I am I am. I'm glad I am.

I got a haircut today. Pretty nice, I mean, its cool.

Wore my “Speed Racer” shirt because it makes me feel young and its cool because there is that movie coming out.

I show up at Winn Dixie, picking up some beer. I say to the checkout lady, “Its cool that I don’t get I.D’ed anymore”. She says, “Well, you’re what, 40?”

I about lost it. On the inside I was crushed. I played it cool, but DANG, I am still in denial about 30 and here I am being pegged as 40.

    40 is the new 30 I hear. Of course, I don’t remember being this decrepid at 30.

    When you have a kid and they say “You and your grandfather there” to your kid, then that will hurt. I’m expecting to hear that soon myself.

    Haven’t gotten that one. I also haven’t bought beer lately either. What I did get when I had just turned 31 was the girl behind the counter wanting to know if I was in her high school math class last semester. Yeah, maybe as the teacher!

    People are stupid.

    Those are words to live by.
