Today I am 29. Last night, at dinner:
Galahad: "Congratulations on becoming a prime number again. You've now passed the longest stretch between prime numbers, for a while."
Omst: "There's a big gap between 29 and 31, because women turn 29 over and over again."
Me: "No, Sex and the City taught us that 30 is good."
Omst: [turning to me] "Is this the first time you're turning 29?"
Me: "Yes, of course."
Omst: "You're so good at it, for your first time."
Me: "I'm a natural. I was born to turn 29."
Tom: "29 is the new 23."
Doing hamachi shooters, for the first time. It is a combination of raw hamachi, a raw egg, and some other raw fishy materials. Much better than I expected.
