So today I turned 30. I remember a few years ago when my birthday actually meant something to me, other than the changing of my numerical age. And somehow, some way, things have changed. I'm not excited about turning a year older, nor disappointed by that fact.
I don't really drink or party like I used to. The societal highlights of my birthday this year include the fact that gays can now get married here in Iowa, starting officially today. So my birthday is now synonymous with gay marraige. Didn't see that one coming!!!!
And a coworker of mine called me this morning to wish me happy birthday. He warned me he would call and sing it, so to let the machine get it. Then he had his 17 or 18 year old female cousin (whom he is the caretaker of) call and leave a message about how great 'last night' was......yeah, the look on my wife's eyes: PRICELESS!!! Gotta love a coworker who knows how to stretch one's sense of humor to meet up with mine!
Yep, so today, I think I will get offline now, watch a coupel movies and vegetablize myself into my chair, and hang out....then I'll take a nap, because I have to work tonight!
