  • You are 40. 40 is such a nice age. 40 is when you are no longer a kid or someone under 40, but a full fledged 40-year-old...the big 4-0, four-zero...Let me guess, you wish I would stop saying "40"? You know, 40 years old just aren't that accepting of other's opinions. It's probably because they're 40!!
