5 Birthday Quotes That Made Me Giggle

Today, I officially got my “Middle-Aged Man Card” in the mail. I knew I was getting close to middle-age when conversations shifted amongst my friends from ambition, early married life, and comparing/contrasting theological themes in movies to longevity in ministry, vasectomies, and how much the movie rating system has changed since we were in high school.

Seriously– These are the things 35 year old men talk about over a cup of coffee with friends. I shudder to know what I’ll be talking about in 15 years.

Rather than fill today’s post with sentimentalities of what I’ve done and/or hoped to do with my first 35 years, I thought it’d be more fun to share 5 quotes about birthday’s that made me giggle. (Or think. But not too hard since I haven’t had my coffee yet.)

  1. May you live to be 100 and may the last voice you hear be mine. ~ Frank Sinatra
  2. You are only young once, but you can stay immature indefinitely.  ~ Ogden Nash
  3. I am sixty years of age. That’s 16 Celsius. ~ George Carlin
  4. I’ve never looked forward to a birthday like I’m looking forward to my new daughter’s birthday, because two days after that is when I can apply for reinstatement. ~ Pete Rose
  5. Youth is a wonderful thing.  What a crime to waste it on children.  ~ George Bernard Shaw

    Would much rather be getting the “Middle-Aged Man Card” you’re getting in the mail than the AARP Card that I’ve been getting! Happy Birthday my friend! Hope the next 35 are as cool as the first!

    My dad and I have the same name, and I’ve been getting his AARP stuff for years. My wife thinks it’s hilarious.
