The Last Birthday I'll Ever Have

Today I turn 29. (And no, this is not a cheap way to fish for happy birthday wishes.) I am really excited for a couple of reasons. First, I've noticed that the ages that have been odd (like 21, 25) have been better than the even-aged years (like 20). I have no idea why this is, but it is. So hooray for the return of an odd-numbered age! Second, 29 is a really easy age to remember. As a kid I never understood how adults could not remember how old they were; yet I have turned into one of those adults. Hopefully this age will remedy that. Third, honestly, who can NOT love a birthday? I hear from family and friends, get new things, and eat whatever I want simply because I can. Bring on the hot tamales!

why did you entitle it, "the last birthday i'll ever have"?
