I've been thinking of this very thing lately--though it takes me weeks or months to get it formulated in my brain enough for a post.
There are some first time experiences that I look forward to and some I hope to never encounter. Some of them are in my control and some I can't avoid. I would like to experience getting married--I guess I have some control in that.I have no desire to experience a first time drinking alcohol, getting drunk, and the hangover that people talk about. I can totally control that. I also have no desire to experience the the first time someone in my family dies. But it's going to happen and I can't do anything about that.
Those are some deep thoughts. Thanks.
