Birthday Tammy Logic

Breigh May 8, 2009 17

Last night in bed my husband and I had the following conversation about my birthday.

Xander: Happy Almost Birthday!!
Me: *Sigh*  Only a half hour left of my youth…
Xander: Oh the daaaah-RAHMAAA!!
Me: It’s true.  Tomorrow I’ll be 34, and do you know what that means?  Next year I’ll be 35!
Xander: All that and you can count too?  I’m so lucky…
Me: No, seriously, 35 sounds so much older than 34.  When you were 19, didn’t 35 sound absolutely ancient?  As long as I’m not 35 I haven’t really felt old.
Xander: Wait a minute, I will be 35 this year!!  Thanks!
Me: *ignoring him* Then, do you know what comes after 35? 36!  Once I hit 36 I’m on the way to 40! *Starting to feel weepy*
Xander: I hate to break it to you, but you are heading for 40 now.
Me: *Shockhorror*  I MOST CERTAINLY AM NOT!!!!!
Xander:  Um, yes you are.  If you are heading for 35, you are also heading for 40.
Me:  NO. I. AM. NOT.  I am heading to 35, not 40, 35.  Once I’m 36 I’ll be heading to 40 but right now I am heading to 35.  Do you hear me?   You are wrong.
Xander: I’m getting the feeling this is another one of those Tammy Logic things…
Me:  No, it’s a fact. Right now I am heading up a hill towards 35. *Upward motion with hand*  Once I turn 35 I’ll be at the top.  Then once I turn 36 I’ll be on my dooooowwwwn towards 40.  So right now I am not heading towards 40, I’m heading towards 35.  You see?  So when I turn 36 I will be heading to 40.  Not 45, 40.  Cuz when I get to the bottom I will go uphill again when I am heading to 45, which won’t be 50, it will be 45.  Do you see now?  *Breathlessly making up and down motion with hands*  UP, Down, UP, Down.
Xander:  Umm, yes.  You are still heading for 40 though.
Me:  *Silent while wondering if I could kill him and get out of the country before they catch me*  Iamnot.  *mutters*

I dunno, it makes perfect sense to me.  Clearly, he is wrong.

    hahaha sorry girls! I was going to put P.S. SORRY PAULE at the end, but then I knew my sister would go, BITCH WHAT ABOUT ME?! Then I’d have to be P.S. Sorry Paule and Kathy… but then I thought about Lynda.

    So I’ll just say sorry to everyone over 35 right now! SORRY! haha

    Thx for the birthday wishes!

    Hehe, I see I should stop being worried about getting old when I am just 20+ But time is depressing, no-one can deny that.

    Happy birthday! I hope that your future will be only better and better :)

    Happy Birthday, let me know how 34 feels, I have a few years left yet. Man I will be 30!!! next year, 29 next month. Man time flies.

    Have a good one. No matter what age your heading for.

    Yeah, I just turned 26 and I feel I’m on the fast track to 30. My husband laughs at me because he’s almost 31.

    Either way – have a happy birthday! And don’t worry, 40 is still a ways away :)

    That sounds like a conversation Katie and I would have. Happy belated birthday, BTW.
