Well today is Tuesday, September 9, 2008, and I am writing about nothing, kind of like the old Seinfield shows. Has anyone ever wondered about time and how weird it is? Doesn't it seem like we were really young and stupid just a little while ago, and yet, it's taken forever to get to this point? I'm the baby of 6 and have always felt that I was the youngest in a crowd. That's not so much the case now. I recently went to the doctor's for a check up and there was a young male assistant who was looking at my file and said, "Happy late birthday."

"Thanks." I said.

"Is it true that when you get older you don't care about your birthday so much anymore?"


Like a dagger in the heart, he viewed me as, "older." Wow, he considered me older. Funny, he didn't even realize his question mostly pounded me and was not as innocent as he truly meant it. Rather, it was an affirmation of the true facts, yes, I am older - but I'm not old yet!
