10,000 Days

Today is my 10,000th day.

People are obsessed with how many times they’ve circled the sun. I’ve circled the sun a little over 27 times.

But whatever. Who cares about the dumb sun? I’m far more concerned with how many times I’ve spun around on this silly planet.

And today, I’m spinning around for the 10,000th time.

Unless you live until you’re 109, you’ll only experience three major birthdays—10,000, 20,000, and 30,000. So believe me—I'm gonna soak up every minute of it.

Now in an ironic twist I’ll be spending my 10,000th day entirely alone, without so much as setting eyes on another human being. This was not intentional. But more on that another time.

Anyway, please check with me to make sure you have my correct address on file, because I have not received your cards or gifts.

Are you okay? You don't usually make grammatical errors:
I gonna soak up every minute of it?

Why count your days?

Why send a gift when you can be one?
