[Editor's Note, 1/7/2016: As pointed out by keen-eyed Craig Hirt, Benjamin Gorman turned 39 and therefore can't plan his 39th year. Years don't work that way. His 39th year is done. He needs help planning his 40th year leading up to his 40th birthday. So thanks a freakin' lot for pointing that one out, Craig!]
First, I'd like to thank you for the birthday well-wishes:
So I'm turning 39. I'm not sure how I feel about that. My thirties have been pretty cool, over all, but there have been a few hiccups, so it's entirely possible my forties will be even better. As I wrap up my thirties, I'd like to get some help from you, my friends, regarding how best to finish out this decade and start the next. So, in the comments section below, if you are fewer than 39 years old, please write something you would like to accomplish before you turn 40. If you are more than 40 years old, please write something you wish you'd done in your thirties. Regardless of your age, write down your idea for the ideal fortieth birthday party (I have a year to plan it!). Let the fun begin!
