Conversation with the 11 year old who has an obsession as of late with
wars and the military...
Arryn: Mom who all do you know that served in Desert Storm?
Me: Well Papap did, he went to Kuwait, and Catherine's Dad went to
Germany to help out there.
Arryn: Well who do you know other than them that went over there?
Me: Well that is about it, dad's friend Doug I think may have went.
Arryn: Did any of your friends go?
Me: Well no Arryn.
Arryn: But I thought you had friends who were in the military, didn't
they go over?
Me: Arryn, Desert Storm was in 1990/1991 I was in the 8th grade during
Desert Storm and so were most of my friends who are in the military.
Arryn: Oh, wow you're really old mom.
Um yea that's all I needed to hear into my 32nd year of life.
I am thinking of the line from Deanna Carter's song Strawberry Wine,
which came out around the time I was 19 or so, it goes....
"I still remember, when thirty was old."
I clearly remember thinking at the time, yep I don't want to think
about when I will be 30!!!
