Old And Tired
Wolf went to his first pyjama party this weekend. Well, he was in PJs anyway, none of the grown-ups was wearing one.
The party made it painfully obvious that we’re not young and hip anymore. For starters, we were the old farts there. Two guys were discussing how they were nearing the big 3-0. I’m well underway to the big 4-0, so I pretended to be invisible.
Apart from having the baby with us, you could easily spot that we were the only parents there. All the other people were engaged in lively conversation, while we concentrated on breathing, nipping from our glass and trying not to fall asleep. Not that we didn’t enjoy the party; it was nice to get out of the house for a change and mingle with friends.
But it’s very clear that we aren’t students anymore. We’re officially old gits.
