I turned 50 yesterday. I have no idea how time managed to pass so swiftly. I have distinct memories of my 10th birthday, sweet 16, 20th, 30th and 40th celebrations, so my memory is still intact. I even remember my father’s 50th birthday: I was working in his law office when a local radio personality showed up in clown face to deliver a signing birthday greeting…OK so singing telegrams might date me a bit.
I am more fit and healthier than I have ever been in my life, don’t look anywhere close to 50, and act half my age. “Sarkiness” and living well may very well be the key to longevity. And naps, which I am ready for right now.
