It's My Birthday

Engine engine number 9
Today I’m thirty freakin’ nine
I think my brain has jumped the track
Control of my bladder is all out of whack
My last year in my 30’s, there’s a lot here at stake,
While I deem what to do, I think I’ll eat cake.

Happy happy birthday, Vern dear.
You'll be in your thirties one more year.
Once you're 40 then we'll wait and see
If your bladder can contain your pee.

(Okay, it sucks, but I'm already a day late and can't come up with anything better!)

Hope it was a great day!

Thirty "freaking" nine, your killing me. The bladder problem, you have my sympathies but the age thing.......not so much.

I've been telling everyone that fifty is the new thirty which puts you somewhere in the new twenties.

Happy Belated Birthday,
I just read in SELF magazine that 40 is the new 20, while 20 year olds may not believe this, we that are fast approaching 40, accept this new belief as the absolute truth!
