Likely so. Indeed, I’m older than I was last night, as I was born 53 years ago this morning. The actual celebration will take place Saturday morning (or so, depending on when the Spawn wakes up), so today I’ve taught my classes (where among other things, we considered Dryden‘s “MacFlecknoe” as a Restoration-era diss track) and have settled in at home.
As always, I’m grateful to the many well wishers from whom I’ve heard today, and to those of you who swing by here to see what I have to say. Let’s keep hanging around together, eh? Here’s to another trip round the sun.
