Reflections on 32 years



-I'm almost halfway through my 30s now. *sigh*

-40 really scares me. 40 says I'm really old now, and definitely not young by any stretch.

-Chocolate cake has never tasted so good. Even when it's cheesecake.

-Can I trade my 32 years in for two 16 year olds?

-No, I'm not having a mid-life crisis.

-If I knew then what I know now...

-You're only as young (or old) as you feel. Somedays I feel 22, some days I feel 52.

-It's just another day (day 11,688), but now that I've recently discovered I'm also part French, it makes me just a little bit more bonded to Bastille Day.

-The Girl says the above piccy of my shadow looks like a dildo.

32 is only 20% of the way through your 30s, thankyouverymuch. Let's not rush things, k? Some of us still have to turn 32 this year. ;-)

It was a joke back in college, one of our housemates was a year older than the rest us, and although we were 21 and he was turning 23 that year, we joked that he was "already about halfway through his twenties".

32 seemed a long way off at that time, but we survived. ;)

I just want to say that you totally suck ok? Cuz I just turned 40 a week ago today and it bites. Not a nibble, you know, all sexy and taunting.... it bites like an f'n zombie trying to suck out your brain. So until you can feel my pain for real, cry me an f'n river.

And I mean that in the nicest possible way, of course. :-)

And yes, your shadow resembles a dildo with a rubber on it. Or a bottle nipple....

You can't be middle aged at 32 ... that means you'll only live to 64... that's not good. ;) Besides, your 14 years younger than I am and I ain't old yet.

Oh my,

Did you say something?

I was too buzy looking at the shadow of a giant... with a condom....

Ishat starts whistling Detachable Penis.

@Petra - You really made me laff with your comment, you crack me up! Of course I know you mean that in the nicest way! I feel your fortyness pain which is why I'm dreading it so badly.

@Monkey - I'm glad you don't feel old at that age, I hope I'm the same way when I get there.

@Fire - I miss King Missile, whatever happened to them? Crushed under the weight of the one-hit wonder, I suppose, which is a pity. Great group from NY.

I don't know. It is a funny song. Not too many penis songs out there. Not to many penis songs get air play out there.

Hahaha I read this post on my feed reader, I loved the dildo shadow comment.

It looks like you have some use in your old age then, lol!

@Claire - gives new meaning to "head"!

It was funny how it came out whilst at camp. The Girl blurts it out in front of her mom and Mom goes "Jess, what do you know about those?". I say "Gosh, she's almost 30 years old, so she knows a thing or two." Mom says "But she's still my daughter, she's not supposed to know about things like that..."

I should also mention her maiden name is "Willey".

Claire said...

Now that is funny :)

Although my mum is the opposite, she gave me 'Willy' after all!lol.

Redbeard, it sorta does look like one.

32 is NOT old! 40 is NOT old! 50 is NOT old! You'll have to ask DaddyP about anything after that....
