Golden

When I was younger and my Mom was explaining to me the concept of the "golden birthday" (when your age is the same number as your birthdate), I never thought I'd ever ever be old enough to hit my golden birthday. Twenty-six was so freaking old. It was beyond any age I had ever heard. My grandma was probably twenty-six, at least!

Man, it's only 8:45am and already I've had a super-awesome day. I got a wake-up hug from the Beloved, my Mom called early to nearly sing to me (as is tradition in our family), and I just got an email from my friend in the Navy, who--amazingly--remembered my birthday. And the sun is out and it's a fantabulous day!

Wooooooohoooooo!

If 26 is old, than at 28 I am ancient!

Have a wonderful birthday!

Having turned 32 in August, I guess that makes me from the Paleolithic era!

Have a great day and many good things in this year!

Happy Birthday! Maybe it's because I am not old (25 - hey so you aren't either) nor do I have any big-deal indicator of my age (such as, "Hey, my daughter is older than I was when I had her") but I don't really have any negative feelings surrounding "getting older." Yeah.

Apparently your parentheticals are catching.

Happy Birthday! The other day my 13 year old cousin realised that I was 23 and still studying, and probably will finish when I'm 28. He couldn't believe anyone would stay at school for practically their *whole lives*!
