ten things tuesday

1 - Do you remember your 18th birthday? If so, did how did you celebrate it? I registered to vote! But it was a Monday, so I'm sure I had a family party over the weekend

2 - Have you ever met anyone that shares exactly the same birthday as yourself? This year I have one student in class--we took a selfie

3 - If you could go back in time to one of your birthdays, which one would it be? and what would you do? I would go back to 26, it would have been the sweet spot of my 20s

4 - Do you believe that age brings wisdom? indeed I do

5 - What would be the perfect birthday gift for your next birthday? I had a student give me a King Size Reese's cup. And another painted a bitmoji sign for my classroom.

6 - What do you notice most, physically and mentally, about getting older? physically--sleeping all night is a thing of the past; mentally--I'm quicker with a sharp-witted comeback

7 - Do you fear getting older? no

8 - If you could drink/eat something to stop you growing older physically, would you take it? of course!

9 - What is the best thing about growing older? closing in on retirement!

I felt the best -- the smartest, the sexiest, the happiest -- in my mid-30s. I'd go back there.
