Did I Go to College to Hang Out?

Aquamarine (2006) = 4/10. It was cute. Shut up.

April's Shower (2003) = 2.5/10. I thought I was going to settle in for a nice make-believe wedding shower story. Nope. It was more like hilarious first 45 minutes at a normal wedding shower followed by not-so-hot lesbian action.

This week I was on the phone with a girlie girl discussing, what else, girlie girl things when the girlie girl says to me:

"I can't wait for you to have kids so you can stay home and we can hang out all the time."

And you know the look I got on my face that immediately followed when she said that--the one where I smile slightly, raise my eyebrows, and move my eyes at a medium pace from side to side while looking up at the ceiling, chin remaining level.

I didn't have the heart to shatter her Game of Life dreams, though. How am I supposed to break her heart by telling her that I have no intentions of reproducing before the age of 30. And my thoughts are still up in the air about my desired work life thereafter.

So, I simply said "Yeah, that would be fun for a bit."

I'm not sure what kind of la-la fantasy world most chicks reside in (actually, I do, but I find most of those worlds to be silly and unreal), but right now this girl lives in a world that doesn't involve babies. Well...not directly anyway.

Aquamarine is a big hit around my house!

Yeah, but your kids are under 10. And I'm 2.5 times that age.

I don't plan on staying home with kids ever, so you can continue to hang out with me! :)
