Today I am 50.
I share this day with Oprah and Thomas Paine.
I am not happy about turning 50.
Then again it's almost nice to get it over with finally. The dread leading up to this seems kind of silly now. And it's over, I can't dread it any more.
I am broke. I mean BROKE. My son wrote me a birthday card, my stepdaughter wrote me a card, and my wife is baking me a cake. I might splurge on some steaks if I can find some cheap enough.
I wish I could drink, but one of the reasons I stopped is because my 40th birthday party was such a debauch. Enough's enough, that sort of thing.
I wish everyone a happy day on my behalf!!!!
Drinks for all my friends! (just not me!)
