I’m 39 at the moment, but some time soon – March 17 to be exact – I will be 40.
People have started to ask me what I am going to do for my 40th. My first instinct will be to run away and hide, although that’s not too practical in the long-term: How long would I hide for? How does one hide from a number? Where would I run to to escape this number?
I don’t like parties all that much. I think it might have to be a big meal somewhere for all my friends, and another for all my family.
Or I might just stay in bed that day and order some slippers and cardigan on the internet.
