Forty? Pounder!

Top Ten revelations about becoming forty:
  1. Music in 1968 was really good -- Hey Jude, Jumping Jack Flash, and REALLY bad -- Yummy Yummy Yummy, Hurdy Gurdy Man.*)
  2. 40 is the new 30 (in much the same way Cedric the Entertainer is the new Richard Pryor).
  3. Buying a 40-pounder of booze is still out of the question. It used to be because of the money. Now it's about the expiry date.
  4. That sound your knees make when you get out of bed is not breaking bones, but it ain't good.
  5. Ear hair. Yeah... that's fair.
  6. Apparently turning 50 is worse. I'm okay with that.
  7. In 1968, you couldn't put a man on the moon. In 2008... you can't put a man on the moon. Godspeed, John Glenn.
  8. I am exactly 25 years from my kids realizing how young I was 'back then'. There will still be no hover-cars.
  9. Most prized birthday present? Sleeping 'til 8:30 on Sunday. By a long-shot.
  10. Me at 40 definitely beats two of me at 20.
