2007 – 1973 = 34

How the hell did that happen? I could have sworn like two or three weeks ago I was just turning 30 and it was only a year or two before that I turned 21. If it wasn’t for the fact that I am happier now than I ever have been before — and I have felt that way pretty much every day since I turned 9 or so — this whole 6/26 thing would really bother me.

    Happy birthday! Iam turning 35 on July 2nd. Where the hell did that one come from and why was I not notified that age would creep up on you?

  3. Imagine what all of the rest of us feel like to not only being turning 34+ but also have kids that seem to be aging even faster! Have a happy birthday my friend.
