In less than an hour I turn 20 years old. I know, it's shocking. I have been alive for 2 whole decades.
I have seen all kinds of shit. I've lived through parachute pants and jelly shoes. I lived the last few years of when children were allowed to be children. I've seen the rise and fall of celebrities great and small. I've seen my country change before my very eyes, as have I seen my family. People have died and new people were born. I have changed a lot and been through a lot, such as childhood trauma (including having my parents give me terrible haircuts.) I had headlice for the entirety of my childhood. I've been bullied for the entirety of my childhood also. I've grown up (and across) and I am the person I am today because of one particular characteristic that has remained pure.
My silliness. I've always been silly. I've always been annoying. I've always been giggly. I've always found immaturity funny and I'm told that's why people like me. They like that I do funny dances in the street. They like how I feel free to smell strangers shoes. They like how I make them laugh.
People will describe me in different ways as I get older. At 20, people will call me crazy. At 30, people will call me a bit mad. At 40 people will call me scatty. At 50 people will call me dotty. At 60 people will call me barmy and at 70 people will say I'm senile. But the truth is I am and always will be just silly old Mrs Jarvis. Crazy Cet. and Scatty Katie.
I like to think that I bring a little bit of silliness into people's lives. That I make them smile. That I give them the confidence to let go a little bit and enjoy life.
So raise an imaginary glass if you will to silliness. May it never leave our hearts. Because there's no point taking life too seriously, we'll never make it out alive anyway.
