I grow old … I grow old …I shall wear the bottoms of my trousers rolled.

  1. I worked a 12 hour shift today.
    Well, 11.5 because my saintly co-workers cut me loose at 6:30 instead of 7:30 because I drew all the wrong cards all weekend.
  2. (In the way that one can do, in the ICU.)
  3. And I hustled home.
    My husband is in India for work.
  4. The big dog did not pee & crap on the floor tonight.
    But he did last night. Dogs get worried after 13 hours sometimes. So you clean rugs after other, 12.5 hour days (plus commuting time).
  5. So I had time to hustle off to a birthday gathering!
    Of a good friend, featuring another good friend, and nice acquaintances.
  6. And drank beer! And ate pizza!
  7. But then I had to decide.
    Would I go see the Oingo Boingo tribute band? If you did not grow up in Southern CA in the 80s, that makes almost zero sense. That's fine. But a part of me said, GO!
  8. I did not. Instead, I list.
    In the dark living room. With tired eyes, sore hips, and faint regret.
  9. It is 10:40.
    I grow old.
  10. 💀🌺💀🌺💀
    Let's have a party, there's a full moon in the sky...
