With graduation, my 18th birthday, hopefully getting my license, college right around the corner soon I have been feeling on top of the world. For once in my life I felt my age, I haven't gotten ask if I wanted a kid menu or sat in the back seat of the car in forever. Recently when we were in Boston, we went to this amazing restaurant two nights in a row. The first night everything was amazing, but the second night really hit me hard. The hostess asked if I wanted a kid menu, which we said no to but then when I received my drink, I got a kiddie cup. Honestly I don't remember the last time I got a kiddie cup. I got kiddie cups and kids menu, a lot longer then most kids, but it eventually stopped, yes I do get asked if I want a kids menu but we simply reply no. But receiving a kiddie cup really hit me hard, I actually had tears. Your probably thinking why cry over getting a kiddie cup (to be clear I wasn't throwing a tantra tantrum but tears did flow). Most people would want a kiddie cup again but for me it hurts. I'm eighteen years old, heading off to college and receiving a kiddie cups just reminds me that I'm not like everyone else, I will always be shorter then my peers and will always be different. It just tells me that I will always have to prove to people that I am who I am, but its not a bad thing. The climb may take longer then most but I will get to the top.
P.S: My fourteen year old sister got a kiddie cup too, and she didn't remember t
