I was driving home the other day when the junior high was letting kids out of school. I watched a group walking home, talking and laughing. I saw a couple, holding hands, with that lost-in-love look, and I wished that I could go back and be young again.
Then I saw a boy in a van with his mom. He looked miserable. I remembered that I was mostly a geek in junior high, and that I didn't have a boyfriend until I was a senior in high school, and that junior high pretty much sucked.
Katy Perry can be young forever. I like being a grown up.
