I’m Old

Mose recent photo of me

During my week of hell at work I went through another nightmare.

I turned 30.

Unfortunately, I didn’t get to mark this milestone in the usual, drunken revelry that many of my peers would choose. Nay! I “celebrated” by taking a couple of hours off from working, sitting on the couch in my sweatpants, watching a Mavericks game and drinking beer. It was the best I could do with the time I had! Sure, it wasn’t the most memorable of evenings, but it could’ve been worse. In fact, there was a bit of a silver lining as I was so busy that I didn’t have time to reflect on the real weight of the occasion.

It’s not as if the day has any hard meaning to me, anyway. I tend to forget the birthdays and, instead, remember more of the year in general. This one’s got a nice, round number to it which brings a hint of closure even though I don’t think there’s going to be too much of a difference between my 30th and 29th years on the planet. But, as I was reading before hitting the hay one of these nights, I did sit and think about the fact that I’ve witnessed three decades of life and … it was a big deal.

All for about 10 seconds. And then I went back to reading my Batman and Superman comic book.
