Kylie at 40
Kylie turns 40 today. Happy Birthday, Kylie.
As my generation rapidly approaches this so-called landmark age, I have to wonder why people make such a fuss over it. Is it the gateway to being middle aged? Is it that the number is divisible by 10? [perhaps in a digital age we should revere the powers of two instead - "Life begins at 32" is quite catchy] Is it people fishing for compliments ("No you don't look a day over 35")?
Perhaps I'll suddenly buy a sports car or start wearing wacky ties to prove that I'm still youthful.
