Am sitting here in Starbucks. A bunch of girls from the local high school are talking about a friend who’s turning 20 in a couple of months.

“Twenty,” one says. “Can you believe that?”

“I know,” says another. “Nineteen sounds OK. But 20 is so old.”


Reminds me of 15 years ago, when I turned 23. My girlfriend at the time responded to my birthday by saying, “How are you 23? That seems ancient.”

Saw her last week—she just turned 36.

Man, time sucks.

  1. I remember when I was a freshman in high school talking to a friend about on of the seniors. He said (and I’ll never forget this) that “Senior are adults who go to school.”

    Perspective is an amazing thing.
