The big day is approaching. Unfortunately. I’m at the waddling stage of pregnancy and our budget is limited. I face two options.
1. Accept the reality of being older and go (by myself) to all of the NYC places that I’ll never visit if I keep waiting for another interested person to come along. That would mean spending a day at the Tenement Museum (Cool Dad asks, “Why go there? We have first-hand experience living in one.”), the WTC visitor center, and the Museum of the City of New York.
2. Deny the reality of being older by doing something only a person in their 20′s would be likely to do. I haven’t quite figured that part out yet. This option could be fun, but also sad and uncool due to the rather large belly and limited physical capabilities.
A long time ago, back in Florida, Cool Dad turned 30 to the tune of Dark Latin Groove and 30 of his closest friends in a reserved restaurant with dance floor. He even had a “30 Years of Eric” tribute, with one dance song from each year of his life. I don’t like the spotlight, so I’m not wishing for that kind of thing, but so far my plans seem pretty lackluster, don’t you think?
So…what did you do or what do you plan to do to celebrate your 30th birthday?
