One Day Closer to Death

Although my birthday isn’t actually until tomorrow, I’ve already begun reflecting on this past year and it seems like my body has aged exponentially over the past 12 months. And yesterday was the icing on the (birthday) cake.

I have now been prescribed Flonase. For allergies. I get to go into my 35th year with a new prescription. I’ve always associated “getting older” with having to be on medications to survive. I’ve never been a daily medication taker. And now, 364 days into my 34th year, I am.

Happy birthday to me.

Actually, I do suspect that it will be a nice day overall. The Flonase should finally be kicking in by then so this unbearable pain will hopefully be gone. And Mike is coordinating a little dinner gathering for me tomorrow night in the South End. I should be fine as long as I bring my walker and heart pills.

    Ohh, be nice to Karl! It must be tough to go from a swinging single to geriatric soft-brain overnight. For all his complaining he seems pretty happy to make his birthday a five-day affair!
