you know you're getting old when...

...your birthday present is a new keyboard for your computer. Not because you wanted one, but because you needed one, because you spilled miso soup on your old one and, as if that wasn't stupid enough, you didn't think to unplug it right away and it shorted out and stopped responding.

I did the same exact thing about 9 years ago, except with water. You'd think that I'd remember the lessons I learned back then, but...hey, what can I say, it was a long time ago and, as we have established, I am old. I mean - for my birthday, I got something that I not only needed, but that I needed right now, this is an emergency. At least we went out to dinner while we were at the mall.
