Before we fell asleep at a very late (for us!) one o'clock this morning, we talked about how in elementary school, our teachers talked about the year 2000. At the time, it was 15 years away, forever in kid years. We thought about how we'd be 22 years old by the time the new millennium arrived, and how 22 was ancient. Now, today is the first day of 2009 and it's been 24 years since that moment when our teachers captivated us with thoughts of adulthood and driver's licenses and cars and kids even. I always thought adulthood would feel different, but I'm so happy it doesn't. I am kind of disappointed though that we don't have flying cars and hovercrafts like "the future" most certainly promised. Ah, well, at least we're not all wearing neon.
Happy 2009, friends. I hope it's stellar.
