Thanks to my friend Jeremiah Owyang and Facebook's tradition of ratting out it's users, the beans have been pretty much spilled. It's true. I don't feel a day over 64, which is exactly how old I am.
My first inclination is to demand a recount, but getting one can be challenging as my Iranian Twitter friends have learned.
It's also true, that I timed #tbash to coincide with my birthday. I figured I could celebrate with over 300 people and have this little secret that I was also observing my birthday, but I got caught with my birth certificate showing.
I guess the worst part is knowing that it's well past halftime in the game of life and I'm still not sure how it will come out or when the game ends..
There are also a few perks. I get to save money at the movies and on planes and at some hotels. Also, I've picked up a few pearls of wisdom over the years--or at least I think I have.
Should I share them with you? Probably not. Life is about finding your own pearls of wisdom and yours and mine very well could be different.
I'll just give you one tip: Stay curious. If you ever succumb do a "been there, done that attitude, life gets boring and so do you.
I'll give you another one at this time next year. I should live so long.
