If you know me in real life (IRL) you may know that yesterday was my 40th birthday.
Birthdays for me have always been a mixed bag. I have a fantastic set of friends who love nothing better than to systematically torture and revive me on my birthday. In recent years March 8th has always been a massive cramming day to study for midterms just before spring break.
Or starting a new job. Or fighting off shingles. Or just playing with a newborn fussypants.
This year was quiet. I was able to work from home. I accidentally made a lasagna.
It was a good day.
My wife got me a super kickass birthday present. I will soon have a proper ramen prep station when we host ramen night.
