Well, another birthday is here. I stopped counting birthdays years ago. It just go too depressing after a while. And though I’m a year older, it doesn’t seem like it. I don’t feel any older. It does seems like the older you are, the faster these birthdays creep up on you.
So, what am I going to do for my birthday? Work and try to forget it! Just make it another day in the office. I don’t want a party or anything special. Just a piece of birthday cake, and wash it down with a bottle of Rolling Rock beer.
Thanks for the birthday wishes!!
