Over the weekend we celebrated Alex’s cousin’s 26th birthday. Maybe two or three years ago, we’d all be talking about new bars to check out, new music to listen to, but nowadays we are having lively conversations about health care around the dinner table. One’s 26th birthday is a BIG deal because it marks the end of coverage under your parents’ health insurance.
All this grown-up stuff just slaps you in the face one day and then next thing you know, you’re 30! ( Eeek, just 5 months away! ) A handful of my friends are pregnant. Another handful are engaged or recently married. I’d really like to go back in time, even if just for a weekend, and relive those carefree days when we’d just hang out at the mall or watch movies on Fridays nights.
