I cannot remember how I spent our 21st birthday but I remember 21 years ago very well. It was a beautiful day. I woke up late and ran to my 9 am class. Paula was waiting for me. She was looking for me. I was late and she was concerned. She looked relieved to see I had made it to class. Frowned at me and asked why I wasn't in the 8 am class. I explained simply, 'I woke up late.' She tugged at my wet hair and again frowned as she looked at my no-make-up face. She questioned with her eyes 'Why?' My response, 'Late.' We spent every moment on that last day together.
