Birthday Vibes


It keeps coming up: what do you want to do for your 40th birthday? 

Nothing, I said.

Eh, maybe kayaking, I said. Maybe lobsters.

Something quiet, I said.

I have not been able to muster any enthusiasm for the big 4-0. Until yesterday when this birthday card arrived in the mail for Chris. I stared at the cartoon for a while, smiling. Yes, I thought, this is what I want my birthday to feel like.

  1. Felt the same. Kept it very small and low key. Followed through on plan from when we were kids from two closest friends from childhood – had Chinese food, went to Broadway show & met Jane Krakowski outside (holding a picture of me meeting Jane Krakowski from 1987). Drank cocktails. Totally relate to your post.

    1. I saw that picture on Twitter-it’s amazing! Was your meeting in 1987 by chance? I’d had no idea it was taken on your birthday. Happy belated 40th!!
