My age has never been something that bothered me. I turned 56 this year and I am very happy that I made it to that number!! So many of my generation of Gay men were not as fortunate as I am, my generation was the hardest hit when the AIDS epidemic started.
But yesterday as I was driving to work, it dawned on me....it was 50 years ago this year I started first grade!! And then last night an old school mate of mine emailed me that they had started planning our 40th High School reunion for 2011!!!
All of the sudden it hit me....I'm not a Twinky anymore!!!!
