I’m super excited to join The Girl Who Knows as guest editor. This month’s theme was play, so in this post I got super personal about having fun. The truth is — once I had kids the fun ended.
But I got it back! And you can too.
Here’s the story:
Back in the day, I was known as Fun Girl. I knew how to have a good time, and found my fun no matter where I was.
I spent a lot of time in the clubs, the ones that went well beyond sunrise. It was me and a group of friends dressed up in our fishnets and skull boots who danced our hearts out to a killer DJ throwing down fresh beats, that became my biggest source of entertainment.
But there were also more everyday experiences that escalated into a load of laughs β like hanging out at Great Falls by the rocks then jumping into the C&O Canal for an evening swim. Or climbing up the flagpole of the high school just to see if it could be done. On one New Yearβs Eve, I even came up with a little song titled Having A Good Time and got the entire party to sing along with me.
These were carefree days so everything felt like play. Until something happenedβ¦
