Ever since I turned 40 (5 days ago)
I have looked at the world through different eyes.
Well...they're still mine I just see things in another way. Old age will do that to you.
I think about all the things I've done before and how they have affected my life now. I wonder about all the things I am going to do and the impact they will make accordingly.
Like the time we organized a strike for the right to have a good time at work.
Yeah it didn't go so well.
I look at my tattoos in the mirror. The ones that have been in place for 22 years. Here is what they look like after being subjected to the sun for all that time.
Fortunately I did not get tattoos that started off ugly like these chaps.
"Purdy kids ya got there, Clark."
I remember the one time I paid a stripper to do a dance on my brand new motorcycle. It started out good but in the end I had to replace a few parts.
So now a days I try to think about things before I do or say them.
unless I'm drunk then all bets are off
The wife and I are starting our empty nest career and who knows what we may get into.
I'm a pretty fun guy.
We could go for car rides and tour the country.
We could have long conversations together.
I could always help her out in the morning when she's running late.
She really does love me and if I were to ever die she would be so sad.
So maybe 40 won't be that bad afterall. Kinda looking forward to it now.
