I turned 22 today.
This is the first year of my life that I am not particularly stoked about. When I was a kid, I couldn't wait to turn 13 because then I would be a teenager. Then it was 16, I couldn't wait to get my driver's license. Then it was 18 so I could be a legal adult and then I could "do whatever I want!"
Then I was anxious to turn 21 so I could buy alcohol. And I could go out dancing and have a drink at a club (not that I've actually done that yet, but that's completely beside the point). But now what do I have to look forward to? Sure, my insurance will go down when I turn 25, but gimme a break. I'm 22. Now I have to just sit back and watch the years rush passed me.
It's a little bit unnerving to know that I've finally reached 22. It used to seem so far away. 18 and 21 couldn't come soon enough, but now I just want time to slow down, now that I've earned all of my legal age-sensitive privileges.
On the bright side, my Mom took me out to lunch at a fun little Italian cafe, at which we were unexpectedly greeted (or assaulted. I can't decide which) by nothing other than butt cleavage.
This girl was asleep at the bar in the cafe. Just for the record, I felt bad for her, and was just about to wake her up and tell her that her ass crack was on display for the whole lunch crowd. Then she woke up and, believe it or not, the butt cleavage situation was much worse while she was conscious. She clearly did not care. She took a look around and then promptly returned to her nap.
That's when all of my sympathy for her went out the window, and this photo became fair game. I mean, seriously, how can she wake up and not notice that her ass is hanging out? Couldn't she feel the draft that was undoubtedly wafting down her backside? Regardless, I couldn't pass up an opportunity to capture such a precious Kodak moment.
The incident distracted me from my "OMG I'm so old" woes, and gave me quite a laugh. This, and the new purse (thanks, Mom!) should tide me over until next year rolls around, when I get to freak out about being 23. I sure do hope someone outdoes this girl on that day. I'm really gonna need it.
