Passion! Adam was my passion in high school. With all the seriousness of life, I would love to be stupid about something again. One of my very favorite memories is a college field trip to San Francisco's Ocean Beach in college with my paleontology class to visit the rock formations. My best friend Beth went with me because we were seeing Adam Ant in Concord afterwards.
When we get to the beach, it has since become a nudist beach and the professor can't show us the rock formations because there are naked formations in front of it. And he's getting ticked. This can still make me giggle right out loud seeing his frustrated expression. Life never goes as we expect, does it? We obviously got more of an education than we were expecting that day. LOL
But back to Adam. My daughter watches the Stand & Deliver video on YouTube now and she swoons, "He looks nice, Mommy." Okay, so he's a robbing highwayman in the video, but he does, in fact, look nice. The giggly child in all of us should never go away. People get old and they get too serious!
This year, I'm 41 and I'm going to the David Crowder concert in the same venue I saw Adam 24 years ago. Gosh, that is pathetic and cathartic all at once. What do you do to keep your inner teen alive?
