    I often successfully masquerade as a grown-up.

    I turn 68 this week but in my head I’m still 16.

    When a boy calls home with important info he has to talk to the Lump (first year term for college freshman because that voice over the phone would bring a lump to your throat).
    It has to be Gene.

    Happy Birthday, Superman.

    My wife will be talking to family on the phone using that same voice, and all I can think of is: what the heck am I gonna have to do now?

    We may mature but we don’t have to grow up!

    Could be Mary Lou, or Gus, or the neighbors (who we’ve met in the past), or one of the people on her walks, or …

    Until recently, I’d answer the phone and get “May I speak to your mother?” After getting all grown up, I’d say, “I am my mother!” My mom was the same way. Once someone asked to speak to her mother, and she said, “Being as how I’m a Senior Citizen, I don’t have a mother!”

    BTW, Happy Birthday in advance, Kent! Last Tuesday I was 79.
