My Wife and I are Turning 40 Tomorrow...

Posted on 12/15/2007 6:16:49 AM PST by big truck

We met in college. I was from Pennsylvania, she was from Oregon. We both worked in the cafeteria.

Somehow the topic of birthdays came up - she was born in December, so was I. She was born on the 16th, so was I. She was born in 1967, so was I. She was born at 10:40 am (pacific time), I was born at 1:58 pm (eastern time). Given the time change, she is 18 minutes older than I am. Any freeper advice as we crest the big hill tomorrow?

Happy birthday to you both! I’ve found my 40’s to be the best years of my life so far, and I hope you do, too.

Get down on your knees and beg forgiveness for anything and everything. A good woman is hard to find.

They might be twins separated at birth. Chew on that one for awhile.

Don't go down the hill! When I turned forty I was given a black ribbon with the printed words "Older than dirt".

40s are cool so far. I’m 43 and I’m happier in life than I’ve ever been.

Go buy some reading glasses (if you don’t wear them already.) 40 is the magic age at which, when reading the newspaper or a book, your arms aren’t long enough anymore.

Give yourselves matching “Over the Hill” sweatshirts and wear them together in public. People will appreciate your sense of humor and will be laughing with you not at you.
