You’ll Be 50 Before I’m 40…

He was 11 years older than me.

I made a LOT of jokes about his age…

“You’ll be 50 before I’m 40…”

“We’ll be married for the rest of your life…”

“The who???” (whenever he was talking about a band popular in the 70’s/80’s…)

From now on… I will always, always be cognizant of my words.   They create my reality.

In 3 days, it will be his 50th birthday.

He died a month after his 49th.

We were married for the rest of his life.

I will still make jokes about bands I wasn’t old enough to remember when they came out…

In 3 days, I will bake a cake.

In 3 days, ,I will celebrate what should have been his 50th birthday.

My old man who never got the chance to get old… he will live forever in our hearts and memories…
