40 THINGS TO DO WHEN YOU TURN 40



My good pal, Jonathan Ames, recommended me for a cool project that he got involved in. The editors invited me to contribute a short essay to their book collection titled, 40 THINGS TO DO WHEN YOU TURN 40, to benefit the American Cancer Society, due out this Fall. I turn 40 at the very end of May, so, I figured it was okay to cobble something together. My unorthodox nature married two old anecdotes I wrote on my blog awhile ago with some necessary glue to tackle the requisite subject matter. Unfortunately, my piece was too unorthodox and was rejected. However, I got SBX and buddy/writer, Tim Hall, in the book, and it's going to be a great read despite my absence.
