Humble Age Pie

Instead of studying for my test tomorrow, I will tell you all a story.

As many of you know, I work in a hospital. The other day I was taking care of a patient who looked much to young to be there. I checked out his birthday and noticed he was born in 1972. As I can't multiply 8 times 7 in my head, I most certainly couldn't figure out how old he was in my head but I knew that if he was born in the 70s, he was to young to be there. I was born in the 70s, and I am not about to grace the hospital as a patient. So anywhos- a few hours into my shift, while I was in his room, I glance at his age...36. Wow! He is so OLD...much older then I thought he was. This went through my head for about 30 seconds before I realized that 36 was just a measly 6 years older than I was. I have had friends marry guys that much older. I would marry a guy that much older. He was not that much older then me. And that is when I tucked my tail between my legs and shrunk off to lick my wounds. Because I am almost in my 30's...which is no big deal...until you think of being 36! And yet, even that doesn't sound as old as it used to.

Dude, we're going to be 30 in JULY. Crazy. I totally feel like I'm still 22. But aren't the 30s the new 20s? Something like that...
