Mostly on account of…

  • Having to google both of the actors whose ages add up to mine!
  • Having traveled some 19 billion miles around our sun.
  • Considering that the first space shuttle took off when I was 7 months old, and the last took flight when I was 30.
  • The fact that a little web company called Google was founded some 16 years ago.
  • And that apparently I’ve already been alive for roughly 12,000 days!

Then again, out of 100,000 people born on my birthday, more than 3% of them are already dead and I’m not one of them, so I suppose there’s always an upside! 😉
