Have you ever had it hit you right between the eyes that you arent as young as you used to be? It happened to me last night.
After work I went grocery shopping. And as I went through the meat department I discovered that my FAVORITE chicken was marked down on the manager special! At $3.88 for 2lbs of chicken breast, I bought all of it that they had on special! And my freezer is now stocked with dinner for a week! I could not have been more thrilled with my purchase.
At 33 years old, I still feel like a kid half the time. But long gone are the days when I would come into the office with bachelorhood stories about wild nights, wild women, wild parties, and gallons of flowing drinks. Now, all it takes for me to have a memorable night...is a good sale on chicken?!?
I remember when I was a kid, every time I would hear adults in a conversation it seemed like they discussed the most uninteresting things imaginable. Now I understand why. Because when you get older, boring things are exciting. And a good deal on meat seems like something for discussing.
So, never mind the wrinkles. Or that the clothes you wore in high school are back in style. Or the fact that sitting can somehow make your shoulder hurt. You REALLY know youre old when "going out" means to the supermarket and a great night can be found in half price chicken!
