Fabulous Forty

John Cougar Mellencamp, I'm sorry, but I think you got it wrong:

"Oh, yeah, life goes on, long after the thrill of living is gone....  Hold on to sixteen as long as you can..."

Don't hold on to sixteen as long as you can.  It gets better and better.

And the thrill of living is just getting started.

Who wants to be 16? The insecrurities, the self-doubt, the apprehension? I'd rather be a fabulous forty who knows her place in the world.
Like my 18 year old niece said, "when I am your age, I want to be like you". Hell no, I wish you could be me NOW!

Happy birthday, fellow voyager.
