Last night, I had my first dream about my birthday coming up. I still have another whole month to get through, but I’m really thinking about it even more. In two weeks, I will be able to buy my own lottery tickets. I have been waiting to do that for three years. I even told my mom that I was more excited about that instead of wanting my first alcoholic drink. Then I had my first dream and it was surprising to say the least. It wasn’t exactly my first dream I’ve had, but since it’s getting closer and closer to my birthday, I can see these dreams popping up a lot more.
I have a plan for my birthday. My mom has that day off and I wanted to scratch off two things off my bucket list. Which are going to Barnes and Nobles and go to Starbucks. It would be a day of firsts for me that’s for sure. I need more books badly. I’ve been looking up different books and have a good idea of how much they cost. I’ve looked up all of the different beverages at Starbucks. I think I have it cut down to two frappuccios. The Mocha Cookie Crumble Frappuccino sounds amazing, but yet I think Peppermint Mocha Frappuccino sounds good too. I’m going to have to get my mom to look at the list so I’m not the only one getting something from there. If I’m trying something new, she’s doing it too. I think it would be torture enough to watch me have my first alcoholic drink without her.
My mom told me yesterday that we were going to Red Lobster to eat on my birthday, because they have alcoholic drinks. I’m not going to lie. I get stomaches when I eat seafood (most of the time) and having my first alcoholic drink would probably sent me over the edge. I also don’t want to be drunk and have to pee about a hundred times a day. It would be my first so I am very worried about getting sick and throwing up in my mom’s car. That would not be a good idea. So I’m thinking we should go eat at Steak ‘n Shake instead. Last summer, we went to St. Louis for a Shriner’s visit. We didn’t get to finish my meal, so I kind of want to be able to enjoy that meal. Doesn’t sound that bad. That and we never get to go there, and since it’s my birthday and I won’t be able to get Mexican food that day (unless I beg) then I think we should go to second best here. (:
