I am thirty-eight. It has taken me a few days to get this post out. I don't know why but I suspect it is because I feel like I should have something profound to say. Sadly, I don't have any words of wisdom that I can think of. At the very least, I can say that I am not yet 40 years of age.
I never really thought much about the aging process until a few years ago. I don't feel any "older" and I certainly don't behave any older. One thing I will note is that in more recent months, I have felt a case of the "mundanes" settling in over my life. I hear this is common right before a "big zero" year. I didn't realize it would be common for me. That is something the younger kids would say, isn't it?
"I didn't think it would happen to me. I don't think I am that old."
