Shouldn't these be the BEST years of our lives?
We should be out and about, roaming the city, discovering the latest trends. Eating gourmet ice cream and drinking whatever hipster coffee is IT at the moment. We should be at the bars, drinking craft beers, laughing and having a merry good time with our friends. We should be celebrating all the milestones together - children, our wedding anniversaries, a job promotion. We should be planning our trip to Vietnam in October. We would have been at the baseball game tonight, rooting for our team, enjoying our gharadelli ice cream sundae. This is our youth. We were suppose to enjoy it together. We were suppose to grow old together!
This year is the best year for our friends. Wedding. Babies. But it's the worse for us.
I went to sleep that one night....and my life changed forever.
(This last sentence was copied from the book "the year of magical thinking" by Joan Didion where she repeatedly writes, you sat down for dinner...and life as we know it ends)
