    Of course, but make sure you bring some ladies with you, otherwise it'll be awkward with just us two blokes. :D

    Might have to beg off tonight anyways...would you believe I tripped over a frickin' pumpkin pallet at work? Remember being airborne, then impact, then the embarrassment of just wanting to crawl off and lick your wounds, crap I have to be back for 8:45am...I do have the ladies lined up however;)

    I'd contend it's only mostly in the mind. Sometimes I want to do things like jump over a row of hedges that was a cinch as a child and teen, but 10 yrs later the darn things grow and my legs ache a whole lot more after a hard landing...ice is a whole lot less fun from this side of 30 too, go figure.

    Yeah there is a certain amount of lack of "bounce" as you get older, but apart from that it's mostly your attitude that determines if you become 'old' or not.

    The disturbing realization that the covering doctor who just walked in the room, the police officer out there diverting traffic, the brand new district manager that you have to report to...
    ...are all younger than your children:eek: This is not confidence inspiring

    I went to a job interview yesterday and I swear the interviewing supervisor looked like she was still in junior high. I wanted to cry.
