I turn 60 today.
No one else is throwing me a birthday party, so I'm throwing myself one -- on this blog. (Thanks for coming.)
The question that baffles me is, how'd I get so old? I dunno. Time just sorta went by. Honestly, I had very little say in the matter.
Had I had any choice, I would have stopped those dastardly hands from their relentless journey around the clock; but that was beyond my power.
It actually does seem like just yesterday I was graduating from college. I seem to be having all the usual cliched thoughts: it all goes by so fast. Seize each day. Et cetera.
But I hate giving voice to those thoughts because they make me sound so old.
So, I guess I should just shut up.
Party's over. You can all go home now.
