Twenty-one years ago today, I took the biggest test of my life at age 11: my HIV test.

If you don’t know the results of that particular test, you haven’t been following along very closely on this blog. And that’s totally cool- often times this blog is more about laughing at life than detailing every detail of already much-detailed existence with my pet virus.

But today, on his big 21st b-day, I am stepping aside to give him the spotlight and buy him a well-deserved drink. It’s been a long, strange journey, virus, and I look forward to getting you an “Over The Hill” t-shirt in nineteen years.

Positively Yours,



I’ll probably just buy it a milkshake. “I Drink AIDS’s Milkshake!”
