Oh Good, Another Milestone

I turned 40 at about 7:30 this morning. Hence the 1940's pin-up girl to the left. Classy and semi-pornographic! A few days ago someone asked me how I felt about this approaching age. My response, which I seriously doubt is original, was that it beats the hell out of the alternative.

A friend sent me an email today saying that "40 is the new 30" and then going on to say something along the lines of it really must have sucked back in the old days when they felt this bad at age 30. I don't really feel all that bad, but I do confess to a creeping knowledge that I am never going to feel as good as I did when I was 27. Or that night when I turned 30 and my wife took me to a strip bar.

By the way, I showed my wife this little atrocity of a blog, so all three of you, (and that might be generous), who still stop by here, say "hi". Hi honey.

Anyway, I'd say I'd write more here, but I'd be lying. I'll try. I'd really like to finish the 50 states thing someday. Maybe by the time I turn 50. or I could just get a Twitter account and do it all in one day. 24 states in 140 characters.

My co-workers are buying me lunch today. Which is cool. Honestly, though, the only reason I didn't take today off was that they'd kill me if I deprived them of the chance to get ice cream. Of course, I'd do the same if they didn't show up on their birthdays and deprived me of a chance to get ice cream. Seriously, don't get between me and mint chocolate chip ice cream. 40 or not, I will knock you down.

Hope all is well. I'm going to go take a nap and then yell at the neighborhood kids to get off my lawn.

Hi Honey!!!!

And you, too, Limpy.

Happy Birthday, old man.

I'll be joining you in six days.

I like to say that you're only as old as you feel, and I never made it out of my teens.

Let me get this straight. Your favorite color is royal purple AND you like mint chocolate chip ice cream? You really are gay, aren't you?

Kidding. Sort of.

Happy Birthday, buddy! Sorry I missed it. I'm not doing so great remembering blog birthdays since the baby was born. Hell, I can barely remember my name most days.

Hi honey. You'll be happy to know your husband always speaks highly of you!

PT, I would prefer to think of myself as a dirty young man. Non else does, but I prfer it that way.

Callie, hope the milestone went well. You look good for 18.

Q, thanks. Oh, and don't woory about me ordering Little League trophies from you this year. Doesn't look like that will be an issue.

DW, as always, your phraseology leaves me in awe.

KG, you mean I have to do this again in ten years!?!?

LB, yeah, those states are definitely a millstone around my neck.

Tysgirl, thanks for the shout out. And yes, your bloggin has definitely fallen off in frequency since Sydney Michelle showed up. Cool middle name by the way.

Zoe, thanks.

Cedar, well, there's ten years to look forward to anyway.

Trop, thanks.

Rhonda, my boss said that to me the other day. Wait, you're not her are you!?!?!?!

RW, thanks.

OK, so your birthday is not the ONLY thing I've missed in the past week, so don't go thinking you're anything special, young man. Wait, strike that. Don't go thinking you're anything special, NOT young, man.

Hope you got your damn ice cream, and also a "proper" birthday gift from Honey!

(Hi Honey! Sorry to throw you under the bus like that, but seriously, it's the man's birthday. You kinda have to put out.)

Next time can't you twitter or something to let me know you've posted something? Geez. I hate being late to the party.

PG, I belly-danced. It was as bad as you're imagining it.

E, I was hoping for koala porn, but the kangaroos were hot too. Sicko.

LS, thanks.

Don't forget to wear your sleeveless t-shirt and wave a rolled up newspaper. Otherwise, kids these days will not take you seriously.
