Forever in Junior High

When I drive through the neighborhood and see a line of cars that are all at someone's house for a party, there is a small part of me that wonders why I wasn't invited - even if I don't know the people or the house.

We are going on a family ski trip.  There is a small part of me that thinks I should have a different ski "outfit" for every day we're on the slopes - even though I now know how much ski "outfits" cost.

I still get nervous when I meet new people that they won't want to be my friend - even though I now know that everyone has insecurities.

There's a part of me that would give my right arm to be able to have a jumbo cookie and Diet Coke for lunch - even though I know the nutritional value of this combo is... zero.

I still leave my purse sitting in the restaurant booth as though the most important things in it are notes from my friends, flavored lip gloss and Primo body spray.

Can anyone confirm to me that I suffered a head injury in junior high that retarded my ability to mature?

You're funny:) I'm with you---I will never crave a salad for lunch---just a coke and either lunch room nachos or that giant warm chocolate chip cookie. If only I had known then what a tease my metabolism was being. Dang 30s...
