I hadn't really planned on posting about my birthday today. I don't really have any special plans. It was just going to be another day. Go to gym. Go to my cleaning job. Blah, blah, blah. But I got to thinking it was kind of unusual that today I turn 54 and I was born in '54. Then I got to thinking that not everyone has that kind of birthday ('00), or realizes they do, or lives to celebrate it. The average lifespan is around 74 years after all. So I went online to find out if this birthday has a special name. You can see from my post title that it does. And you can read all about it here and here. Going Like Sixty says, "So here’s a heads up. Figure out your Beddian Birthday and start spreading the word that this is damn special and you expect very special treatment and gifts on that day. You probably should post it on your blog - maybe a countdown even. " Too bad I didn't figure this out sooner so I could have milked it for all it's worth!!!
