Happy Youth Drink

The point to remember, as you tipple off into the years past what one can call “youth,” is that even if those joints are creaking, it’s more of a roll than a jump out of bed, and staying up past midnight seems superheroic–even then, you can still capture that happy youth feeling by being silly, laughing it up, wearing a feather boa and not caring a hoot what anyone thinks, having the posse over for a series of pictures with fake mustaches, and always remembering that “youth” isn’t, after all, a term stuck to a specific date, but rather one attached to a specific state of mind. Having a few Happy Youths doesn’t hurt, either, when remembering how fun it is to be young.
