Since I always have time to let you know about developments in my life, I feel compelled to mention that today is my fortieth birthday. I’m even happier, though, that today is the last day of classes (not counting finals, of course).

Unfortunate timing that the after-effects of a birthday celebration include grading.
Congrats and have fun.
I hope you had a good one

Happy birthday, Jason. I’ve been enjoying your writings for a while now and look forward to your future work.
