27 for 27



27.

twenty-seven.

XXVII.

I've made it to the latter part of my twenties. I'm finally at an age where people are starting to take me seriously. I finally have some life experience.

And, because my appearance tricks people into thinking that I've just entered my twenties, the age on my birth certificate has always seemed to hold a pretty significant amount of weight.

"But you'll love that you look so young when you're in your 40s!"
Says the lady at the grocery store after she cards me to buy spray paint.




I know that twenty-seven is going to be a good one. A fantastic year. I can just feel it in my bones.
