I’m not 42 today. I’m just not. I’m 40.2. That’s right, from here on out, I’m going to age like software. Next year I’ll be 40.3. That way I can be 40 all the way up to version 50.
I know, it’s a dumb idea but I’m just not ready to get older and at this point, I’ll do anything it takes to trick myself in to thinking I’m still young and vibrant. Not that I’m old and dull mind you…
Man, there used to be a time when I was all about the birthday. I used to have a birthday week. Then is was a birthday weekend. Now it’s just a moment of silence. I kind of don’t feel like celebrating the occasion anymore.
I am very attached to my fish. I brought them here all the way from Chicago in the back of my car. You should have seen the poor things when I got here. Do you think fish get car sick?
I love my Ray for his generous gifts. He so thoughtful and sure knows how to make a guy feel special on his 40.2nd.
I’m going to assume this year’s version 40.2 is going to surpass all the great features of 40.1. The only problem about these new versions is that you don’t find out what’s in them until they happen. You can only guess, hope or make it happen. Hey, here’s to making it happen!
A quote from my favorite Shirley Horn song Here’s to Life:
May all your storms be weathered
and all that’s good get better
Here’s to life
Here’s to love
Here’s to you.
