ha. What kind of minister lets two kids get married (two and a half years ago!)? Don't even get me started on the dress-up-play-thing sleeping in her crib right now. They sure do make these dolls lifelike nowadays!
I am totally turning into a grownup. How the hell did that happen? Or maybe I should ask, when will I feel like this growup life is really mine? Maybe on my 30th birthday I will be magically transformed by the Grownup Fairy, which none of you other adults have told me about because at the time of your transformation you were sworn to secrecy. Yeah, that's it. It is the only logical explanation, clearly. Well Grownup Fairy, you sneaky minx, I am on to you. The way I see it you have been running around blindsiding people for years! Giving out grey hair and saggy boobs. Well not to me, I will not be duped. In lieu of your traditional gifts I would like the following things for my transformation: First, the continued ability to sleep past 6am...no one needs to be up at 4am, no one. Second, thick shinny hair like a shampoo model (preferably brown but I am open to reasonable alternatives). Lastly, leave my boobs right where they are! Seriously, the Puberty Fairy was stingy so hands off and show some mercy.
Thank you in advance Grownup Transformation Fairy, or whatever it is that you would like to be called. I am looking forward to your visit! For now I have to go...my Lily poop and pee dolls needs a diaper change.
