Yes, I know if sounds conceited, but there are some things you need to know about this day:
- The Billboard #1 hit for this day was "Tonight's the Night" by Rod Stewart. Man was he ever right!
- The Berlin Wall fell on 9 November, 1989. What people don't know is that it was really to celebrate my birthday! OK... just kidding, but it's a marvelous coincidence!
- 9 November, 2016. My 40th birthday will not be marked by black balloons or tombstones proclaiming that I'm "Over the Hill" and getting older... but it will be a PARTY! I'm gonna have some real fun on this day!
But in all seriousness, this is a special day for me, even if I don't celebrate it with flourishes and fanfare. I'm 37 today. I'm still alive and I'm grateful for it.
Thank you to all for your birthday wishes!
