except it’s my TWINty-second birthday, so it wasn’t normal.
not normal: disrupting lakeside tavern with belly laughter on the patio,
introducing myself to josh (our waiter), him hearing the wrong phrases out of my mouth, & claiming to know his girlfriend (who i knew by name except i don’t know her),
gulping diet cokes down every 5 minutes, getting a second strawberry birthday cake for the other birthday girl (meredith aka our waiter loved us),
more dying laughter and girl talk
