This had to have been the least fanfare for a birthday I've ever had. I don't mind; it's just different. 21 is, of course, the biggest birthday since 16. 22 sort of matters because you're not 21 anymore. But 23 is completely insignificant, just like 24 will be. I guess that's something to add to the list of stuff that used to matter a lot but doesn't really matter anymore.
