This morning I woke up to a text that said "please, do yourself a favor and never get married." I later learned what it was referring to, but it really got me to thinking.
If the married people I know, say this to me, is this something I should desire? If the married people I know have to suffer through their spouse's mid-life crisis, do I really wish that upon myself? I mean think about it... I'm 31, the midlife crisis isn't that far off... we wouldn't have many good years before they got miserable. Just sayin'
I decided definitively, that no, I should not.
Friend... I'll do myself the favor!
I will just hang out and make out and then come home to my peaceful little house at night. Alone.
The only problem is that sometimes one has a desire to have children so I had to think about how I would remedy this.
Instead of becoming a cranky old spinster I will strive to become the cool aunt-like figure in the lives of my friend's children.
So, in an effort to begin this new sort of life...
I sent an email.
I went to see the boys I used to babysit every Tuesday.
We went on a walk.
We ate ice cream.
We got caught in the rain.
We had the wrong keys and entered the house through the window.
We jumped in puddles.
No one had a time out.
No kid ever gets mad at their fun aunt...
I get to come home and do what I want and sleep until I want and no one ever complains. Except me. And I don't get too bothered by my own complaints.
Plus, I wore shorteralls ALL day. If you don't know what shorteralls are then you should watch this video. If you do know what shorteralls are then you should watch this video.
