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.
