Out of the Blue

Today is Ash Wednesday, so hats off (literally) for all who are celebrating. This means I forgot yesterday was Shrove Tuesday. So I missed Mardi Gras, and more tragically, Pancake Tuesday, as I love pancakes. Well, I blew my chance to get plastic beads for flashing my goods, but at least I can still get some pancakes, so I'll have to content myself with that.

There is nothing wrong with, or new about, people in their 20s being shell-shocked about hitting 30. You probably did it.
I realize this wasn't addressed to me, but I wanted to comment on it. It's possible Kxmode didn't experience this, every one is different and has different perceptions especially about the nature of themselves. Speaking personally, I never was surprised or "shell-shocked" about reaching any age. But then I'm an odd bird, when I'm asked my age I usually have to take a second to calculate it. Since my pre-teens when I stopped have birthday parties I simply started ignoring my birthday and my age.

That said, I would agree with Beamer that this type of personal reaction to reaching "mile marker" birthdays is not uncommon.
