Ah, but now you're the answer to "life, the universe, and everything"!

Yes, but without the question, I'm kinda lost... ;-)

Yeah. It's...surreal. And becomes increasingly surreal with time. People we first met as infants are now driving and voting and stuff. Holy crap.

Remember the baby that Mike and Heather brought with them that one time we had dinner with them in 1992 or 1993? That baby is now going to SDSU. o.O

But... You're still awesome, right? And the "answer to life, the universe, and everything"?

And you are not old. Trust me. 42 is the new 21. (okay, that might be me bs-ing, but it sounds good, right?)

If anyone really asks, you can point out that you're old enough to know better and young enough to not care ;)

Heh. Maybe so. The sucky part is that my body can't keep up with my brain. (Then again, that's almost always been the case...)

bwahahaha!
I'm trying to figure out how I got to be 53...

I still feel youngish, no matter what my knees say; and the body isn't having quite as much trouble keeping up with the brain as that seems to have slowed a little as well. But it's still good...

*shrugs* Brain power for the win :)
Also, you've got glorious hair. I'm a bit jealous.

Aw, thanks. :) All it takes is being willing to let it keep growing while it works its way through the "ugly as hell" stage. ;-)

B is going to be 62 in a few weeks, and he still feels young inside. I'm shocked whenever younger people defer to me when getting on the bus. For goshsakes, I'm not 50, am I??

Welcome to getting older.

Yeah. :/ And I can only look forward to more of it.

Then again, as the saying goes, it sure beats the alternative. ;-)

Oh, yeah, it sure does! :D

Yep, you're a kid until you decide otherwise, is my philosophy.

I promise you, in another twenty years it will seem even more surreal.

Yeah, I imagine it will. But right now, I'm at that stage where the thoughts of "Oh, I'll get in shape for that" are becoming less realistic.

Yup
You're still a kid. Always will be, young whippersnapper!
