The Intersection

I’m 29

Born September 20, 1977, in Mesa, Arizona. (And I’m speaking very near there on Sept 27!)

I don’t remember at what time of day I was born. I’d have to call my Mom to find that out and she’s probably asleep at the moment. However, I do remember hearing that I apparently didn’t cry. Read into that what you will…

    Happy birthday! According to my daughter’s logic, now you’re almost OLD like me.

    You’re too young. You’re making the rest of us (well, some of the rest of us) look bad. Stop it immediately. Wait until you hit 40 before you become well known and accomplished, OK? There are Rules…

    Happy birthday!

    I’m especially glad to hear that you’re (barely) older than me. :)

    Happy birthday Chris! I can’t wait for the paperback edition of your book to get here by mail. BTW, I’ll be turning 28 in six days myself. Let’s party! :D

    My envy runneth over. So much accomplished in so little time. My only solace is knowing how much you sacrificed by living in such a place as D.C.

    1977. That was quite a year, apparently. For instance this guy was having fun:

    I hear that he later got a haircut and joined up with the Discovery Institute (just kidding). Happy birthday!

    Thanks to all of you. I don’t feel any different–just tired and with a slight cold, the lingering effects of phase one of the book tour. I have to work today on the hurricane book, but I’ll probably take some time out to get dinner out, though.

    Happy birthday, Chris.

    You’re catching up to me in a logarithmic way.

    In four years, I’ll only be twice your age.

    Wow, you’re about half a year younger than me.

    I feel like Caesar did at 30, looking at a statue of Alexander the Great and bemoaning that at his age, Alexander had conquered most of the known world. ;-)

    Best wishes.

    Working on a hurricane book is an excellent way to spend one’s 29th birthday, especially when one’s previous book is a resounding success.

    How can you be 2 years younger than me and autographing books?
    Happy birthday!

    At the age of 29 I was doing nothing nearly as useful as you are at your age – you’re already have a very positive influence, and we are looking forward to more (so what it’s going to be next, President by 40?)

    Happy Birthday, brother! The wine and beer are here; we’ll just defer celebration until you can grace the Southland with your presence and message next month!
