I am officially The Answer to Life, the Universe and Everything. Yes, today I am 42.
This will be the first birthday I do not eat an entire 3-layer German's chocolate cake in celebration.
I don't have a good track record with birthdays. They tend to be all about me. Yes, I know that's how they normally work, and for normal people, that system works well, but for an egomaniac like myself it leads to tantrums, unreasonable demands and self-indulgence of truly epic proportions.
I am now The Answer. Today I shall be gracious. Today I shall be kind to all those who are not The Answer. Today I am All There Is, and I have no reason to be petty about it. Today I will march out my door with a Pan-Galatic Gargle Blaster under my belt, my Joo Janta 200 Super-Chromatic Peril Sensitive Sunglasses on my face, and my towel firmly in hand.
Don't panic. I am here, and I am The Answer.
Oh, and regarding all those previous birthdays...
"We apologize for the inconvenience."
So Long and Thanks for all the Fish.
