So I turned 25 this week.

& nothing happened.

Does turning a quarter of a century really mean that birthday magic just disappears?

I spent the majority of the day inside airports and airplanes. Which, normally, would make me overjoyed! I love airports! I love being alone in airports! Unfortunately, it’s uncouth to tell the strangers around you it’s your birthday and ask them to do things for you because of it.

But my sweetie greeted me with mimosas when I woke up & I ate three bagels for breakfast – so cheers to 25!

    25, I remember it well… April it was… I opened the fridge to grab a beer and the Tabouleh I had made earlier. Then it hit me in the face as if some pro boxer was hiding in the veg compartment! I realized that there was only a single way ticket to this train ride. So far, the company in this runaway carriage is good and the scenery keeps my appetite wanting for more… Ride on, right on! Happy Birthday! 🙂
