Yes, it's my birthday. I'm finally 29. The reality of being almost 30 is upon me, and I have to be honest, I still don't feel too old. Health problems aside (and even then, my kidneys are functioning and my back feels MUCH better) I'm just as immature as I ever was. I don't think getting older changes this. Maybe having a kid would change it, but realistically, that would only regress me further into immaturity. Having a baby would mean staying up later, talking in baby voice, and getting to have an excuse to buy toys I want to play with. Not that Mrs. B. and I are trying to have kids at the moment, but I can see how getting older changes the conversation.
So what does someone do on their birthday? I chose to take yesterday, today, and tomorrow off because why would I want to work on my birthday? I'm pretty sure there are plenty of businesses that give away free stuff on your birthday... feel free to make suggestions on what establishments I should mooch off of today (Wendy's offered my $1 off a frosty- a $1 off? C'mon Wendy's- you can do better than that!)
I don't really have an interesting perspective on getting older, or want to turn this into "City Slickers 3: Billy Crystal Is Even More Insecure About His Age." So I'm off to hopefully get some stuff done, but I'll be back tomorrow with something a little more interesting.
