Tonight Robyn, Lane, Kristin, Eryn, Jenn, Howard and I went to go get some Thai food from Cooper’s Landing, which for those of you not familiar with it, is like 10 miles outside of town, in the middle of butt-fuck nowhere. (Which sounds much more exciting than it really is)
I got to talk some with my good friend Robyn, and she will be leaving for 6 months for England. Which is exciting and all, but I am going to miss her with a fierceness. She is so good to me.
Anyway, the food was great, the lady that runs it is some little old Thai woman (what the hell is she doing in the middle of Missouri?) and even “through we ah clozed,” she served us anyway. It makes me miss my Mom…I haven’t lived at home for 2 years. I was telling Craig, God bless women and their domesticism...Lord knows what would happen to all of us without some maternal figures to feed us and light citronella candles around us occasionally.
After said Thai, we walked around the River some and watched the fireflies. Ah, summer, transient and fragile. Coincidentally, it was the summer solstice today, and also a full moon. This should mean something to me, but me not being a fucking Wicca freak, it doesn’t. Except that the days are going to get shorter and autumn—the harbinger of a slow and cold death—will be at our doorstep any day now.
Ok, so maybe I am being a little dramatic, seeing that summer has just begun, but today was my last day of being a teenager. Please, I need some reassurance. Is it all downhill from here?
