HB2Y Rossi

Rossi and Justin

Happy Birthday Rossi!! Big Hugs!

Do you realize that the only time in our lives when we like to get old is when we're kids? If you're less than 10 years old, you're so excited about aging that you think in fractions.

"How old are you?" "I'm four and a half!" You're never thirty-six and a half. You're four and a half, going on five! That's the key.

You get into your teens, now they can't hold you back. You jump to the next number, or even a few ahead.

"How old are you?" "I'm gonna be 16!" You could be 13, but hey, you're gonna be 16! And then the greatest day of your life . . . You become 21.

Even the words sound like a ceremony. . YOU BECOME 21. YESSSS!!!

But then you turn 30. Oooohh, what happened there? Makes you sound like bad milk! He TURNED; we had to throw him out. There's no fun now, you're Just a sour-dumpling.

What's wrong? What's changed?

You BECOME 21, you TURN 30, then you're PUSHING 40. Whoa! Put on the brakes, it's all slipping away. Before you know it, you REACH 50

And your dreams are gone.

But wait!!! You MAKE it to 60. You didn't think you would!

So you BECOME 21, TURN 30, PUSH 40, REACH 50 and MAKE it to 60.

You've built up so much speed that you HIT 70! After that it's a day-by-day thing; you HIT Wednesday!

You get into your 80's and every day is a complete cycle; you HIT lunch; you TURN 4:30; you REACH bedtime. And it doesn't end there. Into the 90's, you start going backwards; "I Was JUST 92."

Then a strange thing happens. If you make it over 100, you become a little kid again. "I'm 100 and a half!"

May you all make it to a healthy 100 and a half!!

That was really fun to read, Gabe. I'll be sure to give you a nice birthday present when you "TURN" 30.
Turing 22, 23 wasn't so fun...but now that I'm reaching 25...I'm staring to enjoy it. Life just gets better since with each year we learn how to live, and life gets sweeter and sweeter.
Keep writing, you're pretty good.

Wild flower,
I am glad you liked it...I however didn't write it. A Friend sent it to me on my birthday and so I thought I would share it with everyone by posting it for Rossi!

Did we connect? (I am not wearing "that wicked" shirt!)

nice little writ. Whoever wrote it. And how true too.

I thought it was pretty interesting, but I never heard of "100 and a half". That sounds like 150. The only time I want to reach that is in the millenium, and may God let that come soon before I get any older than I already am!

Yeh, Ken says to me yesterday, "Wow! You're like, halfway to 52 now!"

Whoever wrote that was talented, I was about to compliment you on it!
Happy Birthday Rossi!!! Love you!

I liked it too, except I don't want to live to a hundred and a half or anywhere near that!

Rosita said...

OMG... and I missed it!
Rossi is one of the most beautiful and sweet girls I know. She's always all smiles and hugs and fun to be around.
I love you Rossi and I pray that this new year is filled with lots of fun and surprises as the little one enters your life.
