Four Oh

When I met Erik it was quite interesting to be dating an older man, even if he rarely acted like it. Just knowing he had 10 years more experience than me was pretty cool.

  • While I was dressing up like Madonna in the 80’s he was going to punk shows.
  • When I got my first period he was getting married.
  • When I became legal he bought his first house.

I find it amusing to remind him of these things sometimes especially because it really freaks him out. But really, he looks more like he’s in his twenties and he would rather play with Play-Doh than do just about anything else.

Despite all that the day has arrived, and we both knew it would come. When I met him he was 34 and I knew it was inevitable. No matter how young at heart he was and how many sneakers he drew on eventually one day it would happen. Today, is that day. Today Erik turns…

Whether he likes it or not, he’s officially an old man. Sorry :erik:

    Avi – I should get him a walker.

    Fab – He needs more of the elderly to make him feel better.

    Maureen – :naha:

    Heather – I’ll make sure to be as nice to you on your 40th as I was to him 👿

    Mutt – Age is only a number, except when you move into a new decade.

    Cheri – :lmao:

    Amanda – He loves to hear that.

    I used to think I’d never fuck anyone older than thirty,and then I changed it to forty. Now I swear that fifty is my limit!

    Before I met Erik I was about 24 and I swore up and down the 3 rules about guys:

    1. Never married.
    2. No kids.
    3. Under 30.

    That’s what happens when you say things like that, you get everything you didn’t want.

    I didn’t know he was forty also till someone else told me. He looks like he is our age.

    I think about the kids I used to babysit and how old they are now… And kids today, and what they didn’t have (records and stuff) and I feel SOOO old.

    Welcome to mid-thirties. LOL
