11/07: Adult Behavior

When did I become "responsible"?
I have to ask because it wasn't that long ago that I smoked, drank, and dated musicians that rode Harleys. I've been to Sturges. I love Las Vegas. And there was this one time in Utah...but I digress.
Since I started Spark, I quit smoking. It interferes with my fitness program, is entirely too costly, and the appeal of it fails to, well, appeal to me. I'd rather have lung capacity for running than a menthol.
About every other month I go out with the girls. We drink and dance, but it has gotten to the point where I won't drink if we don't dance. I only want to when I can burn 'em as I drink 'em.
I'll leave the musicians on Harleys for another day.
Maybe it's getting older. I'm not twenty five any more and there is something to that. As I edge through my thirties what I want is different. In my twenties, I wanted to be wild and brash. I lived a crazy life and loved it, but now I'm tired of all the things that used to be fun. I'd rather accomplish things and I've learned the value of earning as opposed to getting. I've become (gasp of horror) an adult.
