Vintage - (1975) Aged to Perfection

Today is a very special day for both Husbie and I. Especially my dear Husbie.

He turns 40 today. Yes, the big Four-OHHH!

Last night, past 12am, after wishing him the happiest happy birthday ever, he turned to me and asked...

"Am I OLD?"

"Hell yeah, you're damn old! Standing next to you makes me feel old!" 

This was the point he got kinda upset. Don't worry, just one of those gedik merajuk sesh. OBVIOUSLY I had to spend some time consoling him after. Hahahah...

There seems to be a big stigma turning 40. But I say, hey, EMBRACE IT!

So, dear Husbie, here's a continuation of my efforts in consoling your tender 40-year-old feelings. I've gathered some interesting facts and other awesome info on how fabulous being 40 actually is. 

Youth has no age.

You're actually 18 years old with 22 years of experience.

If you have any football ambitions, don't fret. Supposedly, Celtic boss Gordon Strachan played Premiership football until he was 40, while England star Teddy Sheringham still played football at 41. Sir Stanley Matthews played until he was 50. (This was a toughie. I don't know Jack-S*** about footie!)

You're 4 perfect 10's!

1975 was the year the laser printer was invented.

One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest was awarded Best Film at the Oscars in the year you were born.

In the week you were born, the number one song in the UK was I Can't Give You Anything (But My Love) by The Stylistics.

At 40, you're built for comfort not speed.

All the actors and actresses you used to think were hot now play grandparents.

You're convinced grey hair is cool.

I understand at 40, your eyebrows, nose hair and uh-hmmm, maybe hair in other areas too, will start to grow in weird directions. (I actually think this is more suited for BY the time you're forty but I will include it in this list anyways).

You're older and wiser now. Way qualified to give advice to us young'uns who just won't listen.

At the age of 40, the earth would have orbited the sun XXX times. (I tried to find this fact online but to no avail. Let's just say A LOT of times!!!)

Kidding, kidding!!!

Anyway, Happy Birthday sayaaaang! May Allah panjangkan umur you and both of us bahagia sentiasa di dunia and akhirat. May we be blessed with more rezeki soon. May you age gracefully and be even more wiser in the many many many years to come.  May your mind and wit continue to be sharp. 

Ohhh, and don't worry...

I'll be standing by the cake with the fire extinguisher tonight...unless your parents decide to just buy four tall candles or those cute numbered ones for the cake. 

Mwaaks! Luv' ya sooo much!
