How old are you now?

I'm thirty-four today and still relatively early to bed, early to rise. It's hard to judge where you should be in life after school. Some of my friends are married with children. My life hasn't changed much since I decided to write full-time five years ago. Still, there's a purity to brainstorming and finally finding the right words for whatever project that lets me know this is where I should be, what I should be doing.

I don't know what's on tap for today, but yesterday my brother treated me to lunch at McDonald's. We both had the Angus 1/3 Pound Chipotle BBQ Bacon burger. Here's to simple pleasures.

UPDATE: My brother, mother, and I had lunch at Cafe Baci in Westbury. I had the Cavatelli Tutto Funghi.
