  1. Yeah, whatever happened to those days, James?

    It’s just scary is all I know. I’m working with guys who are O-4s and O-5s and thinking, “Damn, those guys are kids. How the hell did they get to be majors and lieutenant colonels?!” Then it occurs to me that they’re my age. Indeed, my commissioning class is in the zone for LTC this year.

    Wow, it’d be so great to be 35 again! None of this being thirteen years older than the wife nonsense. Lop off eight and do it it right.

    So nice to still be 23…

  5. I remember when I thought 35 was old. (A year ago when I was 34.)

    One of the girls in the small group I lead invited me to go swing dancing with her and her friends. Flattering to know that she likes hanging out with me, but at 37, I’m old enough to be all of their mothers. Yikes!
