40 is the new 30 (20?)

Yeah, I'm 40 now. That makes me sexier. :)

A word of advice: DO NOT have your 40th birthday on a Monday, unless you're taking the day off. It was brutal.

However, a couple of my team members disappeared for a while mid-morning and bought me this t-shirt (you may recall my post a few weeks back):




You, too can ride the SLUT soon ... for a price.

I endured a lot of jokes at work ... "Matt, if you can get your walker going and stay off the ventilator for a few minutes, can you come look at this?" ... "Wow, your eyesight really is shot if you came to work wearing THAT" ... "Is that a Depends in your pants or are you happy to see me?". Those people are all DEAD TO ME.

I was also taken out to a very cool lunch at the Kingfish Cafe (if you're ever in Seattle, you MUST go here ... preferrably for dinner. I had red beans and rice, and we shared a HUGE piece of Red Velvet Cake. Mmmmmm ... )

Scott bought me some nice things, and we made a nice dinner together.

So I survived. And I don't look a DAY over 40. (Well, okay ... ONE day ...)

Wow. What did I give my boyfriend earlier this month for his birthday?... Why, a "Ride the S.L.U.T." t-shirt (among other things, of course)! Creepy that you were gifted the same thing!

The first time I wore my own "Ride the S.L.U.T." t-shirt out in public, I felt entirely naked. I wasn't prepared! But, still - such a wonderful purchase!

40 is indeed the new 30 - which means I'm still enjoying m,y pseudo 20's! I'm enjoying this way of thinking.

Gents are like wine and get better with age so any extra fruity, full-bodiedness you nay accumulate from now on will actually make you more and more irresistable!

Scott said...

Hmm, We now know Darth is into the fruity types. :-)

Darth Gateau said...

Fruity types? I say, steady on!

Paul said...

Thanks, I'd like to. Is there a line? Or do we take a number?

This is obviously something new to me.

Happy 40th...just a little belated. Joe and I will be with you soon enough! Love the shirt. I'll have to keep my eyes peeled for one. I need to expand my church wardrobe a little.
