You know that Judd Apatow movie This is 40? I mean do you know of it. I assume you haven’t seen it. I don’t think anybody I know has seen it. And that’s not a knock on Apatow, he makes good stuff. It’s just that it’s over 2 hours long and all the ads were Paul Rudd on the toilet so it wasn’t really a smash hit.

So, since we never found out from that movie exactly what 40 is, we’ll have to turn elsewhere. Namely, the internet. Even more namely, Twitter.

What do the 40-somethings of Twitter make of their chronological situation? Let’s dive in and find out.

10. The old one

Don’t try to ask about popular music, you’re never gonna get it.

9. Pull it

Not worth the risk, just let nature take over.

8. Everybody hurts

And you’re going to as well.

7. Don’t sweat it

Y’all need to invest in some night fans. You can never have enough.

6. A clean break

Ok, I’m not in my 40’s yet and I’m already getting there.

5. The pee pee dance

It’s the gift that just keeps on giving whether you like it or not.


4. Curiosity kills

This is why my dad always just tells me random headlines like we were talking about them.


3. A joint venture

Ha! Like any of us are ever going to be able to retire.

2. Can’t hang

Dang, WineMummy, something on your mind?

1. Road range

Get OFF my LAND!


So, that’s what you have to look forward to. Or back on? That is 40.
