When I'm 64...
(The following is a gratuitous birthday posting)
I'm not exactly sure when it started, but with these numerical candles, we started reversing the numbers. It may have been the year that my mother-in-law turned 59. We made her 95 so she'd really feel old.
Today, July 11, I'm finally older than my youngest son, who's 61 for a few more days. On the 20th he'll turn 71 and be older than me once again. My wife is a nice even 44 no matter how you look at it. Tyler is just plain ancient at 91. I think it’s funny that I'm still younger than my MIL, at 86 and yet older than my sister-in-law at 63. Goofy I know, but we have fun with it.
The cake by the way is a totally from scratch banana cake made by my irreversible wife. Sadly scratch cake baker is not a phrase she usually identifies with. She made it to go along with Tyler's dinner the other night. Homemade banana cake is one of my faves and reminds me of my childhood. It was darn good and much appreciated.
I'll celebrate tonight with a 5 mile run and dinner at Red Robins. A birthday burger sounds good to me.
So how "old" are you?
