So a few months ago, I turned the big 4....0. No biggie, right?
Well apparently it is to EVERYONE else.
All last year when someone would find out I was 39, they would say, with pity in their voice: "ohhhhh you are going to be FORTY" (Yes, the word FORTY was always said in a whisper. Like it was some sort of contagious disease????) I got teased all year long about turning FORTY. Even my dad, who was turning SIXTY, would say "hahahaha, you are gonna be 40, are you scared?"
Um, NO! I have no problems turning FORTY. Yah sometimes it does suck to get older. But it happens and we accept it. Can't stop it. And not sure when FORTY became the number for old age?
Other that needing to lose some weight, I don't think I have AGED too bad. I have nice skin with one or two "wrinkles", and I take care of myself. So not like I turned FORTY and fell apart?
In my experience, turning FORTY has been fun. A cousin, who is a few years older than myself, recently told me there is good and bad about turning FORTY. She really didn't go into the bad but did say that the sex was better. I think so!
So really unsure what the big deal is all about? Anyone care to enlighten me????
