So, we’re drinking beers and my boyfriend’s got the whole party hanging onto his every word with a story about the one time he was road tripping across America with 12 of his mates.
My brain is reeling: must. interject. with. hilarious. comment. to. show. how. awesome. I. am. and. that. he. made. good. choices. being. with. me.
Of course, my mind is blank. The brain bank is in the red and I’m running out of time.
All of a sudden, the connection from my brain to my mouth malfunctions and I start talking:
It kind of reminds me of the time I was at university and joined an all girl acapella group. Ah, good times.
*The party looks at me and collectively thinks*
Ummmm, that’s Pitch Perfect, you loser.
I don’t always have the funniest story.
I don’t always land the punch line.
I don’t always have the wittiest comment.
But I do have a sense of self-importance known only to my generation which gives me the balls to share it with you, all over the internet.
Forget about a recipe for success. There's. No. Such. Thing. At least, that's what Elizabeth McKenzie – lover of boys, jump-starter of her own career, and all-around average woman – has discovered. This is her coming-of-age story. The one where she transforms into the loud-mouthed, semi-successful, semi-hot, self-important adult she is today.
The 30-Somethings is a collection of stories and thoughts broken down into three acts*: babes, bods and business. You'll laugh out loud as Elizabeth exposes the phenomenon of the internet #ladyboss, throws down tips on how to make boys think you're hot (even if your body is shaped like a fruit #nojudgement) and reveals the romantic fairytale of eye-banging her boyfriend for the first time.
Part memoir, part self-help guide, The 30 Somethings is all honesty.
* Suitable for those with very short attention spans.
