This was actually a very educational experience for me. Seeing as i haven't been "out" in a while, i realized there are many advantages that come with my never needing to be checked age on my i.d. :
1. when the d.j. tells the crowd to put their damn hands up, you can respectfully decline. "i don't want to" i told myself. "i'm not sure what the purpose is of such a position". shenanigans.
2. i'm not jealous of skinny young girls because they don't know how to dress. seriously. i had nooo idea the dress code for 21-26 year olds was a tight black tube dress from charlotte rouse and turquoise eyeshadow. where's the fun in that? 2 words- skinny jeans. wear them before you get to the stage where you stand in front of a mirror convincing yourself that no one will notice the muffin top with the billowy blouse.
3. 12am is very late. just like when i was a child, i'm realizing that really anything after 9 is a crap shoot. i'm tired, i want my shoes off and the only thing that sounds good to eat is an ice cream sundae. which, by the way, would look bizarre amongst the tube dresses.
there you go. i'm old. i love sweat pants. dessert is more important than kanye's lyrics. and i may weigh a little more than my old i.d. reports. so wave em like you just don't care.
tempa and jonelle. audrey left before the clubs because she was scared and smart.

brooks is still my baby. may we never grow out of kissing on the lips or make believe bedtime stories. never ever.
i babysat this week. and it didn't suck. my friends know how i feel about this so they never ask. i returned the favor to julianne and spent an afternoon watching brooks learn about superheroes, how to scowl when throwing a ball and what a naughty word is.
