Born on the Fourth of July. At 4pm of 1974. All of 4 pounds. Do the math. Your friend is officially 45.
I’m a proud Gen-Xer. I dressed up like Cindy Lauper. Danced to Menudo. Listened to Vanilla Ice. Distraught by Milli Vanilli. Swatch, Doc Martens, Beverly Hills 90210. That was our definition of cool. Then came beeper and mobile phone. Friendster and Myspace, suddenly we got the world in our fingertips!
We dreamt, we failed. We fell in love, we fell out of love. We heard the ugly, we saw the beauty. We thought we survived. Yet here we are still thriving, conquering every heartache, battling every roadblock. Life is an endless cycle. Tomorrow is never promised, so make today fabulous!
Happy birthday to my co-celebrants and Happy 4th to all who celebrate.
