Last year upon turning 40, I began making a list of things I wanted to do in honor of the big milestone.
I’ve since lost the list and the only item I can remember is that I was going to go have my hair cut professionally (I’ve been cutting it myself for 21 years).
I have yet to do that.
You see, I have an aversion to paying someone to take scissors to my hair, when I might not even like the result. Besides, my hair is… special. You know - curly, temperamental, difficult. You’d have to know it personally to know how to cut it.
Anyway, if I ever find my list, I’ll let you know what else I didn’t do this year.

In other news, the Celtics won the first game of the finals last night. It was a good game; especially the part when Paul Pierce came back out into the arena after spraining his knee. You had to see it to understand – major warm and fuzzy feelings abounded.
Also, I loved the ad, like so many others that have been shown, with Larry Bird and Magic Johnson – and only half their faces showing. I’m still marveling at how they’ve changed.
Where has the time gone?
Oh yeah, I’m not 20 anymore. I guess that pretty much sums it up.
