Sunday Musings: "Forever Young... Or Nah."

In light of my sister entering that all-too-crucial time in her life where college acceptance letters begin piling up in the mailbox, I realize that my ten year high school reunion is fast approaching.

I'm not attending, of course.

But, it's there. Lingering. Like any song from Frozen. Playing itself over relentlessly in your head.

In the words of Sally Albright, "You can't take it back. It's already out there."

Now, as I live by the holy book of "When Harry Met Sally" and choose to quote it whenever I see fit, relative or amusing... I have two choices here. I can either be Sally Albright and irrationally writhe in the idea that I'm 27 years old and I'm pudgier than I once was and a lot more cynical and finally past my goal of marrying Justin Timberlake and there's no going back because "it is already out there..."

OR, I can take the far more casual, sarcastic, and denial-furthering Harry Burns approach:

"Oh geez. Call the cops it's already out there!"

I'll be fine. 

I'll be swell. I'll be great. Okay?? I'm still hip! I know allllll about "selfies" and "or nah" and the now deceased "Flappy Birds." OKAY?! And knock wood, knock SO much wood: I still haven't grown my first gray hair. I know that time is fast approaching...

So, here's a video for all of you beautifully aging people looking back on your past. It's basically beyond genius.
