Since I got these number plates I have lost count of how many people have commented on my age ... things like 'oh so you're 40 next year!' or 'it's all downhill from here' and the one I heard today was 'kind of hard to hide your age now isn't it'.
I must admit I debated for a long time what plates to get. I had 3 choices, either 'Jodene', JT2404 (my birthdate) or these. I figured the 1969 looked less random than the 2404 (yes I may be a little anal/OCD) but as I said to Gerard when he asked if I was concerned that everyone would know my age ... I have never been one to hide my age anyway, so why do I care? I am not the one with the Peter Pan syndrome around here ;)
Am I the only person I know who is NOT concerned about their age? Yes I am 40 next year ... bring it on!! I am not worried about it. I am looking forward to it ... to moving forward into the next phase of my life ... to see what the next decade will bring for me. Why should I be ashamed of it? Why do people comment with pity in their voice? All I say is don't lay your own insecurities on me! I have enough of my own, but my age isn't one of them. lol
Yes I am almost 40 ... lets start planning the party I say!!
