Age-Old Question

“So you hit the big Four-Oh, Huh?” I said to a friend who was already in the coffee shop.

“How’d you find out?” she blurted.

“Everybody knows.”

This seems to be the common reaction at thirty, and then again at forty. After fifty it doesn’t matter anymore. Most folks have come to realize that they are counted among those allowed to grow older rather than taking the shortcut to the graveyard.
