Remember when you were a child and you thought “when I grow up, I can do whatever I want?”
Adulthood. It’s when you get do whatever you want! It’s when get to buy whatever you want!
When my husband and I were newly married, I bought something I had always wanted, because I could. I bought a 12-foot trampoline to go smack in the middle of our yard. To me, jumping on a trampoline = bliss.
When the trampoline was delivered, I was giddy! My husband and I promptly set it up in the yard and we proceeded to jump. And jump. We jumped for two hours straight. And then.
Ugh. We got the worst headaches. Too much jiggling our brains, I guess.
It was the saddest realization: I was too old to jump on my beloved trampoline. We took it down, boxed it up, and shipped it back.
So much for adulthood.
