Happy Birthday to Me

Birthday 09 Most of the cards I received were variations on a theme: "Man, you're old, ain't ya?"

You know, "Congratulations, you're officially too old to die young."  Thanks.

I liked this one much better: "Distinguished, yet youthful".  Inside, "It's a look not everyone can pull off."

Even if it's not true, I like it.  Everybody has to grow older, but you don't have to grow up and be old.  The Lost Boys had the right idea.

    Not the movie, “The Lost Boys”. The Lost Boys from Peter Pan in Neverland (the story, not Michael Jackson’s ranch). “I’ll never grow up” was their maxim.
