I have a very weird week happening.
On Friday, I turn 24 again.
It’s going to be a very uneventful birthday since I will be alone, miles away from my family, for my entire birthday.
Being a grown-up sucks, doesn’t it?
(The pity party will commence on Friday, but not a moment before then!)
Today, I’m (once again) in Newport Beach.

New PT has been, of course, a factor in my overabundance of Newport Beach time lately.
I don’t know what he did to me last week –
But whatever it was, it was wonderful.
Seriously, something good happened and I didn’t even know it at the time.
There was a big POP. Or maybe it was a SNAP?
There was something.
(Dr. Google has yet to issue me a medical license. Is it my fault I don’t know the difference between a pop and/or a snap?)
For that matter, I’m not even sure what body part it was that did something,
But something did something.
It hurt. (!!!!!)
Wow – I feel a lot better than I have in possibly forever.
I think maybe my arm has been dislocated for six years and he snapped it back in place??
(Every medical professional who has ever cared for me is currently shaking their head and wishing I would just stop typing.)
I want to thank all of you who suggested “blog names” for New PT.
There were some great ideas. (If you’re interested you can see them here.)
In the end, someone who actually knows New PT told me I was crazy for even having to think about it.
“What do you mean?” I asked – as always, a picture of pure innocence.
“He’s a clone of Paul Newman,” said Anonymous Mutual Friend.
“Paul NEWMAN?” I answered incredulously.
I immediately pictured an old Paul Newman because I’m too young (!!!!!) to remember a young Paul Newman.
New PT definitely does not look like Old (now dead?) Paul Newman.
But alas, we have Google for important inquiries –
And what do you know?
New PT (aka Fake-Paul-Newman) looks exactly like Real-Paul-Newman did when he was a Young Thang.
Well, except Fake-Paul-Newman is in living color, not in black and white. He also has a more current hair style.
Omigod – !!
Did Paul Newman leave offspring in Southern California?
Because I’m thinking he must have.
(Or perhaps Fake-Paul-Newman is a result of a top-secret Real-Paul-Newman cloning project?)
In any case, Fake-Paul-Newman is a little too long to type, so New PT will just be called Paul Newman.
P.S. Paul Newman seems to be his happiest when he’s casually snapping dislocated body parts back in place.
