Celebrate, one and all, in the birth of our dear friend Chelan. Today she turns 28 (just like me) and is one year closer to being older. "When are you older?" one might ask. That is something I, too, have been pondering. Is it when there's more silver in your mouth than white? Some could debate that. Is it when you have more skin than fat to fill it up? Some, too, could debate that problem. Maybe it's when you have a fair amount of grey hair. I'm afraid even that is debatable. Remember that one dude on American Idol that was totally grey? He definetely was not "older". What about losing memory? Then again, you could just be pregnant or it could be a coping mechanism to save you from horrible childhood memories. In that case, you might not be "older" at all! You know you're getting older when dinner time moves from 6pm all the way up to 3pm, and sleeping in means you wake up at 5:30am. You're probably getting "older" when you look at everyone around you and think "Why does everyone look so young?" If you thought to yourself just now, "I think that all the time," then face it, you might be "older" now!
Happy Birthday, Chezam!
