31

It's my birthday. I don't know exactly when it happened, but at some point in the past few years I reached the age where I wasn't counting down to my birthday. Last night, I wasn't aware that it was going to be my birthday today, and this morning I didn't open my eyes and think "ooh, birthday!"

31 is also an age that is firmly within the 30s. Being actually 30 is borderline 20s, so that was younger. I'm not sure how to feel about 31. Lori asked me if I feel 31, and while the answer is perhaps "no," I don't actually feel like any other age, either. I guess I mostly just feel like myself.

That's a good thing.

Are you suggesting I won't feel like myself when I'm 40? :)

Yes. When I was younger and would here older (older than me) complain about their aliments, I wold laugh and discount their compliants thinking they were just out of shape, lazy or generally negative people. But for some reason, once I hit 40, it would take a bit longer to recover from a long run or playing a session of soccer (fussball). Now I understand.
