Not old...

Because I'm still that 13-year-old listening to Runaway, Bon Jovi is always welcome to sing Happy Birthday to me--in their own, ever so amazing, way...

Hey, man, it's been a while
Do you remember me?
When I hit the streets I was 17
A little wild, a little green
I've been up and down and in between
After all these years and miles of memories
I'm still chasing dreams
But I ain't looking over my shoulder ...

I like the bed I'm sleeping in
It's just like me, it's broken in
It's not old - just older
Like a favorite pair of torn blue jeans
This skin I'm in it's alright with me
It's not old - just older

...and, yes, it's my birthday...and, no I won't tell you which one but my 2-year-old can now count how far away I am from forty...and, no, I don't feel old in the slightest! I camouflage my age well by surrounding myself with toddlers and a really hot older man.

Happy Birthday Dori! Your camouflage agrees with you, you look wonderful :-). Hope you have a great day with family and other loved ones.

Happy Birthday to a fellow birthday girl right after Christmas (mine's tomorrow).

I hope you've been lucky enough to have it celebrated seperately! My mom was always really good at making it it's own day, while everyone else doublie dips.

Anyways, Happy Birthday!

Well, happy birthday! Like Indiana Jones says... it's not the years, it's the mileage. Hope it's been very happy.
