I hit a milestone today, one that I have been in denial of for quite some time. If anyone's looked at my PROFILE you'll notice that I never made my age public. I guess I did have some issue with it....and possibly I still do.
But its time to fess up.
I was born on May 3, 1950.....that's exactly 60 years ago today, to any of you guys who are deficient in math skills. And if we can believe the government statistics, that constitutes a whole lot of people.
Yes it used to scare the crap out of me too. As in, "Man, you really are older than dirt!".
And honestly, it never really dawned on me until last month. One night I couldn't sleep, so I put on the TV- I can't say "tube' anymore; there are no more TV tubes. There was very little on, so I put on VH1 CLASSIC; they were showing THE DAVID CASSIDY STORY- oh great!
But the selections were so limited i stuck with old David's story....and it wasn't all that bad. It will never be spoken of in the same terms given to biopics like GANDHI, but it was watchable, and even entertaining.
But I soon discovered that the reason the movie was being shown was because it was David Cassidy's birthday. He turned 60 that day.
Impossible! You can't have a 60 year old David Cassidy! That's soooooo friggin' old! John Wayne can never REALLY die; Johnny Cash's voice can never be silenced; and David Cassidy can't be 60.
But it was true....he was. And so would I be in a few short weeks.
I've come to reconcile myself to the fact that I ain't so young no more....though I don't look or act it, but sometimes feel it creeping up. And all I have to do is think about the millions of people every year who will not make it past 16.
It makes 60 seem like a pretty good run.
There are some advantages to hitting this milestone. Now I can be excused for acting like a crabby old man on occasion, because now I am one.
And I suppose I'll finally start opening that AARP junk mail I've been getting for ten years now. I used to send them back, then i just trashed them. If they can get me an oceanview room at a reduced rate, I guess its worth it.
