    On Engagements and Getting Older
    Over the holidays one of my friends from highschool got engaged to his longtime girlfriend. Last night a group of us got together at their place, made fondu and drank a lot of wine.

    I wonder when it was that we all grew up. I was looking around the room last night, all of us still dressed for work, eating fondu, drinking out of some really nice wine glasses, two sets of us engaged, two in long term relationships, sitting in a nice Upper East Side apartment. What happened to the days of Natty Light in red cups? To the random hook ups? To the terrible dorm rooms and bad apartments? Or better yet to the days when we were still living at home and needed to hide the beer and cigarettes?

    It was an odd feeling last night. On the one hand, it was wonderful. It felt great to be in this place in our lives and still be such a tight knit group. On the other hand, it felt a little scary. Like, oh shit, we're supposed to be grown ups now. When the hell did that happen?
