They Say It’s Your Birthday

I turn 40 today.

And now, for your enjoyment, I’d like to compose a 10,000-word essay on what it was like this morning to wake up and be halfway to 80, complete with witty anecdotes and a large sample of my newfound wisdom about no longer being in my 30s, which I gained overnight.

Just kidding.

Yes, I agree. It would be more enjoyable to devour one’s own foot than to read that.

Coincidentally – or maybe not – I did see a story today published in London about a government study concluding that men in their late 30s and early 40s are more miserable than at any other period in their life.

Well, then it’s a good thing I have the chiseled body and cheery outlook of a 19-year-old.

I do have a serious question. If I’m 40, why did I wake up this morning with more acne than when I was 14?

It was nice talking to you. I’m now off to go purchase some Clearasil.
