    1. Welcome to the 46 Club, Shirl, and Happy B'day (pronounced "bidet")! As a consolation prize (and at this stage in your life, consolation is really all you and I will get), I can only offer you this bit of sage advice: You're twice as smart now as you were when you were 23 but only half as limber, so be smart about who you yoga with...Split the difference and to heck with the joint pain!

      On a side note, if I were that Chilean hotdog miner and I emerged seeing my wife's shadow next to my girlfriend's, I'd have gone back underground and waited until Spring to come up again. He should be featured on the next Thousand Ways to Die
