Old People

I did not realize it until tonight. We were invited to our neighbor’s kids 10th birthday party.

I realized we had arrived. That old couple that everyone likes to talk to. That old couple everyone is comfortable with. I am comfortable in this new roll. Nothing too much is expected of me. We feel good in our own skin, happy to be that couple, the elderly neighbors invited to the kids party.
