no spangles :: pam

Adulthood isn’t the spangly party-place we thought it would be, back when we spied on it through red plastic binoculars from across the gulf of age and autonomy; it can be a downright trecherous land, where sometimes our compatriots fall into pits of despair, and there’s little we can do to help.

In a way, this fact is indicative of all that disappoints me about adulthood: when I eat nothing but desserts for dinner, I really pay for it later.
