Having just turned thirty, thirteen days ago, all I can think is: shit, considering the amount of pain I'm in, the medications I have to take for some freak blood disorder and my general malaise-- if this is what thirty feels like I don't even want to feel thirty at all. I can't even imagine what I'll feel like when I'm forty!
I want to feel 18 again. Actually I'd rather feel like I felt when I was 26. That was a great healthful year. I could still put my legs behind my head and tie knots in the stems of cherries.
