Yesterday I turned thirtysomething. My birthday was a complete disaster. Two family members forgot my birthday all together…whatever. The plumbing in the whole house went nasty bad. Because of that I didn’t even get my birthday dinner…it wasn’t anyone’s fault (except that bitch fate…who needs a good spanking)….but still my birthday rather sucked.
Plus I think I am officially old now…even though technically I feel about 24 mentally…I am no where near that age anymore. There has been a definite funk around these parts for the last ten days or so…and I missed the Chili Bowl (thank god for dvrs) because I got busy shopping for lamps (not for me…for my brother and sister in law because their new house…has NO OVERHEAD LIGHTING!) and helping my brother move (my help may have been limited to going to home depot and buying 8 cardboard moving boxes…and dropping them off at their apartment…but I will never tell).
The only thing that has even semi pulled me out of my funk? Is when Craig Morgan’s INTERNATIONAL HARVESTER song came on the radio and I screeched along with it on my way back from lunch today. I don’t know why…but I LOVE that song. I think I identify with it because I am often stuck behind tractors, harvesters, plowers, and other various farm equipment on my way to and from work.
So tell me…how old do YOU think I am?
What songs pull YOU out of a funk?
What was your suckiest birthday?
