Tick Tock Tick Tock...

I hear a clock ticking somewhere. I can even hear it in my sleep. No, seriously. Why is that?

Is it because I'll be the Big Four Oooooh in less than two days?!

I felt like this guy when I woke up this morning. What's that all about anyway? Seriously, there are mornings now that I wake up from a "restful" nights sleep only to feel like I've had my ass kicked by a tribe of African pygmies armed with tiny two by fours. They really like me knees and back. Little bastards.

Remember back to your 20's... when you could rebel rouse with the best of them - for days on end no less, get little to no sleep, and still carry on like a damn Tasmanian Devil? Ya, I do to. But the (not really so) funny thing is - I can't if I don't take my Ginkgo biloba. No, seriously. Without that lil ancient Chinese secret I'd be about as useful as a neutered stud horse.

A few years ago I was fond of the term "Age is only a number." Ya, well... it's a crock. Age may only be a number, but the body hates that the number keeps increasing every year.

As many of you know I'm a tried-n-true "gym rat." I've been working out for more then half my life now. It used to be that working out was all about getting big and strong, lifting the most weight humanly possible without injecting horse hormones in my ass. Now, I do it to lift my ass out of bed every morning without feeling like those pygmies got to me. How pathetic.

I think I heard 'em the other night trying to break into my house. Those little bastards.

Tell ya what though, I'm not going down without a fight. No way. Clenched right fist ready to swing, clenched beer in my left ready to swig.


I mean... this is a pretty good look for me as I enter my twilight years, right?

OK, gotta run... there's a clock ticking somewhere that needs a lickin'. Hopefully it's not a Timex.
