Day 311 of 365 illustrations

It occurred to me today that I and all of my friends are now…grown ups.

You know how I know this? I know this because we all used to, once upon a time, have first names that we would use when talking about each other, for example, “Oh! Let’s have Sally and Fred over for a few drinks on Friday night”, “Yes! Let’s! Wonderful idea!”, or, “I hear Arthur and Mary are off to the Bahamas for their summer vacation” “Oh! How lovely!”.

But now, now we’re all The’s.

Grown up The’s.

“Oh! Let’s have The Fairbridges over for a few drinks on Friday night” “Yes! Let’s! Wonderful idea!”, or, “I hear The Warringtons are off to the Bahamas for their summer vacation” “Oh! How lovely!”.

We’ve become The’s. The’s with marriages and mortgages and children and SUV’s.

I don’t mind it, its just something I’ve noticed.
