Happy birthday to me

There's never a wish better than this

When you only got 100 years to live...

–  Five for Fighting, One Hundred Years

Today is my birthday, and I hit a pretty significant number this year. But I don’t know how to be that age. Is there a book somewhere that tells you just how you are supposed to act when you reach a certain age? Am I expected to slow down, get mean, stop learning, stop having fun? Am I expected not to skydive? Then toss that book on the fire, buddy, because I don’t intend to stop enjoying one moment of living!

Perhaps it is morbid, but last night, instead of counting sheep before I fell asleep, I started counting people I knew who should have also reached this milestone age, but didn’t. Stanley. Betsy. Lane. Dave. Instead of lamenting how old I am now, I am rejoicing that I have made it this far and still have lots of living to do! So for all those friends of mine who didn’t get to hit this milestone, I pledge to continue livin’ la vida loca in your honor for as long as I am able.

Light the candles on my cake and stand back … !
