I though 50 was the new 30 was the new black was the new lime green

I sent this one to a woman friend who's turning 40 today. I guess 40 is a big deal. I got my shoes shined on the Michigan Avenue Bridge in Chicago on my 40th birthday. I didn't stay out late on my birthday that time. I waited till the next day and then stayed out all night.

But anyway, 50 isn't as big a deal as 40 and as long as you remember that clock only stops for one reason you'll be ok with getting older.

Good point in that last sentence. My new motto. Maybe I can have that sewn into a jersey or something....hmmmm....

BigGreen: eh, 40+ ain't so hot. I was going to comment on the Friday post that it's all relative. Which is great for the weather, but sucks for getting older. (Joking, joking...)
