This is something I've been working over in my mind for almost two weeks now: I'm an adult.
Yes, I've held this status for awhile, but when your mom and her friend openly talk about sex in front of you (and not talking to you about sex, but just daily husband/wife type relations) you know that you've hit a high mark.
Like I said, two weeks ago me, my mom, and her friend go to see "Dreamgirls" (good movie) and on the way there mom and friend start talking about some other woman they both know who's been struggling with depression. The next thing I hear is "She said that Jim (woman's husband) has never been a really sensitive lover". They're going on about the fact that sex isn't like in the movies, and things in a guys life can affect sex, and as a guy gets older sex becomes less important, and I'm trying not to pass out in the backseat.
I thought I'd done all the 'adult check points", but this... this I was sooooooo not ready for.
And in the meantime, I'm cranky because I can't login to my favorite web forum. Firthness did some major revamping over the holidays and ever since I've been going nuts. First I could only login when I used Internet Explorer, then I could use Firefox, now I can't login at all!
GHAAA! Okay, I'm typing this and hear a loud boom from downstairs. my Mom got home and turned on the TV and the TV fell off the shelf. She's okay, how she managed to not get squashed by the thing I don't know, but the TV now has a red haze over the picture. And that's pretty much par for the course this week.
Saturday I got a letter from the village saying that I can't run a business out of my home. I have what, three girls come over for ballet lessons? But, if I don't charge a fee, then I can do whatever I want in my house.
Okay, lets end this post on an upbeat note, JenWilson is an amazing fanfic writer I came across two years ago on the Josh&Donna (West Wing) list. The other day I suddenly had this craving to reread one of her stories. You can read her stuff at http://jensfanfic.com/
Doogie Thought: Sometimes it takes a TV being dropped into your life to find out what's really important.
