Happy Birthday Eric!

You're older.

You're wiser.

You're sophisticated.

You're far too mature to be concerned with material things, like presents.

Y'all remember Willard Scott? Fat weatherman who had a fetish for 100 year old people...?

I remember him interviewing this curmudgeonly old man type on his hundredth birthday, while the old guy sat there smoking a cigar and drinking a beer.

Willard asked him something to the effect of; "To what do your attribute your long life?".

The old guy looked at him like he was an idiot and said; "NOT DYING".

That man has been my hero ever since.

Haha, I heard it very similar, it was asked "Do you have any tricks or secrets to help people live a long life?" the response was "keep breathing I suppose." gotta love those old people!

Reminds me of a funny story about my grandpa, when it I was quite young we were visiting them, and my grandpa had a dish of candy on the table. So I was always told to be polite and ask for things before you just take them. So I asked my grandpa if I could have a candy? His response was "tomorrow. " so I asked him again the next day if I could have a candy? He asked me if it was tomorrow, I said well no it is today, but you said yesterday that I could have one today. To which the smart old bugger said no, I told you tomorrow, and tomorrow never comes. Come to think of it, he wasn't smart, just cheap with his candy!!!! Haha, miss the old bugger though.
