Hello my very beloved offspring,
Someday when you read this, I will be even more ancient than I am right now. Someday I hope very much to be a crotchety old lady who says wildly inappropriate things and embarrasses you by grabbing your father’s keister in the retirement community where we live. But for now, I’m only 40.
Everyone says turning 40 is a really big deal but I have not found that to be so. But upon this occasion (and just in case I drop dead tomorrow), I thought I’d tell you what my perspective on life is at this particular moment. Then when you turn 40 and start wondering “Why don’t I feel like a real grown-up yet?” you can read this and feel better. Because at least you will realize that your immaturity is in part hereditary. Sorry about that.
Great read! <3
