Day 37: Age 46
Today, I celebrated my 46th birthday. 46 is not a milestone age, not like hitting 16, 21, or even 40. I’m not sure what other milestones are left after 40, maybe 60. Anyway you look at it, 46 is a pretty non-significant birthday as birthdays go.
As a present to myself, I took the day off from work and played golf. I ended the round with three straight birdies, something I have never done before. I admit, it was an easy course, but it was still an amazing feat by my standard. I took it as a wink and a nudge from the golf gods wishing me a happy birthday. After dinner, I was presented with cards and presents from my family and a birthday cake. Not just any cake, but an original Carvel ice cream cake, my favorite. This was a sweet ending to a sweet day.
