On being 40

Yes, it is true; on Friday I slipped into my fifth decade. Everyone asks how I feel but of course I live life one day at a time so there wasn’t anything explosive about the day. Friday was a good day, for which I’m glad. My girlfriend took me to lunch, I had dinner with my buddy and got to drive his Porsche Boxster (which was very cool), and when I got home my girlfriend and her daughter had decorated my house with flowers, balloons, and cupcakes with candles. Having a three year old sing you Happy Birthday is wonderful! It’s all good, for sure, but it is weird to say, “Yes, I’m 40.”
