I’m a twin.
And one of the best things about being a twin, is that every year I get to celebrate my birthday with one of the people I love the most in the whole world. That’s pretty cool, huh?
So in just a few short weeks, my twin, Lee and I are going to be celebrating our 30th birthday together. It’s hard to believe that we are turning 30. We still act, think and in our minds, look, like we are in the lower end of our 20′s!
People keep asking how I feel about turning 30 … and if you had asked me a year ago I might have said something like ‘Why the fuck do you have to bring that up !?!?!’ in a kinda shrill annoyed voice … but now, in my mellow old age, I’m actually completely at peace with it. It feels right. It feels like the start of something new.
So in honour of starting something new, one always needs a few new things … so you asked for it, now here it is – my Birthday Wish List!! Apparently these are becoming quite popular amongst friends and family as I’m infamously hard to buy for… And I don’t believe I’ve ever felt as much joy seeing a little black box as I do when I see one of the Net-A-Porter black boxes. My happy place!
But in complete truth … despite all the Wish Lists, all I want for my birthday is to share a cider or red wine with the ones I love the most and reminisce about years ago, fantasize about years ahead and be right in the moment. Because as much as I love stuff, possibly a bit more than the next person, it really is just stuff. But the Posse … well … that’s irreplaceable. True story.
Here’s to dirty thirty … and spending it with Lee Lee and the Posse.
Peace & 3-0
