Jack Benny stopped counting birthdays at 39.
Saying he was 39 got laughs. Forty wasn't as funny.
Age is a touchy subject. Now I'll only admit to being
"of a certain age." People can interpret that however they want.
But when I think back,
30 was magical, sensual, sultry, powerful.
40 entitled me to say, "I'm too old for this shit"
so it wasn't as bad as I'd feared, anticipating the big 4-0.
And I'd already had my 50th when I got carded
by a wait person who was really amazed
when she checked my ID and said, "No way!"
THAT, my friends, was a great day.
So yeah, I'm over 50 and still full of sass.
What was your favorite age?
What made that year so special?
Tell me about it.
