Scottbert turns 50
Happy 50th birthday today to Scott Adams: a cat-loving vegetarian atheist Mensan (WOW! Who does that remind me of?) and the creator of Dilbert. I love his blog, check it out if you haven't already done so. I certainly relate to that cartoon too. I am really happy for all you folks who truly believe that life begins at 40, or 50, or 60, or what-have you -- but that has not been my experience. If I could freeze my age it would be at 30... OK... 29. When you are well into middle-age your body starts falling apart, also it doesn't look as good as it used to, either (unless you're like... wealthy and have good genes and a good plastic surgeon and personal trainer). The best thing about being in my 50s is that I'm not dead yet. Ain't no flies on me. Shoo flies!!!
EDIT: Scott has a post up about being 50 here. My own experience differs -- except for the cat-petting part. I've had a love/hate relationship with diet and exercise, and at 53 I'm in the "hate" part of it. I have reasons.
