. . . have a lot in common. We have the same initials (mmjw is an alias) AND we are both celebrating today! He's turned 45 today and I've turned a few years older than that. (Don't ask me why I'm using the word 'turned'.)
I used to not understand why women wouldn't tell their age. Now I do (understand). It's not that they don't want people to know that they're really THAT old, it's that they don't want people to think, 'gee, I thought she was A LOT older!'
Most folks my age try to let their birthdays go by unnoticed. At least with little hoopla. Me, I'm all about celebrating.
I've declared today MY DAY. I will do what I want, eat what I want, go where I want, and - let's see-, think what I want, watch what I want (I tivoed last night's "Tonight Show with Jay Leno" (he's so funny), and BE what I want (a bum the whole day- except for tonight when I go eat Mexican food with my wonderful family.)
It will be - is being- a great day.
P. S. I'm thinking about not using 'mmjw' anymore, but being my true self, and using 'nc' or 'nwc' . . . or even (this is daring) 'Nancy'. Ah, ..... I'll do a poll. YES! TAKE THE POLL, PLEASE .... up on the left side of the blog.
