For A Friend

I think Robb's gone a little hippie dippie on us, folks. I think all those years of living in the hot Florida sun without any pants and with guys like Miguel for neighbors have finally gotten to him. You see, his birthday is coming up, and he's asking for presents...
It’s a simple gift. It costs as much or as little as you want. On Monday, October 15th, I want you to buy me a gift, but give it to someone else. It doesn’t matter what it is. Heck, it doesn’t even have to be something you buy, maybe just something you do.
He lists a few ideas, and they're good ones; in comments are other ideas, like buy a meal for someone in uniform. Call it "Pay It Forward" only without the annoying Kevin Spacey character. Robb's hitting the big 4-0 this month, and he'd love to see a great turnout on this birthday event. If you do decide to do something, don't tell me - tell Robb, and tell him on his birthday.

It's a great idea from a great guy - what's not to like?

That is all.

Turning forty didn't hurt nearly as much as turning thirty did. I didn't even notice turning fifty.

That's a nice sentiment Robb is promoting. Sort of "nonrandom acts of kindness."
