I figured he was going to ask me for some gum (as he always does) or the time or where we should get dinner later, but the question he asked wasn’t anything like that.
Husband, kids, house, minivan...to a college girl, those are all things that exist in some vague future version of life. They're on the horizon, but still much too blurry to make out or even think about seriously.
I know I have mentioned this a few times, but as twenty-somethings, we’re still trying to figure it all out. We’re in this crazy limbo stage where we’re kind of kids but kind of adults.
