40


Today is my 40th Birthday!...yes, I'm officially over the hill...just what hill does that expression refer to anyway?...I guess it's better to be over the hill, then under it, no?...and is this an American expression, cuz we sure do have some lame ass ones....oops, digressing here.

It's funny, as a kid I thought that 40 meant that you'd be knocking on Death's door...what a silly little shit I was!

I don't feel "old"...honestly, I feel the same now as I did 10 or 15 years ago. Oh sure, my hair's thinned out a bit, my waistline has grown, my ass isn't as high & mighty as it once was...but I'm healthy, I'm loved, I've got great friends (especially those of you that are reading this), a beautiful family, and above everything else, I can still drop it like it's hot!

I guess not feeling my age is a good thing, as I'll probably need to continue to work for another 40 years or so...Social Security my arse!

All right, enough of my babbling...Do me a favor and save your Viagra jokes, your snarky comments about senior discounts, spare me the AARP membership remarks, and pass me a slice of birthday cake already!

Happy B-Day! You know, I've been getting stuff from AARP since I was 21, so you really souldn't feel slighted if they sewnd you something; they just don't have an accurate database.
This guy and this guy are both over 40, so you're in good company.

Greg said...

40 is the new desperate.

Nah, just kidding, at 44 I have to say it doesn't feel any different to me than 34, except I am in better shape now. HA! So there!

happy belated day!

you don't look 40 at all! you must have that kylie gene in your DNA that keeps you from ageing.

I can't remember the name of it, but the protein begins with a b and ends with an x.

Christian said...

I am behind on the times since I am on vaca. Happy Birthday, Chris!
You pop that coochie like a whipper snapper. It doesn't matter if it isn't as high and tight as it use to be.

Mark in DE said...

Happy (belated) birthday! I'm like you, I don't feel my age (44) either, and fortunately I don't look it, so its all good.

Mark :-)

D-Man said...

Well Darling, I hate to say that it's all down hill from here - speeding toward decrepitude and senility. That's what over the hill means.

I hope that makes you feel better.
