    So today's my 40th birthday and up until now I've been thinking that it wasn't going to be a big deal.Now that it's finally here,I'm freaking out just a little.Even when I was in my 30's I thought of myself as young,but now that I have hit 40,I've been thinking to myself all day "Man,I'm really getting old."


    I know there are some other folks on here that are older than me,so I'm just wondering if they went through the same thing or if it really didn't bother them.

    I honestly don't know the answer. I'll find out in 7 months when I hit the big 4-0.

    Happy Birthday!!!!

    Happy Birthday! Will hit it in a couple of years.

    Do people also give you guys strange looks when you go to toy stores to check on the TF stocks during off season (outside of the holidays?)...or maybe sales clerks would try to make a sale by asking you what age your "gift" is for? :p

    Happy birthday!

    Im 39, so that next number is creeping up soon. But my daughter turning 18 yesterday is killing me. And her constantly telling me that i'm old doesn't help.

    You are young and life is long, and there is time to kill today. And then one day you find, ten years have got behind you....
