A little bit wiser?

31 August 2012

Recently I've been noticing a disconnect between my personal opinions and those of the younger generation around me. Have you experienced this?

For example, yesterday Mr. Collier and I attended the first college football game of the season. Two S-E-C teams battled it out in front of our eyes. Sure I was wearing the same adorable cotton black dress, brown belt and cowboy boots as the younger XX's (girls) there but I didn't get to think about the game until about 5:30 p.m. when we were walking to the stadium whereas the other XX's had been partying/tailgating since 11 a.m. 

I'm at the point in my life where I'd swap a $1 beer for a nice $12 martini with a sidecar. Where standing outside for 4 hours partying gives me a headache and a waste of time. I worry about dehydration and keeping my skin moisturized. I take a few Advil as a prophylactic before concerts or other loud environments. That's right I'm maturing. And I'm ok with it. How do you deal?
