    Wonderful! Oh, the days of longing and yearning for something hiding just behind the horizon. We didn't even know for sure what we were reaching for.

    There lies the magic, often the reality paled.

    This was brilliant! In our Puerto Rican culture, it's all about the "Quincenera" -> Sweet 15. =) So, we don't wait! Most likely cause we're just damn impatient to party! =)
