    So in roughly 33 months, actually according to timeanddate.com, it is 2 years, 9 months and 7 days, or to look at it another way, 1011 days until I turn 40. For the curious it is March 18.
    So I want to do something cool, something spectacular and I've been wondering what. Or should I shoot for several things?
    I really don't know and several things have popped in my head, along with fun commentary...
    Write a book - Possible
    Run in a marathon - Yikes, I don't even like to walk
    Compete in a triathlon - Even more demented
    Get married - More possible than anything else, even though my friends won't like her
    Climb a mountain - Woodall Mountain (Elevation 806 feet), Mississippi here I come
    The danger Dan medley of skydiving, basejumping and swimming with the sharks - Because I secretly want to die
    I'm taking suggestions people, feel free to offer them up.

    Jay, I had not done it until Uncle Sam made me do it, but jumping out of an airplane is a thrill that I cannot describe.

    Denial works for me. This year, I will celebrate my 39th birthday yet again. I'm thinking of making it an annual event.

    Have a nice libation and smile, knowing that you're not getting older, you're getting better. At least till you get as old as spnited.

    40 is the new 20 - so enlist and head off to Baghdad...or do a triathlon. I've done a few "sprint" triathlons. 600yd swim, 10k bike, 5 k run. They're not too bad.
