growth spurt




So the other week I was queueing up for the bus and stood behind a couple of gangly teenage punk boys. I was reminded of my nephew (one of them, yes, I have a few, I just don't keep in touch with that side of the family). Tall, lean, ate like a horse, and never gained an ounce. And I thought about how cool it would be to have the appetite and the metabolism of a teenager. Except then you have all those crazy hormones pinging around. And I already have some hormonal shit going down (again, but I'll spare you the story right now). But I've been so freakin' hungry lately, it's really bizarre. I don't know quite what to make of it, except I think I'll probably be making trips to the second hand store for roomier clothes....

I think sometimes your body does that when it's healing something major, like a broken bone....

ohhh yeahhhh....well that could definitely be it! Being sick for those few weeks, too.

memo to self and others:

don't break any (more) bones!!
