stupid cold, growing old

Thursday night's antics have left me basically bedridden. I have a terrible cold or something- I'm learning towards strep throat, throw in $1 drinks with the girls at an old haunt and you have trouble.

I started to feel a tad bit better yesterday and took advantage of the slightly improving health, but took it a little too far by breathing second hand smoke, trying to talk over blaring music and getting too little sleep. However, a night on the town was well worth it since I was getting stir crazy.





Last night has made me think
about growing older and possibly wiser. I have more fun inching closer to 30
than I ever did in my "prime". I'm much more at ease with myself, care less
about what others think and generally enjoy being me, imperfections, quirks and
all.

I get a kick out of watching the
younger crowd and it's dynamics, remembering how I was in my early 20's. Back
then, going out was just as imperative as a job. I was a slave to my cell phone,
fun and getting ready. Now, when I head out, it's purely about good times with
good people, not drinking and superficial interactions.

Sucks that you're still sick. I hope you get well soon. This cold cant last forever... can it?

It's a good thing you went out and had some fun though. You can't let your sickness beat you, because then the germs have one. And when the germs win, anarchy ensues.

@Scott: This cold must be some sort of pay back or something- I can't shake it.

No anarchy going to happen around here!

I know exactly what you mean about what it meant to go out in my early 20's. It was SERIOUS!!! A little too serious. Now I take about 10 minutes to get ready and don't take how many times I get hit on as the equivalent of how good my night is going. lol Yeah, glad those days are over.

@Arnetta: LOL, it was very serious!
