The biggest day of the year! No, I'm not talking about that little Inauguration thingy that happened last week, although that was nice too.
I'm talking about my birthday. (Speaking of which, the little honey above graced the calendar during the month I was born. Google image search rules!)
Yes, it's not just ANY birthday...it's the big five-oh!
Believe it or not, on Tuesday, barring some unforeseeable calamity, of course, I'll have officially occupied this planet for a half-friggin'-century!
Some people might panic or become depressed by their impending step over the threshold to middle age, soon to be followed by the inevitable slow downward progression of decrepitude, and eventually ending in death, but not me! No sirree!
If anything, I embrace my impending oldness! I welcome the supposed wisdom that accompanies the vast sum of life experiences I've had. I even look forward to qualifying for a membership in AARP and spending hours watching QVC in search of discounts on hard-to-find but useful household items!
...ah, who am I kidding? I'm plunging headlong into the least desirable advertising demographic and it sucks.
On the plus side, maybe the telemarketers won't bother calling so much anymore.
Yup, that's me...
Good ol' "Mr. Glass Half-Full!"
