I’ve never had birthday trauma before.  Um…  I don’t think.  If I have, I totally don’t remember.  This time, though, is a different story.  I keep meeting really old people only to discover they are younger than me.  What?  Am I living in a fantasy world… already? 

I’ve been told I look like I could be in college.  Then again, I’ve read about 99-year-old college students, so that’s not helpful.  I think part of the problem with this birthday is that we celebrated it by going to dinner and a movie.  At the restaurant the waitress called me Sweetie!  Ahhhh! It’s a sure sign you’re getting old when someone calls you Sweetie!  Ehh?  What’s that you say, Tootsie Pie?  You don’t want a tip today?   

And it certainly didn’t help that the movie we saw was called “Still Alice,” a great movie that just happened to be about a vibrant woman who was dealing with early-onset Alzheimer’s.  Yikes!  What was I thinking?...
