Up and at them


I’m going to be 40 this year. (Letting that sink in.)

And like every 39-year old, I’ve put an existential-where’s-my-life-been/going? list together. And like most drunken lists, it’s got a cool name: 40 for 40.

I’m going to try 40 new things or meet 40 challenges this year. Later today, I’m going skiing for the first time ever.

To start the day, I’ve decided to start with energy-boosting carbs. But I got to the bagel place 10 minutes after they opened. Most of the bagels aren’t even ready yet.

In case I don’t make it back from my tango with gravity, at least I log one new accomplishment today: I beat the bagel man.
