Happy birthday and I ditto that who's counting mentality..
It's bad when you are asked how old you are, and you have to stop and 
think a second... umm uhh.. oh yah, im 42 ...  this reminds me of an 
incident in the liquor store...
I was carded, I don't know why but every friggin time I shave off my 
moustache I get carded.  personally I don't think I look *that* young 
without it but hell.....I tell her im 42... she looks at me with that 
look, then says I need to see some ID.  Maybe it was the fact that I 
felt she was more a candidate to be carded to see if she was 21 and 
legally able to sell me alcohol than I looked like a 20 year old trying 
to sneak a beer purchase...I was a bit taken back...
I tell her...Oh come on gimme a break,  you see this and I point to my 
head.. it's called GRAY HAIR...you arent born with this you know, you 
get it from years of putting up with  kids like you making your life 
difficult....
I still need to see an id, at which point I produce a drivers license 
and my military retiree ID card... she looks at both of them for a few 
seconds and says.. Oh wow, you ARE old and rings up the 12 pack...
I kind of snorted and told her, oh for that comment, you owe me a ten 
percent discount missy...you can ring it up as a senior citizens 
discount... she realised what she said I guess, said, oh im sorry, I 
didn't mean it that way, and started blushing with this big grin... but 
it was too late, we both laughed, all the others in line laughed and I 
got my discount..
Birthdays, who needs em, it's just another day as far as Im concerned...
Ooh happy B day, you are another year older... umm no im not, I didn't 
just suddenly age a YEAR overnight... im a day older... if that...
