32

Ten more years and I'll know the answer, right?

Today is my birthday and I'm not sure what to make of it. I honestly didn't think it was going to have much effect on me. Last year was rough. I don't know why 31 was worse than 30. I think it was because I was suddenly OVER 30, which is much, much harder than being 30.

Anyway, I figured 32, nothing new there. I'm still not closer to 35 than 30. I'm still over 30. Right, just no big deal.

Except that today, I really, really feel old.

And in honor of my birthday, and because I feel really, really old, I'm going to make a point today of doing something really, really young.

For starters, we're having dessert for supper. I just decided.

And we're going to crank the music up too loud in the car. And we're going to dance in the living room.

I suggest you do the same. Because there are one of two options for you: either (a) you already feel this old, or (b) you will soon and you need to build up the youthful feelings while you can.

Awww. Thanks everyone. I also celebrated by staying up all night reading. And now I feel especially old. :)

Crapola! I meant to wish you happy birthday on your FB wall yesterday, and life got in my way, so I forgot. Happy belated birthday! (But you're still younger than I am!)
