you know how I hate surprises.

Life, is full of surprises.
One in particular that bugs me, is who I'm going to eventually marry.
Will he be tall? (he best be.) Will he be dark? White? Do I currently know him? Have I seen him around? Have I ever talked to him? What is he currently doing? Would we be friends now?
Lately, I've been thinking a lot about growing up and moving on.
Thinking about my life in the future. Kids, husbands, jobs, trials, vacations, etc.
I often see mom's and think, I wonder if I'll be like them, all stylish and in heels or in basketball shorts with a ponytail.
I wonder where we'll live and if my kids will be close with their cousins.
I wonder if I'll have a crazy mother in law or one I love to be around.
Will I have troubled teens or terrible twos?
Is a minivan in my future, or a sports car that smells like perfume.
Will I be 30 and unmarried but rich, spoiling my nieces and nephews, labeled as the cool aunt with the best presents?
Will my children starve because of my inability to cook. (probably.)

instead of asking more questions, i feel he is we can better explain this feeling.

Let me riddle you a ditty, it's just an itty bitty, little thing on my mind.
About a boy and a girl, trying to take on the world one kiss at a time.
Now the funny thing about, ain't a story without it, but the story is mine.
And I wish you could say, that it ended just fine.

We all want to know, how it ends.

Oh, happily ever after, wouldn't you know, wouldn't you know.
Oh, skip to the ending, who'd like to know, I'd like to know.
Author of the moment, can you tell me, do I end up, do I end up happy?

Inhale, breathe steady, exhale, like you're ready, if you're ready or not.
Just a boy and a girl trying to take on the world, and we want to get caught.
In the middle of a very happy ending, let's see what we've got, let's give it a shot.
Let's give it a shot.

We all want to know, how it ends.

Oh, happily ever after, wouldn't you know, wouldn't you know.
Oh, skip to the ending, who'd like to know, I'd like to know.
Author of the moment, can you tell me, do I end up, do I end up happy?

We all have a story to tell.
Whether we whisper or yell.
We all have a story, of adolescence and all it's glory.
We all have a story to tell.

Oh, happily ever after, wouldn't you know, wouldn't you know.
Oh, skip to the ending, who'd like to know, I'd like to know.
Author of the moment, can you tell me, do I end up, do I end up happy?

We all have a story to tell.
We all have a story to tell.
We all have a story to tell.
We all have a story to tell.
