60 years. Am I now allowed to be grumpy?
« on: September 08, 2017, 12:39 PM »
Yeah, my b-day is today, the 8'th of September. But the age is 60 now. Ouch, 60!!

.. you come across as someone young at heart  :)
I wil take it as a compliment: Thank you, Darwin,....I think.  8)
Curt - in case I miss it - Happy Birthday!
Thank you, Darwin! Actual (sorry!), I am a little afraid I might miss it myself...

I didn't miss it back then, and I didn't miss it today either. It was nice to be celebrated at work, and I am looking forward to my party tomorrow. What freaks me out is that 10 more years passed by just like that! It's terrifying how fast time goes by. But you won't understand it if you still are young.

"60". Hm... there is something about this number. Am I now allowed to be grumpy?

If you have to ask...then no. Grumpy is something that you lay claim to all on your own. If you're still waiting to get permission to be grumpy you're just not ready for it yet. You have to first stop worrying about other people thinking it "ok"...  :D

I've been "grumpy" since I turned 50 a few years back ... But I've always been ahead of the curve in all the wrong places..  ;)

I have to agree it is terrifying how fast time seems to fly as you get older.

A belated Happy Birthday! Have a nice party.

Just be your normal self, like before. If that turns out to be somewhat grumpy in specific situations, then just let it happen, and return to normal self asap :P
(been there, done that, though it'll take a few years to turn 60 myself)

Belated Happy Birthday, Curt.
No, you aren't allowed to be grumpy after 60; you have to run around with a huge, fake grin plastered on your face for the rest of your days. Them's the rules! :P
