I’ve never had a birthday cake with sparklers on it. I’d like to rectify that by June.

 

Why is it that seems men are less vain about aging than women? Of course there are exceptions, not all women and not all men think or act the same way, but it seems that in general, women have a more difficult time accepting that they’re getting older than men do. 30 seems to be the tough age for women to accept they’ve hit. There’s something about no longer being able to say you’re in your 20s that gives you a sick feeling in your stomach. I felt that way five years ago when I turned 30. I’m sure I’ll feel that way in five years when I turn 40. My dad, he doesn’t care. He’s 68, and he doesn’t give a damn who knows it. My mom, on the other hand, when we wish her a Happy Birthday or give her a card, we’re not allowed to use numbers. She’s the same age as my dad, but it must go unacknowledged. My sister is turning 30 tomorrow, and if you bring it up, she growls at you. LOL.

Do you know anyone else like this? Do you tend to see more men embracing getting older or women?

As a bonus, Happy Birthday to Aaron Rodgers, the sexiest man to ever draw breath. To hell with People Magazine — Blake Shelton ain’t shit.

    I was growling 2 months back with the fear of turning 30 in oct. Vented out in a long post. By the time i actually hit 30 i was pretty normal.
