    I haven’t shaved since 1971. (I worked part-time as a school-bus driver in college, and the most they’d let me have was a mustache. The day I graduated was the last time I ever shaved.)

    You think 40 is “The Big One”? Pshaw! When I turned 75 I invited all my friends over to celebrate the REAL Big One: my hundredth. Oh, sure, I could’ve done it the official way and waited another quarter century, but I figured they’d probably all be dead by then.
