Your sister started Preschool at this age. You did not. Maybe Mike and Mickey learned their lesson. Maybe preschool is why Bre is painfully Type-A. Maybe a lack of preschool is why you're painfully an idiot. Nick turned out alright. He has a wife now. Who'd'a thought, right?
You're still too young to be thinking about girls. Right now, the biggest thing you're dealing with is what you're going to be for Halloween. And, spoiler alert, you're probably going to be an M&M. Again. Just like you were the past three years. Because, damnit, Mickey can't be bothered to make any other costumes and you KNOW she's not about to buy one. "If you want it in three days, you can have it." You never wanted anything three days later. You never wanted anything three MINUTES later.
I still struggle with things keeping my attention. Boys, friends, events, shows. You will move from person to person and from idea to idea, and for the most part it won't bother you. And it will bother you that it doesn't bother you. But I shouldn't bother you with this now. I have a tendency to try to grow up too quickly. And I don't wanna do that to you right now. Enjoy being five, little buddy. Before true consciousness, before real responsibility, before ... Kindergarten.......
Take care, little buddy :-)
You in 20 Years
