My roommates and I love to play dress up. A lot. For a while we even had one themed dress-up day a week; for example, superhero night (I was Arctic Warrior Woman), dead poets night, rockstar night, kids day, etc. So the other day when a friend of ours was leaving for an overseas trip, we jumped at the chance to become the laughingstock of everyone in the Beach building parking lot see him off in our own special way.
So there I stood, waving at the bus, dressed as a hippie-gypsy with tattoo sleeves (no, fake ones silly. What kind of girl do you take me for?). Beside me stood upside-down girl and pregnant-hillbilly-pirate-ninja-turtle girl. And I thought to myself, are grown-ups allowed to do this? Because if not, I just don’t see how adulthood and I are going to get along.
And with my 20th birthday just five days away, that could be a bit problematic.
