The Big 4-0

Haven't been doing the blogging thing since I was on vacation last week. During that week I turned 40, so it seems a different subset of blog entries apply to me. My hair is thinning, my hairline has receded to my nose and ears (where it seems to collect), my spare tire is inflating, the wrinkles are deeper and my memory is, is ... ummm ... uhhhh.... what was I saying?

Not to worry, regarding the mid-life crisis thing, I'm was an early bloomer - somewhere around 36-37. I'm well versed in how to handle age. It's all a matter of perspective. I'm not old, I'm mature. My spare tire isn't inflating, I'm gaining weight proportionally less everywhere else. My wrinkles aren't getting deeper, I'm connecting the dots. I'm not losing my hair, I'm doing my part in focusing the press. My hairline isn't receding, I'm just being efficient as Southern California is much too warm for trapping heat with hair. On the other hand, I am contributing to global warming . I bet the scientists don't have the balding baby boomers in their equation (although I am really post baby boomer). I'm not losing my memory, I'm ... umm ... uhhh ... what was I saying? Oh yeah, it's all a matter of perspective.

Thanks to the wife for my surprise party, and for those who attended. It truly was a surprise and a good time.

Although I am more "mature" now, don't expect my blog posts to convey it :)

Ehh, you're just a young whippersnapper! Wait 'til you hit 50. I hit it going about 85 ... :-) Besides, your shiny pate isn't contributing to global warming! It's helping to cool the earth by reflecting harmful solar rays back out into space! Look on the "bright" side! ... :-)

Happy birthday, John! Don't worry, despite those 4-0 signs that affect us all, your spirit will remain young (translation:you will still do cool stuff).
