Once In My Lifetime

Today I am fifty-eight years old! The only time in my lifetime I’ll be the same age as my birth year, 1958. (well, not the one thousand, nine hundred, bit) Which I think is a remarkably wonderful and curious thing.

In lieu of cake, which I can't eat until at least Monday

Yesterday I underwent the next step in my tooth implant adventure which I posted about in May with the ‘oh-so-very-understated-title of ‘I had a hole drilled in my skull the other day’.  This time it was only a small, relatively speaking, procedure, to screw in the pin that will secure the thingy that the new tooth will be built around. But still there was the local anesthetic, and the blood, and the stitching, and the sore jaw to endure. All of which means that today I’m celebrating my birth day with analgesics and a hot water bottle plastered to the side of my face.

Mrs Widds, who is doing her bi-monthly retreat, (full, and dark, of the Moon) left a beautiful hand made card on my desk for me to find this morning.

As Fifty-Eighth Birth Days go, this one’s not too bad.

What my teefs will look like ... heh, heh, heh

    Happy Birthday Widdershins 🙂 Oddly enough, when I’m 74, I’ll be the same age as my birth year! 🙂

    Not the best way to celebrate… I got flu for my 58th the other day 😉 A belated Happy Birthday 🙂

  6. An interesting statistic. Hope all goes well and you have a good birthday. My statistic I rather liked was 07.07.07 when I reached official retirement age which was then still 65.

  7. Happy Birthday! At this rate, I’ll be having the same accompaniment for mine in November! Oh, what it is to have constant dental work. Feeling for you and hope that by the time you read this, the pain and soreness have abated.

  8. Happy birthday! I hadn’t looked at being 58 that way, but now that you mention it — cool!

    Many congratulations! I’m sorry to hear about the toothwork (Hmm… I don’t think that’s a real word!), but at least you’ll have a million dollar smile when the swelling goes down. 😀

    Incidentally, I just calculated that my age and the birth year won’t be the same until 2034. 🙂
