40 And Counting...

So it happened - I turned 40 years old on Sunday.

I got on the Amtrak train to Harrisburg, PA on Friday morning - and by Friday afternoon I was doing my laundry at Dad's house in Carlisle.

Friday night I went to Mom's house in Camp Hill for Chicken Enchiladas (my favorite!). My brother Dan and "sister-in-law" Becky (they're not married, but have been together for years) came, and brought my nephew Alex, and my niece Debbie. Debbie is actually Becky's sister's daughter - but she calls me "Uncle David" - and she treats my Mom and Stepdad like grandparents - so from now on I'm considering her my niece.

Debbie is 5 years old and FIERCE. When I first met her (1 1/2 years ago), she was going through a "Wizard of Oz" phase and would only wear ruby red slippers. Also, she was ONLY to be referred to as "Dorothy Gale". Of course she immediately took a liking to her Gay Uncle David. It was then that I realized this poor girl is destined to be a HUGE Fag Hag - and will probably spend an inordinate amount of her 20's and 30's in gay bars. I thought about warning her, but I'll let her work it all out on her own. I can't wait to have a drink with her at Stallions in Harrisburg in 16 years!!!

Saturday night I went out with my bestest girlfriend Vera, and our friend Nancy. We went to Stallions - and I even danced (I was DRUNK!). I hadn't danced in years. I think I had a good time - but I was way too wasted to remember.

I crashed at Vera's and got up the next morning and hung out with Mom at a flea market. Then on Sunday night we had dinner at "The Deer Lodge" - a decent restaurant in Mount Holly, PA (where Dan and Becky live). The crabcakes were delish!!!!

Then on Monday it was all over and back to NYC! I feel SO old.......
