Happy Birthday to Me

I recently had a birthday.

I'm almost 30 now, and I finally feel like an adult. I'm probably one of the few people out there who feels a little excited about turning the big 3-0 because it will mean extra double takes for anyone who finds out my age.

For those of you who don't know me in person, I look like I'm 12 years old (except for all my gray hair), and telemarketers always think I'm a woman.

But back to my birthday. My wife asked me what I want to do, and I told her I just wanted to sit. We are usually running around like crazy people every day of the week, so sitting is rare.

And do you know how good it felt?

It changed my life.

I'm sensing an encore in the near future.

Happy Belated BDay to you! Getting what you wish for on your birthday is always such a treat. Now, just wait until you're actually 30. Baby face or no baby face you're going to notice changes... ear hair might be a first! : ) (sorry I had to crack myself up for a second!)

You weren't even a deacon when I got married.
Happy birthday :)

Thanks for the well wishes.

Shorty: I am now officially scared of turning 30. :)

Carrot Jello: Don't feel too bad. I am the youngest of a big family, so my oldest brother is in his early 50s. So, we could easily be siblings. And it's all about being young at heart anyway, right? That and chocolate cake. It's all about chocolate cake.
