I REFUSE TO TURN 40 TODAY! I REFUSE TO TURN 40 TODAY!


Yeah, not too crazy about entering my 4th decade of life. So instead of just accepting the inevitable I’m actually going to be proactive about it. I relinquish (or is it renounce?) today as my official birth date. My birthday will now be [F the drum roll] …
The 15th of WENTERBURY
Rest assured the next time I have a decent-sized lunch break I will make this puppy legal. I’ll just saunter down to the ol’ DMV to fill out some forms and wait on some lines. In the meantime, if this "age oasis" sounds appealing to you, here are 6 THINGS I’M 72.8% SURE YOU DON’T KNOW ABOUT THE MONTH OF WENTERBURY.


#1: Wenterbury is a quadra-leap month. That means I won’t turn the “age that must not be named” until 2014.




#2: Wenterbury comes from the Latin word wuintriburius. It means – F*ck you I ain’t turning 40. 




#3: After my petition becomes law, feminist Gloria Steinem and comedian / author Bob Saget WILL share my Wenterbury birthday. 




#4: Wenterbury sorta rhymes with Scurvy – a pretty nasty disease.


#5: A high concentration of goats will menstruate on my birthday.


#6: The Arrakian Sandworm (from the DUNE universe) can eat 3 quarters of a ton of red meat in one sitting (sorry, couldn't come up with any more Wenterbury facts).





BTW…I haven’t forgotten. If the comments on my previous “Baby Russian” post hits 100 I will go through with what I promised. Oops, looks like it happened?

  1. So... I guess the thing here to do is to wish you a happy not-birthday as you've changed the date. May all your un-wishes come true.

    #2 was the best by the way. I did a bit of a spit take on that one.

    Also, Happy Birthday!

  9. Funny stuff. I can totally respect a person who tries to distract me from her age by feeding me unknown sandworm facts. That kind of crazy I can work with and would shave off up to three years for you. But your cells will know. You can never fool your cells. At night, when it is quiet, they will whisper the truth. After all, you will be in your 40s for the next twenty years if history is any judge of your ability to accept the truth about yourself. I am also okay with that.

  10. Happy 15th of Wenterbury. It aint so bad. There's some nice people in the club, and we all look (and act) at least a decade younger than we actually are. You'll fit right in.

  15. Are the kids across the street creeping ever closer to your lawn? Are you getting slightly perturbed at the notion of it?

  16. Reminds us closer to the time that it's the 14th of Wenterbury so we can all celebrate the dreaded day with you. And stay away from those menstruating goats, that's gonna leave a hell of a mess.

  21. 40's not so bad; it's the age when you stop caring so much and, Lord, is that liberating.

  25. Oh yeah, menstruating goats, so sexy...um...I mean not sexy. My therapist tells me it's not supposed to be sexy...beastiality laws suck (sigh). Happy Birthday, sort of

    ReplyDelete
  26. Isn't 40 supposed to be some kind of prime? Maybe that's for ladies. I'm thrown off from the menstruating on your birthday.

    ReplyDelete
  27. you're twice my age and are involved in a teenage ponzi scheme.

    ReplyDelete

  30. The secret to aging gracefully in your 40's? Scream and fight your way through so you'll be too tired to care that you're in the 50's. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  36. Hey, why didn't I think about that when I turned 40?

    ReplyDelete
  37. 40? No big deal... I've turned 40 dozens of time... it's no big deal!

  38. Ha! This made me laugh. I especially liked the visual of you "sauntering" down to the DMV with your official papers to announce "Wenterbury" as an official month. You so crazy.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  42. So, Happy Brithday? I'm so confused...
    You're either gonna have to remind of your next b'day, or get me an updated calendar...

    ReplyDelete
  43. Aren't you ending your fourth decade and starting your fifth decade?
    Regardless, best regards.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Don't worry, you're not entering the 4th decade of your life - you're entering your fifth!

    When you were a kid that was your first decade; when you were a teen that was your second; when you were in your 20's that was your third; and when you were in your 30's that was your fourth. So yeah, happy birthday and enjoy your 5th decade!
