I acted like a 15 year old on my birthday.

And I’m calling it research. (Friends who know how old I am will laugh when they read this.)

I stayed in bed until 11:30am and was the last one in the shower. I didn’t comb my hair. Just ran my fingers through it. (Is it cheating that I have braids?)

Vitamins? No way. Breakfast? Oh, well. Guess not. Got up late.

Stuffed my face with Indian buffet for brunch as I pushed the bitter stuff to the side of the plate and swallowed down the spicy burn with Coke, my first drink of the day, with no thought about calories. Don’t worry. I sipped water too in an attempt to be healthy (and appease the mom in my head).

Oh, and I made it to the buffet line first.

I got a wind up toy and smiled each time it shimmied across the table with my birthday card held high. What teen doesn’t appreciate brainless playtime? Spending way too much time liking bday posts on FB and responding to texts was a blast.

I even watched like over 3 hours of TV. What 15 year old girl doesn’t enjoy watching older people’s attempt at romance? (I know. I’m exaggerating like a teen.) I even giggled at the sloppy kisses. (hehe)

Work email? Not a chance. What’s work? I walked the dog and stared at butterflies instead.

Cake and ice cream? Yum.

And after all that, I stayed up until almost midnight talking on the phone.

Today? I return to my real life, but it sure was fun being a teenager for a day.

Now, back to writing for them.
