The Gift Year: Mad Ramblings of a 36 Year Old

At some point in the last three years, I convinced myself I was a year older. I am sure it started with just rounding up a year when my birthday was only days away and then forgetting I had rounded it up and eventually, I and everyone else thought I was a year older than I really am... The benefit.. .I have an extra year.

Next month I turn 37, meaning that I am 36 now.. this is a big surprise to me, because for the last year I was totally sure that I was 37 turning 38.

A gift year... the possibilites seem endless, what do you do with a year you thought you had already lived????
