know, it shouldn't be a big deal. It's only a number. It's really no
different than 29. I'm still younger than all those 40-year-olds out there
driving around in mid-life crisis cars.
But 30 is different. It's a dividing line between youth and adulthood.
I've lost my GenX status. I'm out of the demo. On surveys I have to check off
the next box under "Age" the one marked "30 - 45." Forty-five? Jesus,
that's ... that's positively middle aged.
That's not me. Yet.
But it's not all that far away, either. I'm turning into an older young
adult. I rotate my tires regularly. I do my taxes without being reminded.
Sometimes I find my eyes drifting to the "Homes For Sale" section of the
classifieds. And this is a big fucking deal I can actually imagine
I sorta like those thoughts, too.
