38, And Still Not On Facebook!!!
There seems to be a trend afoot among some people I know, of covertly removing their birthday from Facebook to avoid the attention (though a valid argument can be made that this is actually an obvious ploy to get more (or at least a different sort of) attention.) Per usual, I went one step beyond and simply denied Facebook altogether! (more on this to come). Seriously though, rather than play coy, I will happily announce that today is my birthday, and also send out a hearty Happy Bday Motherfucker! to my good friend, Aaron Kaplan. As a former boss of mine told me “Nobody likes getting old…but it sure beats the alternative.” Of course he also used to also say “What’s the difference between frustration and despair? Frustration is the first time you can’t get it up for seconds, despair is the second time you can’t get it up for firsts.” And also “you can’t slice bologna so thin that it only has one side.” Ok, now I’m rambling. It’s my B-day…sue me. —Uncle Eb/John
