Do you know how often Kurt and I get to go out together, with no babies? It barely ever happens. We went out yesterday for my birthday. It was snowing and we drove around like we were kids. Except, there were two empty car seats in the back and we were both wearing expensive velveteen jackets. The tea I had before we left was giving me heart palpitations.
I had my camera. Kurt looked handsome. He was wearing a tie to the dollar theater. Earlier, we went to a trendy pan-asian restaurant and I had the best green curry of my life.
I took this weird picture of Kurt looking like he had fallen under the spell of an alien tentacle.
He got uncomfortable with how much I was laughing about it, so there were no more pictures of him. Just me.
A 33 year old me. I'm not sure what sort of person this Me, is. Isn't it strange to think that, if we haven't figured it out by now, we'll probably never feel like we have a handle on it? Maybe we'll grow to be one hundred years old, and we still won't know what we are.
I was forcing out into a snowstorm to watch Real Steel. There was nothing playing at any of the theaters in town, but I was determined to see a movie. Kurt didn't understand why I picked this one. I told him that they were all crap and while we were putting crap into our minds, it might as well involve robots punching each other. Really, I just thought it was funny to be able to say that I saw Real Steel on my 33rd birthday.
Things got worse overnight. There isn't any school today. I'm thinking about hunkering down and calling it a snow day. On days when I don't leave the house I go a little bit crazy. I'll be dressed with my boots tied up tight when Kurt gets home from work. I'm going to the hardware store to look for things to build. I'm going to the front seat of the car in the dark with the music down low. I'm going to drive around like I'm a kid.
