Getting old is great.
Being an adult is great.
As a kid, I suspected the best thing about being an adult would be cheaper car insurance and the right to drink whiskey while taking a bath.
But there's so much more!
Chief among the perks are practical birthday presents. Every year I receive a shipment of socks from my mom, and just in the nick of time. White socks, dress socks, knee-highs, argyles.
Life is beautiful.
