9 what's with these homies dissing my girl?

there was this moment on friday night- when i was sitting with jmills, us continually swiping our eerily similar bangs out of our eyes, where the gentle breeze seemed determined they stay, and drinking kool-aide and hard liquor on her back porch in the shadow of wrigley as we expounded upon the subtle difference between hard mingling (boo!) and soft mingling (yay!) and a cover band played the greatest hits of our high school years three stories below.

there was this moment where 27 felt a perfect fit.

shortly thereafter, on the walk home, a triumvriate of drunk-ass depaul boys attempted to bust some kind of move by the johnny depp set. if pulling a girl's ponytail can be called a move. and i don't know that it legally can.

i only know this:

i'm 27. and a roving band of teenaged boys pulled my hair.

Did you turn into the Mean Green Bean? If not, then you should have, and pummeled them as well.

next time that happens, you should find a grown up and tell on them. the other kids might call you a tattle tail, but sticks and stones my dear oline...sticks and stones.

oline said...

but aren't we the grownups now?

i'd like to think not. now that we are living longer, is it acceptable to think that we're not as grown up as society wants us to be? i'd like to say that i'll be a grownup when i hit 30, or my mid-30s; i haven't decided just yet.
