The Grass is ALWAYS Greener

When I was 9, I wanted to be 10, because I would enter the realm of double digits.

When I was 10, I wanted to be 13, because... who doesn't want to be a teenager, right?

When I was 13, I wanted to be 15, because it was 75% of the way to 20 and old enough to be taken seriously.

When I was 15, I wanted to be 16, because I could drive.

When I was 16, I wanted to be 18, because I could go to college.

And when I was 18, I wanted to be 21, because I could drink... legally.

When I was 21, I wanted to be 22, to be out of college and on with life.

When I was 22, I wanted to be 23, so that I could be in law school, once and for all.

At 23, I wanted to be 25, so that I could be finished with law school and actually make a living.

And at 25, I wanted to be older, just because I wanted to know what I was doing.

At 29, I wanted to wait until 30 to get married.

And now, at 36, I'd rather be 13.
