7 girl, you'll be a woman soon

there are these Moments. teeny tiny splinters of time when i can almost sense myself on the cusp of perfectly pulled-together, thoroughly responsible, totally rocking, "we're all adults here" womanhood. then- before i've really even had a chance to revel- the Moment fractures. and i am me- getting off at the wrong train stop and racing ten blocks north in hell heels only to wind up alone and kerfuffled in an elevator, with a stocking south of my knee and a skirt that's pulled a major u-turn, giggling over the fraud i'm about to perpetrate when i step off the elevator and impersonate a perfectly pulled-together, thoroughly responsible, totally rocking, "we're all adults here" woman. thank heavens for elevators or the jig would be up.

Are you paying not so subtle homage to my blog title of a few days ago with your "we're all adults here" inclusions? If thats the case I'm tickled pink, er, navy blue.

oline said...

sí, sir pirate the pink. but are we really all adults here? i'm exceedingly 12.

I'm 27 pushing 11. now where's my damn transformers....

oline said...

in random group business: please please please, pirate, i beg you- talk croftie into seeing blades of glory. i need to have a moment of being a college boy.

i'll do what i can, but i know crofty-pants isn't the biggest ferrell person out there. she liked him in stranger than fiction but loathes his anchor-man type stylings. like i said, i'll do my best but i'm only (*counts on his fingers*) one man.

oline said...

ah! but you're a man with a good solid seven or eight nicknames to his name. which averages out to you being the equivalent of roughly 2.3 people ranging in age from 11-54.

(don't make me mention the forthcoming Great Oline Outside On The Hottest Day Ever In History Pitchforking Sacrifice of 2007. in light of that, aren't i owed a figure skating ferrell flick?)

i remember having a drink with my mother on my graduation from college. she asked me if i felt adult. i told her that i did, sort of, but that i wasn't quite the woman i wanted to be yet. she said "well, neither am i, and i've been at this woman business 21 years longer than you have."
so there's food for thought.
