Gettin' on in years

I had a birthday a while back. Not long ago, I received a birthday card with this message:

Hi Alex,
I forgot your Birthday. See? That's what is means to get older.

Oh goodie.

As it turns out, the message was more or less accurate. Just last week there was a birthday party for our day-care provider's son. B and I were late - partly because B's nap ran long, but also because I clean forgot about it until, by chance, iChatting with my parents after B awoke brought it back to mind. My next thought was, of course, "oh crap, I meant to buy something two weeks ago!" The local bookstore was closed on a Sunday (???!!!), and we were already almost two hours late, so we also showed up empty handed. Yup, I'm gettin' on in years.

That's stress, not age, but oh, to be 30!
