42 is the ultimate answer to life, the universe, and everything. That is why I am dubbing today as my “Everything Birthday.”
There is surprisingly little about everything birthdays on the world wide web. I was certain that fellow Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy fans would have made everything birthdays commonplace. I guess it is up to me.
I want to have an everything bagel for lunch today and celebrate all of the great things that have been happening in my life.
Coincidentally, this month we celebrated the 70th anniversary of Jackie Robinson breaking the colour-barrier in baseball. He changed the face of baseball and popular sport, and he did it while wearing the Number 42.
This year, I got married, celebrated the fifth anniversary of my radio show, excelled in my studies at university, rekindled my love of teaching, taught high school for the first time, and have continued to skateboard and trail run.
I have a lot to be thankful for and will be celebrating all of this, today, on my everything birthday.
