On Extra Syllables.
March 21st 2010 marked the addition of one syllable (and year!) to my age – 27. I had gotten used to the sound of twenty-six quite early in our relationship, but I have a funny feeling that twenty-seven (that extra syllable! BLAST!) is going to take quite a bit of time before I feel buddy-buddy with it. So until then when asked my age, I’ll probably sound a little something like, “I’m eigh – no, twenty-tw – no, wait, I know this – twenty-seh – I can do this – twenty-seh-ehv-vehn. Yes. Twenty-seven, all four syllables of it.”
I don’t have any hang-ups about getting older or being closer to thirty – most of the time – but I’ll tell you what, that extra syllable is a real doozie.
And in non-birth-anniversary related news, I FINALLY have a .com! It’s up and I’ve even imported all my posts to it, but it’s so plain and dorky looking (think the early days of myspace page customization…egh) that I’m not sure if I’m ready to unveil it yet. But let me say I am so excited about it that I smile to myself every time I look at it – plain dorkiness and all. It’s on blog-world, oh it’s on.
I hope spring is in full swing for all of you because I don’t know about you, but I’ve been dying for the sunshine.
