A Non-Newtonian Fluid

My birthday is fast approaching.
my mom keeps asking what I want.
I am more concerned about the age number.
Yes, I know... it's not a big one.
YES, I KNOW that a lot of people are older than me...
But I also know that I can never see past a 3 month period of time so looking back 24 years is a frighteningly long stretch of time.
I'm old. I've been old for a long time. I've already had my own little midlife crisis... its name is Texas and I remember it fondly, but with a big blush.
age is just a number when you're 16 and you want to be deemed old enough to run with the big kids. But when you're 24 and start realizing that no one is going to step in and stop the test anytime soon... well... age is a fuck of a lot more than a number.
