What's the big deal? Its just a number, ok it's a BIG number. If you live to be a hundred you are only in your middle ages. Only 50 more years before Willard Scott announces your name on TV. You are right around the corner from collecting Social Security---if there is any left. Due to your age people look up to you. In about 20 years people will help you do minor tasks. In about 30 years you can say whatever you damn well please---oh wait you do that already!
I'd just like to say Geoff---nanny...nanny... nanny... Happy 5oth you got there FIRST!
